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.
