Patient Comments (5)
Eugene, OR |
Ten minutes after my appointment time, I did see a technician, and after a couple tests was directed to an over-flowing waiting room where I waited for over an hour to see the doctor who spent about three minutes with me. He was not familiar with my chart at all, and needed to ask me what exactly I was there for. He was neither personable nor friendly. The staff seemed harried. My sense is the office over-books; staff said it was usually that busy. I will not return.

The office staff are the absolute worst! Lies deceit and retaliation when you stand up for yourself! What bothers me most, is if this doctor will stand for this behavior, what else is substandard? If they allow an employee who will behave like this who has worked for him for a month, what else will he allow? Take your business to a company who deserves your trust and your business!!!! Refusing to release records is illegal!

I would suggest you to find another doctor. Dr. Hoffman is well qualified, has lots of awards, and diplomas but he is more a robot and will treat you like cattle. He lacks communication and interpersonal skills. He has too many patients, you will wait a long time to get an appointment and finally once you see him, you will be lucky if he spends more than 5 minutes with you. I do not recommend him at all. The staff is not efficient managing medical records either.
in Eugene, OR |
Dr. Hoffman & staff are very professional and up to date on the most current research and care. I highly recommend their clinic for anyone who needs any type of eye care. Seeing an ophthamologist that is cutting edge can help you get the best care in Eugene. The reason why there is wait time is dilating drops are often used, testing is done & the physician examines you.
Eugene, OR |
Poor bedside manner. Inappropriate comment to patient about physical appearance. Did not introduce self or meet patient, answered a number of questions with I don't know. Gave conflicting, confusing advice. Walked out of room without a word before patient had clarification on advice. Wait times were 1 1/2 to 2 hours past appointment time both visits.
