“My goal is the patient’s recovery. Each and every patient is important to me. I provide exceptional care to help each patient return to an active, rewarding and pain-free life.”
Whether it’s returning an athlete to competition after a sports injury or relieving pain from arthritis in a grandmother, Dr. Soffer’s approach is to provide cutting-edge, state of the art orthopedic care to all patients no matter what their role in life.
