      Having seen Dr Hoffman for bunion repairs on both feet I am extremely happy with the outcome. Both surgeries were complex but performed very well by Dr Hoffman. His staff has been awesome with follow up appointments and answering any and all questions or concerns I’ve had. His treatment philosophy of minimal medications has made my recovery quicker and healthier than past experiences. I would highly recommend Dr Hoffman’s practice to anyone who has foot or ankle issues that need addressed.

      I was born with cavus feet (super high arches is the hallmark) that increasingly caused pain to the point where I couldn't walk without wincing. After 60 years of custom orthotics, PT, and flat boring shoes, Dr. Hoffman patiently explained how he could correct much of my problems with reconstructive surgery. Surgery on my left foot was in Feb 2020 and I am now in the final stage of PT. I am amazed at the results, and couldn't be more satisfied with the care received by Dr. Hoffman and his staff. So satisfied, in fact, that I have scheduled surgery on my right foot in October. I highly recommend Dr. Hoffman!

      Dr Hoffman did a great job of providing me all of the available options and resources to try to fix tendon issues without surgery. When I decided to go forward with surgery, he did an outstanding job and located the problem that was not totally detected in Xrays so I am so happy I went the surgery route instead of continuing to live with pain. He and his staff were knowledgeable and caring and I feel fantastic 2 weeks post-op (despite a long recovery)!

      Dr. Hoffman performed a procedure on an ingrown nail that was infected . I was very nervous going into my appointment, but Dr. Hoffman and his staff were very informative and put me at ease. The procedure was much easier than I expected and I had very little pain after!

      Dr. Hoffman was like 6-7 ortho, ankle doc seen. Recommended by guy who had surgery done by him- very successful. I had a ankle joint replacement Aug. 5, 19. He‘s personable, listens, asked questions & answered All of mine & explained everything to me, why he felt this was the best choice for me. Others did not, that was Main problem for me. I’m walking, had very little pain, if any, little spirts, but nothing severe or lasting. It’s a long haul, but has been worth it for me. Never took meds after 1st 4 days; just ice packs & after bandages off/ healed, epsom salt water soaks, kept elevated & went to therapy which is a must. I’ve been to many docs & would recommend him & have to several friends & acquaintances! I give him a 5+! Carole J S Effron, Carmel - 3/11/20

      Thirteen days ago, I saw him for a second opinion on my chronic ankle pain & swelling. He gave me an injection. Since then, my pain has not gone below "6"!!! I'm NEVER going back to him!

      Addendum to my previous review: 100% will recommend Dr. Hoffman to family and friends. As a retired OB RN, I ran constantly during my 12 hour night shifts and that did a number on my feet. I suffered with pain, bunions, and a hammertoe. Dr. Hoffman discussed what was needed to be done and I am so thankful for him. That was 3 years ago!! I had no regrets and no problems. I made and appointment to see him today because I stubbed my great toe awhile back and was worried I damaged the hardware.....but I’m good. Dr. Hoffman’s mild and professional demeanor will relax even the most anxious person!! He’s the BEST!

      Dr Hoffman performed reconstructive surgery on a deformed heal bone and Achilles tendon repair. Dr Hoffman was very informative prior to, and after, the surgery. Everything was right on track and is healing great. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience. Thanks Doc.

      I have been very happy with all aspects of my major ankle surgery performed by Dr. Scott Hoffman. I think I was well informed prior to the operation.We had a plan, we had goals and we managed to stick to them. I am about two months ahead of where I thought I would be. I am riding my bike; walking my dogs and have re-learned to walk with very little signs of a limp. I had excellent post op care and rehab from Zionsville Physical Therapy. I'm confident I will be walking limp free within weeks.

      After experiencing crippling ankle pain for many years and undergoing surgery at another facility, I continued to have pain. I eventually had surgery with Dr. Hoffman and I now walk without pain for the first time in years! I am incredibly thankful for everything Dr. Hoffman and his staff have done for me!
