I am so thankful to have Dr. Dudenhoefer as my care giver. He is always kind and considerate and explains everything concerning my health. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and always offers an explanation or a way to help. He is the best.

Very knowledgeable about my health and medical records. Has consistently picked up things in my lab results that led to further investigation or treatment for health issues I was unaware of. These were major issues that could have been very serious if not recognized and followed up.
