Patient Comments (2)
I think reviews are important, as this is what Helps in my decision on who to see and what to buy. I went to Dr. Hofer in December of 2015 for and old injury to my left wrist,which was getting to the point that my hand was almost useless. The Doctor took X-rays and told me that this would be a challenge to repair and that he was going to consult with another doctor. I had my surgery and am now in physical therapy.This doctor is highly recommended!

This is February 2016. I read all the bad reviews, but needed help and I was referred so I went. I love this doctor. I love his staff too. He went over my x-rays with me. He explained everything,answered my questions, gave me a shot. The doctor and his staff were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and patient. Do not be afraid to come here. He is my new go to doc for my troublesome knee. I would happily refer him to my closest friends.
