- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

My husband and I both found Dr. Hoffmann and the P.A. (Jenn) to be extremly knowledgable, thorough, and compassionate. My husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor and the doctor was very helpful throughout our entire ordeal as well as providing me with routine medical care and advising me on a great ENT specialist office for voice box surgey. Love this Doctor and the P.A. too!
One of the most inept medical offices I have ever had to deal with. Impossible to leave a message during business hours as their phone is constantly busy. Staff is routinely rude, condescending and unhelpful when you do speak with them. Very unprofessional onsite atmosphere, including behavior of other patients, several of whom felt compelled to tell me what the sign-in procedure is when I arrived for appointments--assuming that I had never signed in for anything before, I suppose. Although the office/practice didn't have time to return my calls when I was a patient, they did have time to send a letter stating that they had terminated its services to me. Two months later, I received an automated phone message advising me that I had an appointment, which I had to call and cancel to avoid a no-show. Truly ridiculous.
