Dr. Courtney Gardner Hoffman is living out the goal she set for herself when she was 11 years old. It was at that time that she began seeing Dr. Neta Wood, who became her mentor, then employer, and eventually business partner, for her eye care. It was thanks to Dr. Neta that Dr. Courtney could see the leaves on the trees clearly for the first time. That experience inspired a desire to give the gift of clear vision to others. After graduating from Valley View High School, Dr. Hoffman attended ASU, where she earned a BS in Zoology and enjoyed many activities, including the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. Dr. Courtney attended the Southern College of Optometry, a private college in Memphis, and earned not only her Doctor of Optometry degree, but also her MRS. Degree. Before their last year of school, Courtney married her classmate, best friend and business partner, Dr. Matt Hoffman. They share two brilliant and lovely children, Allison and Bennett, who both attend Valley View Schools.
Dr. Courtney enjoys the adventure of discovering new places while traveling, loves to read and sing, and enjoys yoga. The Hoffman family attends Compass Church and enjoy serving in various community activities. On most Saturdays between August and January, you’ll find Dr. Courtney howling like crazy for Red Wolves football. In addition to primary eye care, Dr. Courtney is particularly interested in Dry Eye Syndrome/Ocular Surface Disease and fitting specialty contact lenses for people with corneal irregularities.
