While at Wake Forest Dr. Hartman had the privilege of serving as Chief Resident and later as Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine.
“As both an allergy sufferer and parent of children with allergies, I know how important it is to understand and feel comfortable with your doctor. My hope is to partner with my patients and their families, helping them understand and manage their allergic conditions.”
When not at work Dr. Hartman enjoys time with his wife, son, and daughter.
“As a family we love basketball, anything outdoors and trips to North Carolina’s beaches.”
After moving to Winston-Salem in 1999 for her Allergy and Immunology fellowship at Wake Forest , Dr. Hoffman and her husband fell in love with the area, culture and people here. She has been practicing in the area now for over 10 years.
“My interest in allergy and immunology stems not only from a fascination with the immune system, but also because I have allergies myself. In fact, one of my daughters suffers from food and nasal allergies in addition to asthma. So as a parent, I have had first-hand experience coping with these diseases.”
Dr. Hoffman enjoys seeing patients of all ages, and her special areas of interest include environmental nasal allergies, asthma, and food allergies.
“I have found that appropriate treatment of allergic disease can dramatically improve quality of life.”
When not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters, two cats and dog.
Originally from South Carolina, Dr. McPherson and her husband moved to Winston-Salem in 2001 where they now live with their two children.

Dr. McPherson works hard to empower her patients and their families with knowledge about their conditions and treatment options that deliver positive results. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and singing in a Praise Band at my church.
