Patient reviews for Dr. Thomas Hoffman
This was great. Both my nurse and the doctor were fantastic. Thoughtful, quick, thorough. Thanks!
Everyone at this office is very pleasant, while also being very thorough and efficient. This is a rare combination these days. 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.
The doctor was very nice and listen well to my concerns.
Great doctor and staff, pleasant experience!
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.
Was taken before my appointment time and the nurse as well as Dr. Hoffman was nice and treated me right away.
INcredibly insightful and full of expertise.
Quick & Easy. Very straight forward and he did not try to push any products on me. I am very pleased and am already seeing results. Thank you.
