Get to know Psychiatrist Dr. Michael A. Hoffman, who serves patients in Staunton, Virginia.

New York City, Sep 29, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Dr. Hoffman is a trusted psychiatrist specializing in psychopharmacologic consultation, holistic medicine, chronic pain management, and forensic evaluation. Having been practicing in Staunton, Virginia since 1983, he is the Medical Director of Associated Mental Health Professionals, Inc.

As such, he works with children, adolescents and adults in an office setting and strives to provide state-of-the-art psychiatric, neurologic, and holistic consultation, evaluation, and treatment. He uses a comprehensive approach that focuses on achieving and maintaining a patient's optimal mental, emotional, and physical well-being. 

"Through the use of a detailed personal history, neuro-endocrine assessment, and nutritional evaluation, the patient and I identify problem areas. I use a holistic "approach" to treat the whole patient with medication, nutritional supplements, and other therapeutic interventions as indicated" expressed the doctor. 

Delivering therapeutic care, Dr. Hoffman is a firm believer that mental illness is a symptom of underlying medical problems that involve imbalances in the neurochemistry of the brain, as well as hormone, endocrine, and nutritional deficiencies. He limits his practice to providing outpatient service and forensic evaluation while maintaining cooperative relationships with inpatient services that are available in the surrounding area.

Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Hoffman received his medical degree from Rush Medical College. He did most of his residency at Rush Presyberian - St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago, and completed his training at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville.  

Thereafter, he worked as the Director of Psychiatric Services at the Rockbridge Mental Health Clinic in Lexington, Virginia from 1983 to 1985, and as the Medical Director of Inpatient Psychiatric Services at Augusta Health in Fishersville, Virginia (formerly King's Daughters Hospital) from 1983 until his retirement from inpatient practice in 1998.  

With over four decades of experience in his field, Dr. Hoffman is board-certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to promoting high-quality patient care for the public through the initial and continuing certification of psychiatrists and neurologists. He is also board-certified in integrative holistic medicine.

Psychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders. These include various maladaptations related to mood, behavior, cognition, and perceptions. Psychiatrists evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients with mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. They conduct thorough psychiatric evaluations, develop treatment plans, prescribe medication, and evaluate treatment results.

Oct 25, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday.

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Oct 25, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Oct 25, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

Isaiah Stewart scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Quade Green added 14 points and Washington rebounded from a loss to open conference play with a 72-40 romp over Southern California on Sunday night. Stewart was again dominant on the interior despite sitting the final 9 minutes of the first half with foul trouble. The freshman post was 6-of-12 shooting and had two of Washington’s 12 blocked shots. Fellow freshman Jaden McDaniels added 11 points despite an off...
