He is an amazing surgeon. He is totally overworked (and often dozing off in appts with me) but he’s competent and the work he’s done on me is life changing. I am very happy I found him and hope he teaches others all he knows before he retires, he’s truly an amazing doctor. Highly recommended with some reservations as I mentioned staff can be very difficult to deal with and billing & coding handled by front end staff could be much better. His level of interaction with me was minimal but positive

I have a chronic skin condition and no one was able to provide amazing treatment and support like Doctor Hoffman. I had searched for help for years and am so grateful he was referred to me. He is very patient, sympathetic, direct, and sincere. I haven't had any serious symptoms in years (thanks to him) but any time I do get a scare, he is always willing to schedule time to help me.

My son has been seeing Dr. Hoffman for over 10 years for his cleft lip and palate. He is the best Dr my son has ever had. He make said sure we all understand what's happening every step of the way and answers all questions we have.
