Dr. Hoffert is a great guy. I met with him a year ago. I had surgery with a different doctor and went to Dr. Hoffert for a second opinion on pain I was still having. He was so personable, he listened and gave me great advice. A year later I went back for a related issue. He remembered me, remembered what we spoke about. He spent so much time with me in comparison to my former surgeon. He even gave me tips on walking my dog to avoid the pain. He also has dazzling baby blues as a bonus :)

I Needed Urgent surgery for removal of gallbladder. Dr. Hoffert was on call and Performed the surgery on a Sunday. Excellent doctor, professional, caring and takes the times to talk to the patient. My surgery was performed laparoscopically and my recovery was timely without complications. I was able to return to work in 3 weeks. I feel very fortunate that Dr. Hoffert was the oncall doctor and I have recommended him to friends and family!
