Dr. Hoekzema is an excellent, awesome, kind, professional & highly qualified Dr./Surgeon. He took superb care of me as I had carpal tunnel Syndrome. My surgery was out Patient at Clovis Community. Everything went smooth & timely. The actual surgerical procedure only took 10 Min. I came right home & had only minimal discomfort. No pain pills needed. Thanks to Dr. Hoekzema & the entire team at Clovis Community, too. Their motto is “I am the Patient Experience”. They all lived up to it!

Excellent Doctor gave you his full attention . He made you feel relaxed and gave you concordance. He was very caring and answer my question without and feeling of rushing through the appointment. 'Didn't have to wait long to see him, appointment time was true and also very short time in the exam room. Staff was very pleasant and friendly. I have only been to see Doctor H. one time but he left me with a feeling that I'm very happy he's my doctor.

I had an appt for the 1st time Oct. 30. I was looking forward to getting the Dr.'s prof. evaluation re cyst on my wrist. I was not disappointed. He used an i-pad + ultrasound & showed me what my cyst looked like, (+muscles & arteries). This was helpful. He also talked to me about options for surgery but did not push one or another option. He gave me info. I needed, though I'm still deciding. (I can call if have more Q's.) (Sylvia C. was very helpful too.)-- I'd 100% trust Dr. H. as a surgeon!
