Specialties

Dr. Kent S Hoffman has the following 2 specialties

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Personal touch

I have been coming to Dr. Hoffman since 1995 when I first retired from the Navy. He is the most personable physician I have ever been to, and I have been to a few. He remembers personal information about me and always takes time to talk to me on more personal level. His diagnosis for my several visits to him have always been spot on, even when he has had to refer me to a specialist. I typically hate going to the doctor because of the typical wait time, but I am quicker to go the doctor because of him. Brooke is excellent, also, when it comes to patient interaction. She remembers me when I call, even if it has been some time since my last contact.

A guiding light during a dark time.

I have been going to Dr. Hoffman for 6 months now for opioid addiction and I could not have chosen a better doctor to help me through this extremely difficult time in my life. I drive nearly 60 miles to go to his practice because he has proven to be worth it with all the progress ive made with him. He has helped my family understand what this horrible disease does and how to handle different stages of it with me. Just last week I had a problem with a pharmacy on a Sunday so I called the office and it transfered me to his personal cell phone, not even 5 minutes later he returned my call. He makes you feel comfortable and he really does care. I highly recommend Dr. Hoffman to anyone suffering addiction because without him I dont think I would be sober today!

a real person with real insight

My family has been seeing Dr. Hoffman since we moved to FL in 1995. He has offered consistently excellent, empathetic care. When he moved offices, I briefly went to the Pegasus Health Clinic because it's close to my job. That was a mistake. Now I'm back, getting the personal attention that makes so much of a difference. I should also note that he has a great sense of humor that really helped, especially when my daughters were teenagers.
