Dr. Lloyd Hoffman, is a kind, understanding compassionate man. After asking a few specific questions about me, he understood the importance of the procedure for me. What it was doing to me emotionally along with my sense of self. When heexplained what he would be doing in the procedure and why, I wept. He was the first plastic surgeon who actually understood me beyond the physical. I know the upcoming surgery will be excellent!
