"My husband had open heart surgery at SMH. Dr. Hoffberger was recommended by two friends, one of whom had had same procedure. Given the magnitude of this surgery we were obviously concerned. When we left his office after the original consultation, I personally felt more confident than on my way in. Dr Hoffberger took the time to explain what was coming, what should be expected and how all was going to be done. I felt my husband was in good hands and i trusted this man with his life. Surgery went according to plan, and although recovery will be long, it is moving in the right direction So thankful for Dr Hoffberger and his team. Thank you and God continue to bless your hands and your heart."
"Dr Hoffberger is a caring extremely knowledgeable and efficient surgeon. He and his staff put patients at ease and don't rush through appointments I would refer family/friends without hesitation."
"Dr. Hoffberger performed minimally invasive surgery to replace my aortic valve on March 10th, 2021 at Sarasota Memorial. Everything went according to plan and I was out of bed within 24 hours of having the surgery and had no complications. It’s been 20 days since surgery and my recovery has been excellent. Prior to the surgery he spent as much time in his office as I needed explaining my options and his recommendations; and post-surgery he was attentive and followed up daily during my stay. His staff is outstanding, responsive, and caring. Not having to have the traditional surgical method with chest cracking saved me both pain and more recovery time. As an actual patient, I highly recommend Dr. Hoffberger for his expertise with minimally invasive surgery, his caring attitude and cutting-edge methods to deal with heart disease."
"My name is Greg and I am a Registered Nurse for close to 30 years. I had a CABG x4 in March of this year. I have had no complications at all and cannot express how grateful I am for the professional and compassionate care I received from Dr. Hoffberger and his wonderful staff. His assistant, Paula, walked me through every single pre-op visit and his PA and ARNP were very accommodating. Again, thank you for everything." G.R. 2020

"I underwent minimally invasive valve surgery at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, with Dr. Hoffberger performing the surgery. A little over a month later, I was able to walk at least a mile a day without trouble. I highly recommend Dr. Hoffberger. I am very pleased with his follow up to my recuperation." J.W. July, 2020 "...If you find yourself in need of a heart surgery procedure, don't delay. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment to see Dr. Jonathon Hoffberger to see if he can resolve your problem in a less invasive way. He and his staff are wonderful, as was the experience at Sarasota Memorial. You won't find better!"
"Dr. Hoffberger was a godsend...I delayed having my aortic valve replaced for 1 1/2 years...foolish me. My experience with the Dr. was very successful...he is a man with a confident, personable, compassionate and professional demeanor and an extremely skilled surgeon. I recommend him highly to anyone in need of his skill."
"I can't say enough great things about Dr Hoffberger and his staff. My husband had to have his aortic valve replaced just over a month ago and it went great. Dr. Hoffberger was so wonderful and talented. Husband was out of the hospital in 3 days. SMH is the best place to have this type of surgery and Dr Hoffberger is the best Doc to do it. Staff is very friendly and helpful answered all our questions. Great group of people. Thanks guys, for everything."
"Dr. Hoffberger did a mitral valve repair using minimally invasive surgery. His professional expertise and bedside manner were superb. Three weeks from surgery and I am out and about with no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Hoffberger and his staff for any heart procedures."
