Do not recommend this doctor for surgery, he will stop your pain meds in the middle of your recovery when your still in loads of pain. His bedside manner is horrible and your treated like just another number.. horrible experience.. don’t be his next victim .

Dr. Hawkins needs to work on his bedside manner. Not once did he look at me, he rushed my appointment, and he was very combative. He sent me to the hospital to have a simple procedure done. Every member of the hospital staff was cibdused as to why I was even there. Any other doctor would have done it in house. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. He was completely rude, which made my experience a negative one.
