What People Say About Dr. Lucia Dias-Hoff, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I needed a PC and after calling several offices she was the only one excepting new patients in my area! The minute she walked in it became apparent why she was taking new patients! She is a horrible doctor who has no bedside manner and really no interest in her patient. Do yourself a favor DO NOT go see her . No one needs that negative mocking behavior in their lives. Awful! I am very surprised she is has been practicing for 25 yrs. :(

Never seen the doctor, only saw NP in office, who prescribed meds to me that did not help and I had to go to urgent days later. Office staff is unprofessional, rude and completely unhelpful. They dismiss my questions and had no further explanations for me. They had the audacity to tell me that my expectations were ridiculous as I got there an hour before office closed. I work a full-time job and their hours are NOT accommodating. Don't waste your time and find an office that actually cares!

I've never felt my doctor was incompetent before, but coming to this office was like being seen by an actress who had been told to act like a doctor but had no idea what she was doing. I needed a standard annual physical, and she literally did almost nothing. A complete waste of time and money. Instilled no confidence in her as a primary care provider.

I would give her a zero if I could. This was the most unprofessional doctor I have ever seen in my life. I recently moved from Boston to Fall River and needed a new doctor. I went to my appointment And the they didn't even have me in the system I had to wait almost 2 hours. I needed a new physical for my job. When I finally was seen by the "doctor" just kept telling me how over weight I was. I told Her I was on anxiety medication after finding my parents dead and she said "wow still"? Very rude!

Very poor professional ethics. I went to the providence office. I had an appointment for Friday March 24th and on Tuesday March 21st they called from her office saying that she will no longer be seeing patients at the providence office 3 days before my appointment. NO ETHICS.

I was warned that this doctor who replaced Dr Pinto wasn't to punctual. After waiting 45 mins for my physical I was brought in and told I wouldn't be done with the physical for at least an hour. Never even met the Dr and I'm all set. Last year I was seen right at my appt time and it took 15 mins. Getting another primary

They do not set out reminders nor do they call for an appintoment . They have just canceled my birth control out of nowhere in multiple occasions and will not refill it til I go in for appintoment when I didn't even know I needed one. Receptionist is rude and the doctor questions your sexual relationship unless your married . This office is nothing but aggravation and they are not easy to deal with .

The receptionist is awful. They constantly make you come in to get your copay even if you just need a referral to see a specialist. Worst Drs office I have ever been to.
