Have you seen Dr. Karl Hofammann?

June 15th, 2013Great Doctor!
I saw Dr. Hofammann at his St Vincent's East office. The office staff was prompt and courteous . His office was full and I anticipated a long wait but he was on time and I really appreciated it. He was very focused on my injury and not all that chatty but he diagnosed me and his diagnosis was spot on, unlike my previous doctor. I am well now after a surgery and I thank Dr. Hofammann.
September 10th, 2012THOROUGHLY DISGUSTED PATIENT
I recently visited Dr. Hoffammann's Talladega, AL office to get my left knee MRI results. Dr. told me they MRI was clear, and after asking him if it was possible that I might have developed arthiritis, he told me that it was more likely due to the fact that I am overweight. Okay, I can accept that, and I have been working with my primary physician on my weight issue already. Then he goes on to refer to me as "a ton of logs being pulled by a half ton truck"! Dr. Hoffammann's bedside manner is all but nonexistent! I am assuming that he skimmed right over my registration papers, which clearly state that I have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, have severe anxiety, et cetera. I held my composure and politely thanked him and told him that no, I would not like for him to set me up for physical therapy and I would continue to deal with the pain of my knees - the one discussed, I had surgery on 10 years ago - with my primary care physician. Then I had a panic attack when I reached my car and cried my eyes out. THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP, DR. OBLIVIOUS TO YOUR PATIENTS' FEELINGS!
October 14th, 2010His bark is worse than his bite! Awesome surgeon!
I had heard some not so good things about Dr Hofammann's "bedside manner" so I was hesitant to go to him when I needed knee surgery. He was actually just a "second opinion" that my insurance required before they would pay for my surgery so I really didn't go in having any idea that I would use him! The first thing that I noticed was how his nurses treated him. They loved him! And, his office manager, Patsy had moved heaven and earth to get a time where I could come in without losing a vacation day at work. He is BIG! And GRUFF! But he is also caring and kind and as I sat in the waiting room with children, oldsters and patients my age, I started listening to them talk about him. They all loved him and laughed about his "bark". One older lady with a heavier frame told me that he said to her in reference to her knees, "You've got a Cadillac body on a Volkswagen chassis!" He had replaced both her knees and she was very pleased with him and his surgery. I changed doctors after seeing him and wanted to write this because he is the best doctor I have ever had! He is a diamond in the rough! Thank you Dr Hofammann and Patsy for everything you have done for me.
