He operated on my Son causing paralysis. Never came to see him after surgery. Worst Dr. ( and I use the term loosley) I have ever met. There are 3 people in my family he has operated on who are now in worse shape than before....stay away

Because the staff at his office did not cancel my appointment when I called he would not reschedule me. Even when told it was his office that made the mistake. What a joke!!!

I had surgery monday on the 14 of August and i thought the surgery went well ,after being discharged from the hospital the next day all was ok .but by Wednesday i was in excruciating pain so i called office at 9 am and told the lady on the other my symptoms, she said she would talk the PA and get right back to me ,well 6 hours later still nothing and the pain got worse ,i felt like i had been pushed aside because my surgery was already done ,i mean c'mon they can't take 5 min to call back ?.

I had a horrible experience with Dr Stoffman!! He told me I needed neck surgery but he wouldn't be doing it because I was fat and unhealthy and wouldn't want to tell my family I died during surgery because of being fat and unhealthy also told me to come back and see him when I weighted 160. His beside manner is horrible!!! And I really feel alot of it has to do with my insurance... I rate him a zero across the board!!!!!

I have had back pain for 20-30 years, if not longer on and off. I am no a retired er nurse. It was all manual labored. I have herniated dics. I have never had such severe back pain like I have had for the past year. dr stoffman is kind listens to me. everyone in his office is kind and responsive to me because I usually call 2 or 3 times a week. I am very happy with all the care, before and after surgery
