    We feel so blessed to have Dr Hoffman as our pediatrician, and OHSU for our medical home. Dr Hoffman is like a trusted and loved family member. We all take a deep breath once we see him. We feel he is always there to help us, and CAN help us. He is incredibly competent in reaching our son, and incredible in his doctor skills. He's the best!

    Dr. Hoffman is a very compassionate, caring, and skilled doctor. He makes both my daughters feel comfortable and at ease. He doesn't miss anything with them. He is also very informative and funny.

    we love Dr Hoffman, he's the only reason we drive all the way to Ohsu instead of a clinic closer to our house

    Dr. Hoffman took his time to explain to me so I can understand theco ferns for my son. On his day off he are sure to touch base with me about the care my son needed. He took time for us that he didn't need to if he didn't wantI appreciated that very much.

    I really can't express enough how wonderful Dr. Hoffman is. He is so calming, confident, helpful, accessible, you name it. he will always take time to see my boys if they have an appointment that isn't with him, but he happens to be in clinic. we really do feel like we are getting the best care in all of Portland by seeing Dr. Hoffman.

    Dr. Hoffman was the attending physician at the hospital when my twin sons were born. Both him and Dr. Mayme Marshall were just excellent: caring, compassionate, easy to talk to, answered questions very thoroughly. That is why I decided to establish care for my children at Doernbecher Children's Hospital. For this particular visit, one of the babies had a fever, and thankfully, it was nothing serious. Dr. Hoffman saw us within one hour of us havng called, and again was very patient and compassionate, and explained what my son had in a very easy to understand and reassuring way.

    I feel Dr Hoffman went above and beyond for this appointment. We were not originally scheduled with him, as it was an urgent appointment, but ran into each other in the lobby. After talking about what was going on and being very concerned he said he would see us that day. He spent a long time explaining everything and all the possible scenarios which was comforting and gave us confidence in what he was saying. He then followed up 3 times with phones calls with test results. It helped to ease the fears for this worried mom!
