Dr. Hoffman it's a very very nice . But this time he disappointed me, he gave me an injection in my elbow and he may have pinched a nerve to where I've been suffering the pain in my elbow all the way down my forearm. Maybe I need to see a nerve specialist. The pain feels like I have a truck Park on my forearm. Four stars just because he was very polite.

Where do I begin! Dr.Hoffman treated me for a left shoulder injury I sustained in a car accident.He was very straight forward with a great sense of humor. He explained my injury and we scheduled surgery. I am pain free and the results have spoken for themselves. He was spot on when it came to knowing exactly what was wrong.Wendy his nurse is very helpful as well and is a sweetheart.They go above and beyond and made me feel like I was their only patient! Thanks for everything!
