Positive Comments

They present in a way that makes you feel that they know what they are doing.

Negative Comments

Staff was friendly and were very prompt on their part, however the PA and Doctor Hoffberg took more than 2 hours to see me and please understand... I was his 2nd appointment for the day!!After waiting 2 hours to see the doctor, I had my arms pulled (literally he just pulled my arms) and was diagnosed immediately... that is within less than 3 minutes!!! The initial issues that I was suffering from were completely ignored and when I tried to communicate them, I felt like I was being challenged as if the doctor knew everything and that I knew completely nothing about my own body. I honestly felt like I was being interrogated from the start and that whatever I communicated to the doctor didnt matter. Dr. Hoffberg has very attractive credentials and seems like he knows his practice, but I honestly believe he needs to pay attention to his patients needs rather than his wants and glory.

"you have to continually come back, expecially after the meds he give you, you become addicted to"
been patient 6yrs, started off helpful, ended up still seeing him on lots of strong drugs and being treated super, super poorly

Negative Comments

Started with just neck problem, as time went by, severe back and knee problems arose. received same treatment. Higher dose of meds, no treatment. Now large problems because of the large dose of meds and he suggest seeing another dr. or going withdraw, which puts me back to unbearable pain to live with. came to him because pain was unbearable at that point with more problems suggest withdraw.

General Comments

Started out very concerned and helpful, till the state of MD, came to his office for an audit. Since that point my visits and life have been hell. I am on too much meds to withdraw from will die, do to uncontrollable blood pressure and too much pain to go thru withdraw.
