Dr. Hoffman’s the Best!
“ Just wanted to let you know that once again, Dr. Hoffman and Coordinated Health have reconfirmed to me, that they are the absolute best in orthopedic surgery on so many levels!  Manny had torn bicep surgery last Tuesday, and is doing extremely well... I know I've told you this before, but, honestly - Dr. Jim Hoffman is a true asset to Coordinated Health...  I will continue to be CH's cheerleader! ”

Dr. Hoffman is the “Shoulder Man”
“ Dr. James Hoffman spends as much time as I need, talking to me and making me comfortable. He completely explains everything, including showing x-rays and MRI results. He is called "The Shoulder Man" by the nurses and techs at Lehigh Valley Muhlenberg.  I have complete confidence in Dr. Hoffman and will recommend him to anyone looking for a "Shoulder Man". ”

Dr. Hoffman Accepts Nothing Less Than Perfect
“ Dr. Hoffman has restored the use and comfort of my right upper torso and shoulder/arm through rotator cuff surgery... That was 2 years ago. I went to him immediately when I heard and felt my left shoulder go out. I have so much trust in Dr. Hoffman who shows me that nothing less than perfect is acceptible. I Love Coordinated Health and am sad everyone doesn't go there. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my positive feedback and enthusiasm! ”

Knee relief
“ Dr. Hoffman has treated my right knee for meniscus tear and now osteoarthritis. He promised I would walk out from the meniscus repair surgery on my own. I didn't believe him but most certainly should have. That surgery was approximately 7 years ago. Two years ago the same knee began to give me trouble. He diagnosed and gave me 3 injections in that knee and I was pain-free for almost 2 years. We've started on another course of those injections. Dr. Hoffman has treated me with the utmost respect and care. I can say that my referral to him was the best referral I've ever had. Thank you Dr. Hoffman. ”

Great surgeon and doctor
“ I've used Dr. Hoffman for a variety of ailments and injuries over the years. Shoulder surgery, finger surgery, removal of a cyst on the wrist and PRP therapy for a hamstring injury. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and accessible. He's solution-oriented and takes the time to understand the patient needs. He's also very progressive with treatment. The PRP therapy was a great solution for an old running injury that did not require traditional surgery. I would (and have) recommend Dr. James Hoffman for any orthopedic needs. ”
