Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I've seen Dr. Hofer at NW for over a year. He performed surgery on me once. I found him to be a great doctor. He's apparently leaving NW in August 2020. I hope he will still be practicing somewhere in the Chicago area. The Urology department at NW can be a circus. Dr. Hofer and Dr. Schaeffer made it tolerable.

Dr. Hofer is great!! He took the time to explain & show me the reason for having the procedure. There are not many doctors that do that & this is how compassionate he is. I’ve been here several times & never had a problem. No waiting & he even called to give results. I’m definitely going to recommend.
