"Not sure how there are so many 5 star reviews. We found him to be ineffectual. He simply told us to buy a book on depression and just kept saying the same things session after session. When we stated this wasn’t helping he seemed to give up, just stopped scheduling appointments. The expression one trick pony comes to mind. Very unprofessional. I really wonder if most of these reviews are real."

"Doctor Hoffman has helped me an incredible amount with my self image. I was anorexic since about 12 years old when my mother started making comments about how “big” I was for my age. Since then whenever I looked in the mirror I would see things that were not there. I am 5’10 and 130 pounds but felt obese. Doctor Hoffman helped me see reality again and whenever I feel my anorexia being triggered again I text him and he puts me right back on track, making me feel like I have someone on my side has made all the difference. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with these types of issues because I was really hopeless right before I gave Doctor Hoffman a chance and now my life and self confidence has been changed forever "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
