The symptoms that brought me into Dr. Hoffman’s office were as a result of a brain injury that I sustained in a motor vehicle accident. I was suffering from memory loss, both long term and short term. As well, I was easily frustrated, and had a short temper.

Since coming into see Dr. Hoffman, my memory of my childhood is greatly improved, as well as my short term memory. I have also noticed changes in my personal life, my hockey performance has improved, I am more patient with mishaps, which has improved my abilities at work, and relationships with my coworkers.
