Ratings for Dr. Eugene J. Hoffman
Dr. Hoffman has a really good personality and makes you feel comfortable, but his schedule is very complicated because of it's lack of flexability.If I want to make an appt. I have to wait till he is taking "routine visits". He delivered my second son,I didn't take a lamaze class nor was I up to date on birthing knowledge,therfore was given false info and tricked into having a c-section. I only wanted to do a c-section if I had no other options and he led me to believe just that. Best advice I could give is know your stuff (do your on research before), and get a 2nd opnion if your still unsure!!
I WAS a patient of Dr. Hoffman's for approximately 22 years. I had undergone two surgeries by Dr .Hoffman. I was having medical problems and attempted to see Dr. Hoffman. Because of a small balance, which was not paid by my health insurance and which I stated I would pay before seeing him, HE refused to see me. I had to see another physician who performed surgery on me within the month due to the difficulties. I felt that Dr. Hoffman did not care about me, his patient, and that he only cared about HIS pocket. I know that these are hard times, but I did and do have health insurance that would have covered my medical expenses and Dr. Hoffman has lost sight of his patients. I feel he just threw me away when I needed him the most. He did this even with the knowledge that I was having medical problems and willing to pay the past balance and the current fee in cash (even though I had health insurance). NOT A GOOD DOCTOR. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO A FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND.
I loved Dr. Hoffman too...he has wonderful bedside manners,but when I was pregnant with my second child..I had many serious medical problems with that pregnancy. He knew I had all the problems and still put me in a hospital that did not have intensive care for the mom. They had to make shift a intensive care for me. My baby died...which was not his fault at all. But I feel if he would have done alot of things differently...I would have been spared alot of pain and could have spent the hours she was alive with her. I know we are all human and I know he did not do anything intentionally to hurt us...I forgive him.
