I had a rash, fatigue and joint pain and Dr Hozman diagnosed my condition by the second office visit . I have been to so many other rheumatologists that couldn’t help me . I’m now being treated and I’m feeling like I have my life back !

Have been seeing Dr. Hozman for over a year. Most of the time he wants to have you come in each month. He barely does a physical exam, and makes you wait for over an hour, most in a closet. Have a terrible time getting refills of ongoing medication and the records are not updated. Only continue because of insurance.

Dr Hozman saved my life two times in the past year. He is an outstanding doctor, bringing clinical objectivity, remarkable empathy, intuition and years of experience and knowledge to my exceedingly complex case, even when it was outside his area of expertise. He is extremely intelligent and it seems has a "sixth sense" about medicine. Most importantly, he really cares about his patients.

One of the worst Drs ever. The follow through is absolutely terrible Takes forever to get refills, you have to keep calling until they get thing right. Their records are not updated correctly. Now I'm really done. He will not fill my prescription until he sees me even thought I have an appointment set up for next week. I was told from their office he was scolding me because I missed an appointment. They don't have an answering service to cancel my apt.

If I could give this doctor negative stars, I would! He is horribly unethical! All he cares about is putting his patients on medications, so he can have you come back for refills. His office staff turns over often and quickly. Therefor, they often give misinformation and are extremely rude! The wait to see this doctor is never less than an hour. He is very unorganized and cares little to none about his patients well being. He is more interested in getting a free lunch from the drug reps.

I'm 61 years old and this is the best doctor I have ever had . Will always get you in when needed. Will give you all the time you need which can back up the wait time to see him , but I would rather have to wait for a doctor who will listen and give you time than one who rushes you out.

Dr. Hozman is hard to pin down on exactly what is wrong. You get a report on an Cray or blood test, and his inturpetation often changes from one week to the next. He doesntvanswer questions even when pressed. Or his answers are vague. He wasn't always this way, but he changed over the years. Since the advent of computers in his office, I never see his face even while I'm speaking. I often ask him to please stop and look at me while I'm speaking.

Dr. Hozman really cares about his patients. He has been known on many occasions to have called me personally at home. He tells me that he just wants to check on me, he was worried about me. He is an amazing doctor, he truly loves his patients. He is brilliant and effective and I have to drive over 2 hours to see him now, but it is so worth it!

Dr Hozman has a private practice. These days your dont see many private practices . I respect the private practice culture as these are the type of doctor offices I grew up going to. Dr. Hozman is an experienced professional that anyone should be able to see and respect. I feel confident in Dr. Hozman s medical advice for my arthritis condition.

This was the worst experience I have ever had at a doctors office. It was crowded and loud, the staff was standing around on their cell phones. I wanted over 45 minutes to see the doctor. The new patient forms were redundant and looked like they had been photocopied several times badly, with sections just x-ed out. Once I was with the doctor, he did a quick exam, seemed dismissive of lab results I had brought. Which were the reason for my visit. Andrew at the front desk was nice.
