Dr. Hawkins is a caring physician. He listens and follows up with my test results. I had no problem getting an appointment and was seen within 10 minutes of arriving. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable regarding my insurance coverage. They went out of their way to help me with my prior authorization for my medication.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Hawkins and he spent time with me, listening and helping me to get control of my diabetes. He also referred me out to the endocrinologist and cardiologist. The staff had my records and information faxed over to the physicians that same day and I was able to make my appointments. They are very cordial and prompt! I was very happy with this office.

Whos giving theses reviews? The Dr is wonderful but the front office need jobs in a non customer service industry. They have not helped my husband once to get to his referrals! He has called the rederrals with due diligence and not one has called back so we call Dr Hawkins office and they are so rude and unconcerned and offer no help. My husband has some issues that can become serious enough to debilitated him and some that can cost him his life! So sad and utterly disgusting to see!!!!

The staff is so friendly and always goes the extra mile. My name is John Rotta I suffer from PTSD and DR. Hawkins is really so understanding and always is helping me more and more every time I see him. Since the two years I've seen him I've never felt better. Also I just had a baby so there's no words that describe how compassionate this DR. is. I can say my family love's him and I love this man. Thank you for being the best.??

I am very impressed with Dr. Hawkins and his office. They were kind and courteous. I was able to get an appointment that day when I had the flu and prescribed the correct medications for my illness. The office was clean and comfortable with many magazines to read.
