Patient Comments (2)

By far the worst doctor I have ever seen. He wouldn't explain anything to me and I had to ask numerous questions multiple times just to get the slightest bit of information.

Dr. Hoistad took A LOT of time to answer my questions and make sure I was comfortable with the information given to me. He may be a bit eccentric, but I found him to open-minded and supportive. He was even open to discussion about doing local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia.
