Everyone at this office is very pleasant, while also being very thorough and efficient. This is a rare combination thesedays. I’ve been to a few other dermatologists in the area, but Dr. Hoffman and his assistant Mike gave a much more comprehensive examination than the others did. They were also transparent about their diagnosis and patient in answering my questions. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended.

The nurse who took all my details and took photographs of the areas of concern was kind, friendly and extremely helpful.Dr. Hoffman was personable and efficient: he answered my questions, performed the procedure I needed, and provided me with information about something I was considering. It was an overall positive experience and I will certainly go back if I need more dermatology help.

The nurse/assistant who saw me first was excellent - knowledgable, friendly, and incredibly helpful. Did 80% of the work in pointing me in the right direction. The doctor on the other hand rushed in, didn't seem mentally present, and rushed out, as if I was the 40th patient with the same problem he saw that day. I could barely get a single word in.

He completely ignored what I tried to explain was an issue, which later caused me serious health problems. I was in and out of his office in 5 minutes, when it really should have been at least 30 min considering the issues. He was rude, condescending, and made me uncomfortable.

Finally a dermatologist that cares! After 17 years in the Bay Area trying different dermatologists to treat acne, Dr. Hoffman came up with the correct solution. I wish I had visited him sooner. This guy is knowledgeable and even gave me some free samples.
