"Dr. Hochster epitomizes what every health care provider should strive to be. Caring, responsive, competent, humble and compassionate . I cannot recommend him enough. The office staff is just an added bonus. "

"Motivation to diagnose is obviously driven by potential revenue. Office practices predatory billing, be sure to speak with your insurance company before paying any bill from his practice. "

"This doctor is rude and very uncompassionate. He argues with you when you request a simple exam and pushes you off to a specialist without examination. Doctors like him is the prime reason our community suffer the way we do when it comes to equal medical care!"

"Dr. Hochster is very competent and caring. My first interaction with him was in the 90's and I was very impressed with the treatment to help with sciatica. He has been my PCP for over 15 years."

"Would give less than 1 star if I could, this doctor is a complete and utter jerk. Rude beyond belief and should not be practicing anymore as he is a crotchety rude old man. Thinks he is the center of the universe and everyone else should just bend the rules for him and his pompous attitude. Do yourself a favor and go see a doctor with actual compassion for his patients, as this doctor is clearly has none. "

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.
