    How was your appointment with Dr. Hoekel?

    Apr 25, 2019
    Dr. Hoekel is an amazing doctor. My daughter has been a patient of his since she was under 1 month old. She is now almost 9. I would recommend him unequivocally. He takes the time to talk to you in manner you can understand but not talking down to you. He makes sure to take the time to answer all of your questions honestly and with no BS. He takes the time to make sure your child understands what he is doing and what he is going to do. He takes the time to make sure that he is very thorough in his examinations. All while he is being very gentle in the manner he does the exam. He also charts extremely well or has a great memory because he remember details about his patients that make them feel like they are just a random patient but someone he cares about. The fact he takes the time to these things is what sets him apart from other doctors. On top of everything Dr.Hoekel is very intelligent.
