He attended the University of California Los Angeles and graduated with a double major in History and Biochemistry in 1975, and studied human anatomy at UC Davis as a graduate student. “I went to the University of Virginia School of Medicine from 1975 to 1979,” he recalls. “I did my internship in Diagnostic Radiology at UC Irvine from 1979 to 1980.” There followed a residency at LAC/USC Medical Center and a fellowship in Nuclear Medicine there, which he completed in 1984.

Today, his areas of expertise include general radiology, nuclear medicine, angiography, interventional radiology, mammography, C.T., and ultrasound. Dr. Hoffman was certified in nuclear medicine by the American Board of Nuclear Medicine and Radiology in 1984. Only about 1.2 percent of physicians specialize in radiology. He is able to correlate medical images, such as x-rays, with other examinations and tests, and based on that recommend further examinations or treatments for the patient. As a radiologist, he is also able to treat patients with radiation, or with minimally invasive, image-guided surgery.

Dr. Sim Hoffman has offices in Huntington Park, San Bernadino, and in Buena Park. He bought the Buena Park building and remodeled it into a modern radiology office.
