Eileen M. Hoffman, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

“Home Is Where The Heart Is.”

This is more than just a proverb; it forms the foundation of my internal medicine practice and personalized approach to healthcare. I focus on the whole person, not just a part, a piece or a problem. I reach out to you for wellness and will always be there for your care.

My goal is for my MDVIP-affiliated internal medicine practice to be your “Home for Health.” Health means treating your problems, but is also means nutritional education, promoting physical and mental well-being and coaching for healthier lifestyle choices. In addition to primary care, I have a special interest in women’s health and integrative medicine. I am conservative about using pharmaceuticals and educated in using nutraceuticals – getting and keeping cells healthy in a natural way before they become fixed in states that require medication.

My primary care practice, similar to a concierge medical practice, is located in Midtown, New York on Manhattan's East Side, but many patients come from all over New York City, Westchester County, Long Island and New Jersey. I am a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the NYU School of Medicine. My patients use hospital resources at the NYU Langone Medical Center.
