WAS REFERRED TO DR LONGHOFER BY AN ORTHO, DR LONGHOFER IS VERY NICE AND EXPLAINS THINGS VERY WELL. I HAVE TREATED WITH HER FOR OVER A YEAR. SHE HAS DONE TWO SURGERIES TO CORRECT WHAT THE ORTHO DID NOT FIX CORRECTLY AND JUST DID NOT FIX DURING HIS SURGERY. DR. LONGHOFER IS A WONDERFUL AND A VERY GOOD DOCTOR AND I WOULD AND WILL USE HER AGAIN IF I OR MY FAMILY NEEDS A HAND SURGERY. I WILL REFER FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO DR LONGHOFER. I BELIEVE DR, LONGHOFER IS THE BEST IN AMARILLO

I started seeing Dr. Longhofer due to pain in my thumb, and as a mechanic it was something I was dealing with on a daily basis. She was very professional and explained to me what was going on in my thumb in a way that was easy to understand. She told me that I did not need surgery and she could treat my thumb by injection. She has really helped me and I would strongly recommend her.

I broke my finger she was very professional and took the time to to listen to me and explain what my options were and what needed to be done. I decided surgery was the best option for me. She did my surgery and everything is doing well. I highly recommend her and the rehab the staff at panhandle bone and joint!!!! Roy L. Howard

I met Dr. Longhofer recently when I began having trouble with painful contraction of my fingers. She is a very educated and pleasant person with good bedside manner. Her examination of my hands and fingers was complete and well explained. She did not feel that I was a surgical candidate, and prescribed therapy. I was impressed with her conservative approach, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing medical attention in her chosen field. Thanks for allowing me to comment.GEB
