Dr. Hoffman is a man on a mission.  After overcoming a serious health challenge as a kid, he is passionate about improving access to health, wellness, and medical care for low-income and underserved populations around the country by helping doctors through the process of starting a charity and qualifying for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF).
Do you want to make the world a better place and get your student loans ERASED?
Dr. Ian Hoffman’s program, FedLoan Forgiveness for Doctors may be able to help!

In under a year he’s helped doctors qualify for over $13 million in savings on their student loans!

In 1981, Owens-Illinois, the 6th largest glass plant in the world, closed its doors. What followed was a domino effect of failed businesses, staggering unemployment and a devastatingly bleak economy. That was the year after Dr. Steven Rasner opened his practice in the same town. Regrettably, since that time, Bridgeton, NJ has remained nationally ranked for its unemployment, poverty level and lack of growth.

During this same period, Dr. Rasner has nurtured a private, fee-for-service practice that commands fees in the top percentile in the nation. It grosses over 4.1 million per year on a four-day workweek with a “two day per week” associate and a “substantial bottom line.” His team of 16 has been with the practice an average of 16 years. Dr. Rasner takes an active roll in his community and received a Congressional Recognition Award in 2000 for his civic contributions.

Dr. Rasner has published multiple books, including: The Protocol Book; The Art of Getting Paid; and The Bullet Proof Guide to the Extraordinary Practice.
