I have been seeing Dr. Hoffmann for years, and she is one of the finest, most knowledgeable doctors out there, period! I just happened to look her up and read the review from the lady with the kid and had to come to her defense. My kids (both grown) both went to Dr. Hoffmann, and I can tell you doesn't put up a namby-pamby front. The complainer was probably overly excited about the 'health emergency' of an ear infection, with the kid screaming and the mother upset. I have a hunch mom was traumatized because the doctor told her to calm down and shut up so she could treat the kid.
For someone who has been practicing for so long I would expect more! After seeing her in urgent care for my son who she roughly handled and misdiagnosed double ear infection. Forced antiobiotics sown his throat and he didn't even need them! My pediatrician confirmed that Monday that not only did he never have an ear infection and it was his throat and viral and had to run it's course hats why the Amox wasn't helping: it should have never been prescribed. My one year old is now traumatized as am I thanks to this Dr! I think she needs to work on getting her bedside manner back because she must of lost it while practicing all these years!
This is one sharp doctor! After being misdiagnosed by at least 4 other doctors, she found the problem and treated it. The thing is, she knew what it was right away when the other docs ordered me for test after test and STILL couldn't diagnose it. Anyway, I had a full recovery, and I will be forever grateful. She really impressed me.
