I haven't personally seen Dr. Hoffman yet, but I plan to - hopefully later this year. I have to prepare myself financially because I doubt if my insurance will cover treatment and, for me, it involves a flight to NYC, accommodations, etc.
I'd think seeing Dr. Hoffman would be a particularly good idea for folks who aren't responding to traditional meds. However, his site plainly states if you aren't willing to commit to some major lifestyle and dietary changes, you should probably look elsewhere.http://www.drhoffman.com/page.cfm/414#Q8
