Dr. Jeffrey Hoffman, a pediatrician at Olson Pediatric Clinic in Lake Oswego, OR

Meet Dr. Hoffman

In medical school, rotating through the different specialties, I was drawn to pediatrics, to the challenge of sorting through the subtle clues a sick child gives. But training, experience, and my observations alone are not enough. The key is listening, really listening, to the concerns and observations of the parents. In practice, I have enjoyed the added bonus of becoming a small part of my patients’ lives, hearing their interests, their passions, celebrating their achievements, sharing their disappointments, offering council and advice. It is truly an honor and blessing to be a pediatrician.”

Special Interests

  • International travel
  • Adolescents
  • In-office circumcisions

I am married with two grown children: one a physician and one a veterinarian. I was pleased to welcome five grandchildren in four years! When not at the office or playing with my grandchildren, I enjoy writing stories (and have one published book, The Sound of His Voice), bird watching, and working on my home and garden on the Tualatin River.

After practicing for 12 years in the Columbia Gorge, I joined Olson Pediatrics in 1994.

We have been patients of Dr. Hoffman’s for 14 years-we love him!”

All our kids have seen Dr. Hoffman since birth.  The oldest is 18.  We love Dr. Hoffman.  He is kind, patient, observant, never feels like he is rushing, and expresses genuine concern for our children and family.”
