I am a long-term patient of Dr. Hockensmith's. She is prompt, honest, knowledgable, straight forward and I trust her judgment and her recommendations. I'm a kidney transplant patient (nearly 21 years ago) and I've worked with a lot of doctors and she is the best one I've ever worked with. I look for every opportunity I can to sing her praises.
