Dr. Hoover is a total jerk. Doesn’t want to hear what patients have to say. I walked out of every visit crying because he is so belittling. He may be good at what he does, but not good enough to put up with his berating. I wouldn’t recommend him at all—-find another doc!

Dr. Hoover has a considerably different approach in regards to treatment and diagnosis, one of which he may never stop talking until you cut him off. I personally appreciate this, as I can handle the mild stress of an overload of information. He will be providing my surgery coming up soon based on diagnosis, and I have all faith and trust in Larry.
