Dr. Engelen and his staff are incredible. They have been so patient with me in dealing with my chronic neck and trap pain. Dr. Engalan has significantly improved my quality of life by offering routine trigger points, along with constantly trying new approaches that benefit me. He and his staff are friendly, efficient, and extremely talented.

I have been to Dr Engelen several times and he is nothing short of AWESOME! He is kind, professional and he really listens to you! He takes the time & steps needed to see what works best for you. It's never generic help! His recommendations for therapy was excellent! I saw him at today at new office 82 S 1100 E Ste 303 Dr Engelen's new #801-505-5370. If you can't tell already...I HIGHLY Recommend him if you want 5 star treatment from him and his wonderful nurse!

Dr. Engelen has such positive energy and outlook. After a rugby injury, we were fortunate to be referred to him. We wanted a non surgical sports medicine doctor. Dr. Engelen was awesome at explaining our son's injury. He coached a kid (who does not always like to listen to adults) through a plan that included PT and daily exercise. Our son listened and stuck to the plan. A few weeks later he was back on the field running stronger than ever before.

Dr. Engelen was knowledgeable and thorough. He was not quick to recommend surgery but recognized the seriousness of my issue and took quick action. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of his staff. I have 20 years of living with Lupus and have vast experience with doctors offices and I have never encountered such a poorly run, rude, and inept staff as those working at the Hoffman Arthritis Clinic. Because of their incompetence and callous behavior I will not be returning.

Based on my wife's experience I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. She called last week to schedule an appointment and was given an appointment today at 3:00 p.m. This morning someone called me rather than her asking to change the time. When she got to the clinic his name was not on the listing and it was only after she found his wife's office on the 2nd floor that she located his office but because she was late (after going to the wrong floor) he refused to see her.
