Testimonials from patients of Dr. Hochwalt
Dr. Hochwalt has been my Dr. for about 30 years. I can’t say enough about the excellent care he has provided to me. He is not only a wonderful Dr. but a wonderful human being. He actually cares about his patients and shows it. I pray that he continues to do so for a very long time. Thank you so very much, Dr. Hochwalt.
Dr. Hochwalt has been my physician for over 20 years. When he joined MDVIP, I came with him to the program. I did that because he has a high "EQ" and really understands that sometimes, I need confirmation that nothing is wrong. I really appreciate that about him - and in one big instance, it made a big difference in a diagnosis for me. Now, I live overseas but I continue my… See more

He cared for my late husband as well as being a support for me at this difficult time. He made the transition to MDVIP and I decided to follow him in his transition. My new life has had many challenges… See more
Whenever something odd happens, like a sudden fall while dog walking last December, Dr. Hochwalt is there for me through a simple phone call. The fall happened while his office was particularly overwhelmed and he still offered straightforward advice, found a medical facility and orthopedic doctor close to where I'm now living (which is an area that isn't familiar to him).

Since 1991 I have been a patient of Dr. Hochwalt which, I am fairly confident, makes me one of his oldest patients. Throughout the years I have had numerous maladies which the good Doctor Hochwalt cured with ease; however, there have been a couple of issues, which are not necessary to describe in detail, except to say that without him I would not be here to say, "Thank you."
Jim and I go back to the mid 90’s. The comfort of knowing he’s “taking care” of me ( and my wife) goes beyond our medical needs. His forward look into our health In the future - creates a trusted relationship that is rare. Like a friend who’s always looking out for you! Thanks.
