Dr. Amanda Leigh Hoffman was born in San Diego, California and raised in Houston, Texas. She attended Bellaire High School and graduated summa cum laude from The University of Texas at San Antonio with a bachelor’s degree in health and a minor in biology. Prior to medical school at The University of Texas Health Long School of Medicine, she worked and volunteered as a medical scribe in the emergency department, an ophthalmic technician at a local homeless shelter, a research assistant in a biology department, and an assistant teacher for a biosciences course.
During her time at The University of Texas Health Long School of Medicine, she was active in the global health program where she spent time volunteering and learning in both Guatemala and Ecuador. During these trips, she provided medical care alongside a team of physicians in local clinics, community centers, an orphanage, and a women’s detention center. She took a course in medical Spanish during her stay in Ecuador. Although not fluent, she is working to continue her studies of the language.
Dr. Hoffman completed her pediatric residency at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital (Miami Children’s Hospital). During this time, she studied and worked intensely in a general pediatric clinic, emergency room, and children’s hospital, rotating through all specialties and intensive care units. She presented lectures and research at various conferences and developed a passion for education and preventive medicine. In December of 2022, while finishing her studies, Dr. Hoffman got married. Both her and her husband’s families live in the Houston area. They are looking forward to spending their free time with family and friends, as well as staying active with their dog. Choosing to work as a general pediatrician, she hopes to form a bond with families in the area and work together towards bettering the health of the community that she grew up in.
Dr. Hoffman is currently not accepting new patients.
