Have gone to Dr. Laura Hoffman for about 5 years now -- regular whole body skin checks as skin cancer runs in my family. She also treats other skin problems on my fair skin. She is warm, friendly and personable. I have never had any trouble getting appointments with her. My husband has been going to her now for almost 10 years and she does the biopsies and remove skin tags right at his first visit instead of waiting. He then was scheduled for a follow up check.

Dr. Hoffman rushed through the exam, was dismissive, and rude. She did the bare minimum when looking over my skin! Poor bedside manner. Worst experience with a Dr...EVER.

Dr. Hoffman is super nice and so easy to talk to. She is very prompt once you get called in. explained the medication I would need to take and what other steps we may need to proceed with if medication did not work. She is very popular, if it isn't something medically urgent you may be looking at an appt a couple weeks out. However all urgent matters are handled by clinical staff and are able to accommodate for sooner appt
