How I Practice Sports Medicine
As an avid weightlifter, mountain biker and swimmer, Dr. Hoffman can commiserate with injuries causing setbacks to training. Whether you’ve just injured yourself at the gym or you’ve had a painful joint for a few months now, Dr. Hoffman can help to diagnose and treat you getting you back to your best self.
Every sports medicine injury consultation with Dr. Hoffman includes a musculoskeletal ultrasound examination of the affected joint or muscle*. The initial consultation also includes an initial phone consultation to determine the nature of your injury and whether an xray will be needed prior to coming in.
Based upon the findings from the physical examination and diagnostic studies, you and Dr. Hoffman will then discuss the best options for getting you back into the activities you love, and at the level you were at prior to injury.
This sports medicine practice is different in that it is concierge style. What does that mean for you as a patient? One thing it means is that you’ll get 30 to 45 minutes face to face with Dr. Hoffman on your initial visit compared to the typical 5-10 minutes at a traditional practice. It also means that we include the diagnostic ultrasound exam with your initial visit. Beyond that, in this day of high deductible insurance plans, it often means you’ll spend less money out of pocket than you would at a traditional practice.

How We Handle Insurance
Additional Details: Getting the middle man of insurance out of the equation allows Dr. Hoffman to provide the optimal patient care without the restraints that insurance places on the physician-patient relationship. As such, we do not bill any insurers for our services. Dr. Hoffman does not fill out paperwork for insurance companies, nor does he complete worker’s compensation paperwork or disability paperwork. For the latter, please see your primary care physician. Upon request we can provide diagnostic codes that allow you to submit claims for reimbursement. Diagnostic testing may be submitted to your insurance, or you may opt for reasonable cash pay options through our partners.
