    Dr. Hoffman is an amazing and excellent doctor. He listens and cares deeply not just for his patients but the parents as well. He gives us as much time needed to check on our child, and explain to us his thoughts. He is compassionate..and he makes you feel understood. He never reprimands and always seem to note the diversity in thoughts, beliefs and culture of each of his patients.

    Dr. Hoffman is awesome. He is very accomodating. He engages the kids, he engages myself. He asks me feelings I'm concerned about in terms of parenting as well as the kid's health is always reminding about carseats and home features for safety like windows guns CO2 detectors all those type of things and just super personable and I like him.
