WORST M.D.

First of all I had gestational diabetes while pregnant with my son, Sawyer. Most gestational moms do not go past 38-39 weeks. Not me, I had to go 41 weeks, Thanks to doctor Hoffman. Every week I come in and every week he says no harm in going another week. My last ultra sound was at 39 1/2 weeks and my child was already 9 lbs. I was huge, I was uncomfortable and so was my child. Finally after I was told they were going to induce me, my husband and I make the drive to carthage just to get a phone call from the maternity ward stating that there wasn't room and it was not that big of a deal to wait another day. (I AM SCARED I AM HUGE AND I AM A BIG DEALM THANK YOU VERY MUCH) So we turned around and went home.
Came back to the hospital at 8 a.m Saturday June 9th, 2012. Hoffman was never around!!! EVER! He maybe saw me 3 times in the 40 hours I was in the hospital room before he was called at midnight on sunday june 10th. My sons BPM was at a 200!!!!!!!!!! I had contracted a infection from sitting in my own filth (nurses, one being pregnant herself, name was Jordan) no one did anything! The doctor was "at home gardening and didn't want to be called until I was dilated to a 9!!!!!!!!" And by the way, I was the ONLY ONE IN LABOR at the time. These people were too busy on their phones to even do their job. Finally the "Doctor" came into my room at 2 a.m to take me in for an emergency c- section. Un real. My son could have died. He was born 9.6 Ounces, and 21 1/2 long. Beautiful.
THANK GOD I MOVED MY FAMILY HOME TO OREGON and thanks to the wonderful people at carthage area hospital and the wonderful doctor I will probably never have another child again, fear. That place and that doctor is A JOKE. I wouldn't recommend him or that place to my worst enemy.

I DO NOT recommend Dr Hoffman at all. I would highly recommend any of the other doctors in the building, they've been great!
Dr Hoffman has seen me several times, as has the other OBs in the office -they were all on the same page with treating me except Dr Hoffman. I have problems with pre-term labor contractions, I did with my first pregnancy and with this second pregnancy. He never remembered me from each time seeing me, which at first I didn't think was a big deal until I had to be seen frequently and ALL the nurses even knew me by first name along with the other doctors. He also blamed me being "dehydrated" every time he saw me when I was contracting closer than 4 mins apart, even though my samples were clear as water and the nurses were always impressed with the fact I took hydration very seriously. Second time out of the three I had to be admitted overnight with medication to slow my contractions, He checked my cervix then and said I was a 3 to 4 cm dilated. Within the next 3 weeks two other doctors in the same office had to check me at different times due to my contractions (one hospital stay, other in office visit) both saying I was a 4 cm dilated. In my last office visit, I told the nurse I felt safer being checked because of the obvious contractions along with extreme fatigue the last two days and obvious pressure issues (38 weeks and 2 days pregnant at this appt). Dr Hoffman came in and introduced himself like we had never met to me and my husband, who thankfully is always at my appointments, and went on to say that he didn't normally check women after 35 weeks cause he felt is caused unnecessary labor issues with being induced and then resulting in c-section for women but since I had wanted he would today. (I thought this was a little off in explanation as did my husband) He called the nurse in the room while he checked me and then said "I'd say your about a 2 today"... while the nurse helped me up I asked if he was sure and I stated that I didn't think you could go BACK in dilation and I've been a 4 cm for 3 weeks now. He looked at my chart at who the last that checked me was and said "Niki checked you last. She probably stripped your membranes when she did that." I told him I didn't understand because Dr Dacosta also agreed as did Dr Hoffman 3 weeks ago that I was a 4 cm already. He then said "I didn't go all the way in because I didn't want to risk stripping your membrane." I was speechless, as was my husband. The Dr put my paper to leave on the desk and said to come back in a week if I didn't deliver before and walked out. Why would an OBGYN check if he wasn't going to do it right?! I will not allow this Dr to touch me or treat me ever again. I'm going to find out what else other than writing this review can be done, no woman should have to feel like this so please be warned!

Dr Hoffman is a rude chop-shop doctor. He tried to tell me things about my high risk pregnancy that were lies and half-truths because he doesn't respect women or their ability to be intelligent. He is wicked condescending and will try to make life-choices for you, and will NEVER paint the whole picture or let you ask questions.

He's so pushy he's a malpractice waiting to happen.

I left and took my pregnancy to a doctor who could read my file before seeing me and retain information I gave them while respecting me as a human being and not just a vessel.

Terrible Dr. Does not listen to you or even review chart. Very condescending. Seen me several times before birth and then treated me in the hospital for c-section complications. When I went back for recheck after hospitalization a week later he came in the room and shook my hand and introduced himself like we had never met. Had to go back to hospital for same issues 2 weeks later. Same treatment. When I went for recheck he seemed out of the loop again and did not examine me or even really review the record. did not address any of my concerns or schedule any testing to make sure issues were resolved. He wanted to place an IUD a week after being treated a second time for endometritis. Pharmacist gave me information this should not be done for atleast 3 months after issue is resolved or I could have serious complications. Dr Hofman seemed frustrated that I wanted to wait several months before placing the IUD. i could keep going........ Be careful- find a dr that listens and is truly concerned with your well-being!

Dr. Hoffman treated me with respect and dignity. When I called concerned he always reassured me everything was ok. Maybe the other reviewers had a bad experience.....but everyone deserves a chance. In my own opinion, Dr. Hoffman, Dr. DaCosta, and Dr Ginyard were all good obgyns. They are matter of fact drs and try to do things as naturally as possible. They mean well and I would definitely recommend them. :)

Dr. Hoffman is not all that bad as you say. He did wonders for me when he delivered my daughter and is doing wonderfully again with this baby I am about to have. I dont know where you get that his licence or whatever is outdated one bit.

This is the WORST doctor I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! He made me feel like I was a waste of time and basically said he was too busy to answer our questions. He is very rude and doesn't care if he hurts your feelings. RUN from this doctor FAST!

We had a horrible experience with Dr. Hoffman! My daughter in law had a baby under his "care" last year and I was there through it all. He is rude and inconsiderate and let her labor for over 36 hours before finally deciding to give her a C-Section. His medical practices are outdated and even dangerous, according to his own nurses! Stay far away from this doctor.

if u have a choice i suggest not using Dr Hoffman. not only is he rude- but he also doesn't not listen to your needs as a patient . he feels he is the Dr and u are treated as an ignorant cow. I over heard this dr talking down about me as he read my chart to the nurse before entering the room. He told the nurse thay i was lying about my side affects from a previous birth control. Then when i asked his suggestions on current birth control- he said i need to hurry and make a choice because he had other patients to see. I was very disappointed bc i have used this facilities Dr's before for my previous pregnancy and referred many friends here.I simply loved all the other Dr's in the practice such as Dr Da Costa and Dr Forbes - Dr Hoffman however just seemed as if he didn't even fit in the practice. (Simply put -he is an ass) The staff is polite and very helpful and it is ashame. I have never been treated this way as a patient by a Dr and will not be returning to this facility for care.
