Ratings for Dr. Charles Hoffe
Dr. Hoffe has always been helpful, careful, and open. I had an unknown medical condition that no doctor could diagnose for over two years. He was humble enough to recognize my father's (not a doctor) diagnosis and gave me the referrals I needed to get the help I needed. You don't often find a doctor who is both knowledgable and humble. He is an excellent and sympathetic Christian and doctor. We are very blessed to have him as both a doctor in and a member of our community. He truly takes the time and thought required for each one of his patients.
Unfortunately, Dr. Hoffe's religion seems to affect his medical practice. For example, he turns away teenage patients seeking birth control, advising them to practice abstinence instead. I've heard that he will only prescribe copper IUDs after quite an argument, and he doesn't offer standard genetic screening to pregnant patients (or dismisses the option brusquely as "that's just for women who get abortions."). Know your options when you see him and don't let his religion dissuade you from something you want.
I credit Dr. Hoffe with saving my leg when it was severely broken and became infected. It was his concern and expert attention that healed my leg. I have dealt with him many times over the years and he is a true treasure of this community and we are very fortunate to have him as Lytton's doctor. His receptionist, Joan, has always acted towards us in the most professional, respectful and helpful manner and is also a treasure of this community.
He came in late from lunch, saw a patient in the bed beside us (another person who fell), and then disappeared. After an hour (no kidding!) (the kids were there an hour and a half) a nurse came in and we asked what happened to the doctor? She said he went to do clinic duties and he would be awhile. I told her if he didn't think my son was serious enough to see while he was standing a foot away from us then we were leaving. I'm still surprised that the doctor couldn't take 2 seconds to say "I'm heading to the clinic, back in a bit" or "He's not serious make an appt."
