Back in 1997 I met Dr. Hoffman at a time when I was graduating high school and getting ready for college. At that time of my life, talking to a doctor about anything was the last thing I wanted to do- until I met Dr. Hoffman. Rather than running in to the room- already with a diagnosis, he walked in SHOOK MY HAND and introduced himself. Then he showed and has always shown genuine interest in who I am, what I have been experiencing (sickness, stress, etc) and how to help. Dr. Hoffman has helped me transition into an adult by not only helping me when I am ill, but guiding me down a path for a healthy lifestyle. I truly feel blessed to have ever met him, and proud to call him my doctor.\r
Last night I found something that really alarmed myself, and my long term girlfriend. My family, having a long history with cancer, has made it clear how important it is to get things checked out as soon as I notice them. Today I sit here, terrified. But tomorrow I look forward to driving to Arlington to the one person I know will always shoot me straight, tell the truth, and make sure I am taken care of. Most likely the outcome will be nothing- but no matter what, Dr. Hoffman is truly one in a million, and I can't think of a better person to talk about my personal well being.\r
I wish I could spell it out in the sky so everyone could understand- to be able to openly and honetsly discuss concerns with a doctor is truly priceless- Dr. Hoffman is truly a stand out in his field- and the only person I will trust myself and my family with- for the rest of my life.\r
