Retirement Announcement

 

To My Patients:

I have been at Southdale Pediatrics more than 24 years---long enough to see a whole generation of patients grow up and move on to have their own families.  Each and every one of you has a special place in my heart and I am grateful that you have allowed me to be a part of your lives.  I am constantly reminded of those moments, both joyful and difficult, when you have placed your trust in me.  I have done all I can to deserve that trust.

There comes a time, though, as difficult as it is, to say goodbye.  As of January 1st 2013, I will be retiring, and moving on to the next chapter of my life.  You will not be forgotten.  I have saved so many notes and pictures from you and I know they will fill me with many happy memories.

Fortunately, I will be leaving you in good hands.  My colleagues at Southdale Pediatrics are the most experienced, compassionate pediatricians you can find.  I have been blessed to be a part of this group and I am confident that I am leaving you in good hands.  I hope over the next few months I will have the opportunity to thank you all.

 

Most Sincerely,

 

Donna Hoffman  M.D.

Biography

 

I work part-time Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday in the Edina location and also spend time managing our Facebook site. I live in Southwest Minneapolis with my husband, 3 young children and a very energetic dog. I feel a good sense of balance between my home and work life and am thankful to have time to care for my family while helping care for yours. In my spare time I enjoy walking with my dog & neighbors, singing in a choir with my husband, stopping at garage sales and thrift shops, cooking healthy meals with our farm share veggies, and trying to watch Antiques Roadshow or Downton Abbey. 

 

The greatest enjoyment I have as a pediatrician is experiencing the diversity in individual patients and families. I believe in addressing the needs of the whole child—emotional, social, academic, developmental and medical. Conversations about community resources, healthy nutrition, and family support are vital for your child’s complete care.
