    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.
