      Dismissive of pain and overall well-being, made it a point to constantly point out that the patient was obese, other providers never do that, as I'm clearly aware of it.

      Dr Hoffman was incredible. He explained endo in detail and provided me different choices. He was patient and I did not feel hurried. He spent a lot of time and made sure all my questions were answered. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with endometriosis.

      First time seeing this provider - my normal one is on leave. He was very dismissive of my concerns and didn't even touch me - he sat across the room from me. I wasn't due for a pap, but he didn't do a pelvic or breast exam.

      Provider continued to mumble and talk softly after I explained that I was having trouble hearing. He neglected to tell me the side effects of the medication he prescribed even when I asked. I suffered for 2 weeks.

      Dr Hoffman was easy to talk to, listened to me, answered my questions, and didn't pressure me into making an immediate decision about scheduling surgery.

      Couldn't have asked for a better experience with dr. Hoffman. Will be highly likely to recommend him he was a very knowledgeable and explained things very well.

      I felt so listened to and understood during my appointment. Even though Dr. Hoffman explained the risks of the procedure I wanted to me, at no point did it feel like he was trying to talk me out of it. He came across as very knowledgeable and very caring.

      Dr. Hoffman was in the room with me less than 5 minutes total. As I was reading my After Visit Summary it stated he spent 25-29 with me. Which is not accurate. I felt like he was rushing me out,

      Dr Hoffman listened to my concerns about why I wanted the lump removed, took my angst into consideration, and decided to move ahead with removal. He's an intelligent, humanitarian doctor.
