I hope I never have to be a patient at one of these kinds of facilities. I was here several times visiting a friend who is dying of cancer. She was moved here because it is the nicest of similar facilities in the area. I watched my friend wait over 20 minutes with her nurse call button on with no response. Tony/Anthony, the african american nurse with the glasses, was quite rude to me when my friend was in extreme pain and trying to get some medication. I know how difficult it must be working in a place like this, so I am intentionally nice. Tony, however, thought it was alright to completely ignore me in my requests for assistance for my friend. I have to say that everyone else I came into contact with was very kind. It takes one bad apple like him to make an experience unpleasant. Another visitor of my friend had a similar experience with this same nurse, Tony. Unemployment is at an all time low. It's time for this place to find a replacement for him.
I just moved my parents into Stratford Commons Rehabilitation and Health Care Center for long term care. The facility is state of art and staff is wonderful. They really care for their patients. Everyone is accommodating and works hard.
As talent with Hoffman International, I highly recommend them. They do a great job of representing me. I did not pay them to represent me but did pay to take thier class. It is important to be prepared and when I go to auditions I am amazed at how unprepared the talent at other agencies are. The cost of the classes is worth being prepared for what the industry asks of talent. You don't want to be turned loose without putting yourself in the best position to get the jobs you are after. Hoffman does a great job of preparing thier talent and has contacts with production companies, publications, ad agencies, and photogrpahers throughout KC, as well as throughout Kansas, Missouri. In addition, Hoffman has relationships with model and talent agencies in Chicago, New York, and LA and qualified talent have opportunities in these and other markets. This is not to say that by signing with Hoffman you will be signed to jobs in these places. However, the talent at Hoffman are provided the support and means to reach thier full potential. There are choices in where talent can go, but the right candidates can feel confident that they will be well represented by the supportive staff at Hoffman International.
I am a model at Hoffman International and I highly recommend it! They are a huge help if you want to get into fashion and commercial modeling. Every year they take models to Actors, Models, and Talents convention in Florida where agents from all over scout. The people at Hoffman are amazing. They are very helpful, professional, and down to earth. If you invest, so will they and they will groom you to be your best in many ways. This professionalism that I learned has affected my internships in college and has helped cultivate my professional career.

I have been going to GNC for a while but there is no one that knows his stuff better than Arron that works at this location now! He is so nice and helpful and after I hadn't seen him in a while he remembered my name and my goals! It feels good to go somewhere that people really care about you and your goals for being healthier!
Our nine year old son is enjoying his first year with Hoffman. The agents are top notch with the highest level of knowledge of modeling and talent opportunities nationally as well as locally. Their credentials of placing models and talent are extensive and impressive. Our son has gone on many auditions and has learned needed skills by Hoffman. We know that the agents at Hoffman truly care about their models and talent; their level of dedication and care goes beyond sending a model on an audition. We are glad we chose Hoffman for our son.
Hoffman International is an agency that focuses a great amount of attention to detail. Their staff takes their job very seriously, and they focus a great deal of their attention on their great classes for people ranging from small children to adults. These classes teach children and adults valuable lessons and skills that are needed not just for the industry but for everyday life as well.
I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to pursue modeling with Hoffman. As a 30-something mother, I doubted my ability to work in the industry. But the classes and workshops they offer (and talented photographers!) have completely prepared me to land many print and commercial jobs. Kim Hoffman goes out of her way to encourage and equip her models for auditions and bookings. Now after 10 years with Hoffman, I'm still learning and gaining confidence for whatever may be next.
