What People Say About Dr. Scott Hoffinger, MD

I don’t even know where to begin. Dr. Hoffinger is god-sent. My child has been seeing him for over a year, and he has been amazing leading the way to heal her congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia. He listens to my thoughts as her parent, plays with my child, and works with us to manage her difficult condition. Her comfort, and the functionality of her limb is always on the forefront of his mind. If we hadn’t changed her care to Dr. Hoffinger, I don’t know if she would still have her leg.

SUPERIOR doctor, incredible knowledge, and compassion. Won't lie to you, won't sugar coat it, gives it to you in everyday language. Best of all he'll do everything he can to help. My son has a bone disorder, and we've been seeing Dr. Hoffinger for several years, and after exhausting many other options we finally opted for surgery to fix problem. We cannot express our gratitude for Dr. Hoffinger's skill, compassion, and helpfulness.
