About Me

Sir William Osler, MD taught "Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis."  You tell me over 80% of what I need to know, so I listen.  I find a few surprises on examination, so I do a complete exam.  Tests add another 5-10...

Dr. Hodges was my primary care physician for about 4 years. He was the best primary care doc I had ever had. Fabulous bedside manner and a great diagnostician. He was beyond helpful in many ways. Recommending a great cardiologist and a Physiatry doctor. Both excellent.

If you want a doc who listens, who respects your curiosity and who never rushes through an appointment, Dr. Hodges is for you. He clearly has decided that he loves practicing medicine and takes time to treat you as an individual. You will get a thoughtful response to all your questions and he will give you well-reasoned opinions. He does sometimes run late, but for the best reason in the world: he is giving every patient the amount of time needed.

Dr Hodges has been my doctor for 25+ years. He is the best, most knowledgable and caring doctor. He loves to figure out your problem and will explain it in a way that you can understand. He takes all the time needed to get to know you which does happen with many doctors. Talking with other patients in the waiting room, some from distances as far as Tumwater, all say the same....he's the only doctor they would consider seeing which says it all. Thanks Dr Hodges.

I have seen DR.Hodge's for at least five years. He is the best doctor you could ever have, he always listen's and is very caring and understanding. Never hurries a patient through the appointment, that's why his paients usually have a wait to see him. It is worth every minute of the wait time if a patient is truly ill.He is like doctors use to be back in the day.Truly a hero!!!!! Thank you Dr. Hodges, Diane Fry
