    How was your appointment with Dr. Hoffman?

    May 20, 2017
    Dr. Hoffman is awesome. Went to him for a hernia surgery after seeing his reviews--he is incredibly kind/caring, helpful, and on top of things. He truly cares about his patients. I never write reviews but felt compelled to after my experience with him. Truly a brilliant and caring doctor with excellent bedside manner and showed a true concern for my health/labs that went beyond my hernia repair and referred me to a top primary care physician.
