Dr. Hofflich is a knowledgeable, warm, and caring physician. It is her dedication to her patients, her positive and reassuring attitude , along with her medical knowledge and research abilities that have gotten me through many complicated health issues. Dr. Hofflich is an excellent diagnostician. However, she will email other doctors on your behalf, or refer you to a specialist, if need be. I trust Dr. Hofflich with all of medical care. I know she cares about me and all of her patients. She has

If you have hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto's, please DO NOT waste your time with Hofflich. She does not have the competence to treat this complex condition. Hashimoto's, the leading cause of hypothyroidism in the US, is an autoimmune condition where the body attacks the thyroid with antibodies (revealed in blood work via the anti TPO antibody test). Please find an integrative or a functional doctor that shows compassion, listens to your symptoms, and examines the root cause. To educate yours

Caring but limited comptence!

I found that Dr. Hofflich's staff is mostly courteous, Dr. Hofflich herself listens very well (and isn't one of those doctors who thinks they know your body better than you), and is willing to work with you on treating your condition. However, it's incredibly difficult to get in touch with anyone in her office (if you're calling in for endocrinology and not internal medicine), and even more difficult to get an appointment with her. Wait times can exceed 2.5 months for an appointment; ridiculous!
