“. . . My experience was one of the most unbelievable any one could imagine. On October 12, 2014, I had a heart attack, was taken to the hospital and had a code blue. Then, after surviving that, I met a wonderful doctor who was caring, considerate and advised me of the need for my second open heart surgery. Dr. Hoffberger performed a flawless surgery, repairing one valve, replacing another and a double bypass. With his unbelievable skills, [Dr. Hoffberger] got me through the operation without any complications. His bedside manner is outstanding, and his personality is just wonderful. He is a master surgeon and an outstanding person. I would recommend him without reservation for anyone needing open heart surgery.”
