Dr. Hoffman was great to diagnose the problem. I had been to another ENT who did and was trying to order needless tests that had nothing to do with my problem! This was a very costly mistake. Dr. Hoffman even referred my to another surgeon, who tried a less invasive procedure to see if it would work. I knew there was a chance it wouldn’t, which, unfortunately, it didn’t. Then, Dr. Hoffman removed the gland completely (which he did give me the option to do originally, but I opted to try the other first). He said it would not cause me problems afterwards, and he was right! After a year of pain off and on, I was pain free immediately after the initial surgery recovery period. He was also VERY careful to leave a minimal scar. I would highly recommend him!
