My husband had open heard surgery at SMH. Dr. Hoffberger was recommended by two friends, one of whom had had same procedure. Given the magnitude of this surgery we were obviously concerned. When we left his office after the original consultation, I personally felt more confident than on my way in. Dr Hoffberger took the time to explain what was coming, what should be expected and how all was going to be done. I felt my husband was in good hands and i trusted this man with his life. Surgery went according to plan, and although recovery will be long, it is moving in the right direction So thankful for Dr Hoffberger and his team. Thank you and God continue to bless your hands and your heart.

Dr. Hoffberger performed minimally invasive surgery to replace my aortic valve on March 10th, 2021 at Sarasota Memorial. Everything went according to plan and I was out of bed within 24 hours of having the surgery and had no complications. Its been 20 days since surgery and my recovery has been excellent. Prior to the surgery he spent as much time in his office as I needed explaining my options and his recommendations; and post surgery he was attentive and followed up daily during my stay. His staff is outstanding, responsive and caring. Not having to have the traditional surgical method with chest cracking saved me both pain and more recovery time. As an actual patient, I highly recommend Dr. Hoffberger for his expertise with minimally invasive surgery, his caring attitude and cutting edge methods to deal with heart disease.

My name is Greg and I am a Registered Nurse for close to 30 years. I had a CABG x4 in March of this year. I have had no complications at all and can not express how grateful I am for the professional and compassionate care I received from Dr. Hoffberger and his wonderful staff. His assistant, Paula, walked me through every single pre-op visit and his PA and ARNP were very accomodating. Again thank you for everything.

Dr. Hoffberger performed a CABG X 4 and an aortic valve replacement surgery on me and I recovered without experiencing any pain to speak of. Surgery was performed a year ago and I have not had a bad day since.

I am a 75 year old Female. I had Aortic Valve Stenosis that became Critically Severe over the last 3 years because of my fear of open-heart surgery. Our search led us to Dr. Jonathon Hoffberger at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. He had a better solution, offering a Minimally Invasive approach thru an incision between my ribs under my right arm. He performed the implantation of a new Aortic Valve on June 3,'19, and I walked unassisted into my own home before noon on June 6 with no pain at all. We cannot praise Dr. Hoff's work loudly enough. We regret waiting 3 years. Had we known about him earlier, we would not have delayed doing it sooner. So, if you find yourself in need of a heart surgery procedure, don't delay. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment to see Dr. Jonathon Hoffberger to see if he can resolve your problem in a less invasive way. He and his staff are wonderful, as was the experience at Sarasota Memorial. You won't find better!

July 11, '19 I'm Male, 79. This year, I've experienced new energy levels, both physical and mental, and am feeling better than I have for years. All thanks to Dr. Hoffberger's open-heart surgery 7 days shy of a year ago, to repair my Mitral Valve and replace my Aortic Valve; both regurgitating severely. In Feb. during an ultrasound exam, the medic said he's done them 30+ years, at places he mentioned including the Cleveland Heart Clinic, and he's not seen work this good. That was good to hear, but I was not surprised. My thanks are inadequate, I'm in debt to Dr. Hoffberger literally for saving my life. None finer!

I am a 77 year old male who had open heart surgery Nov. 20, 2018.If you are in need of a heart surgeon, look no further. Dr. Hoffberger is a gifted surgeon. I met him the first time on a Friday at 4:00PM. I was taken by wheel chair from SMH to his office ( after a catherization procedure) for a consult. I was immediately impressed with his demeanor, confidence ( not cocky) and willingness to help but with no pressure. 10 days later I had my surgery. I made the correct decision... so will you

Dr. Hoffberger took on my case, which was urgent (coronary bypass surgery X3), and made me feel immediately comfortable about such a big event in my life. He absolutely did an incredible job, and was professional and personable all the way through release from recovery weeks later. Would (and do) recommend him to everyone I know that needs heart-related surgery.

I can't say enough great things about Dr Hoffberger and his staff. My husband had to have his aortic valve replaced just over a month ago and it went great. Dr. Hoffberger was so wonderful and talented. Husband was out of the hospital in 3 days. SMH is the best place to have this type of surgery and Dr Hoffberger is the best Doc to do it. Staff is very friendly and helpful answered all our questions. Great group of people. Thanks guys for everything.

I recently had a heart valve replacement by Dr Hoffberger, It couldn't have worked out better for me. This kind of major surgery and I was back working in 6 days. I came home after 3 days, I went back to work the sixth day in my home office. And I was off all pain meds including aspirin 6 days after surgery. Special thanks to the Dr Hoffberger's staff, the first few days after coming home I pestered them but they ALWAYS assured me everything is going as expected...
