    Dr. Hoffman is excellent. He is experienced. He is consulted by many other providers when it comes to complicated strabismus procedures. He totally fixed my eyes and they are now straight. This change is life altering. Go see him!!

    Our son has been seeing Dr. Hoffman since he was a baby. Hes now 18 years old, and weve never found anyone who could so quickly and accurately figure out his eyeglass prescription with a little dude is non-verbal and unable to follow commands. This practice is the best!

    We love Dr. Hoffman! He took such good care of our little one before, during, and after surgery. He knows what he's doing. Putting your baby through surgery is scary but his professionalism and knowledge made it a little easier.
