Q&A with Dr. Hoffenbacker
What are you most passionate about professionally? Personally?
I am passionate about treating patients from all different backgrounds with different medical needs. My brother died of Colon cancer at 35 and when they linked it to diet and lifestyle I realized how important what we do is to the population. I very much enjoy working through GI dysfunction cases, because the need for that intervention is very important.
What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?
I would treat patient’s using chiropractic and nutritional medicine even if I didn’t get paid. I have taught classes at the local community colleges for free to spread awareness for full body health/functional medicine. Its very important to me that patients get the education they need to care for themselves and their families; so they feel comfortable they are making the best decisions on their health.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
I love music to my core. I couldn’t live without music. It is one thing that has the ability to remove negative stressors out of my life and really help me focus on my tasks at hand. I play the guitar when I need a stress release.
What’s the biggest proof you’re good at what you do?
Professionally, I believe the compliments from patients on my bedside manner and caring nature show I truly care about my job and the community. I have not advertised at all, and my patient’s word of mouth is what built my practice over the years. I treat not only one family member, patients trust me to treat their whole family. That to me is very important when treating patients, that they trust me with their whole family health.
How long have you been working in your field?
I have been treating patients since 2016 both with chiropractic and nutritional care. I have become very passionate about functional medicine more and more due to its complex nature.
What’s your biggest accomplishment?
I came from a family where no one had graduated college. I was pushed by my oldest brother to go to college and make something of myself. I left for college and was the first one in my family to not only graduate college but to receive my doctorate.
What are you complimented most in your work?
Throughout my professional career the most complimented aspect of my practice is my compassion and understanding of my patients goals and conditions. I don’t always know all the answers and most of the time I don’t, but honesty and my ability to find the answer is what they appreciate most.
Who is your ideal client and why should they connect with you?
I enjoy working with patient’s that are ready to change and figure out their personal health. I enjoy educating patients, but I also like patients who can educate me. I believe to be in good health it’s a team effort. I have always made the appropriate referral because their health is the most important to me. Aligned Modern Health is that company that will create a family atmosphere for me, and patients should know we are a team in their health and will do what’s right to help them.
Do you have any family members or pets to include in your bio?
My wife Hillary Hoffenbacker. I have two boys keeping me busy. Their names are Brooks and Sawyer Hoffenbacker.
