Dr. Hopkins' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hopkins "Brian D. Hopkins M.D. is a board certified urologist in private practice in the East Bay since 2000. In addition to being a diplomate of the American Board of Urology, he has a second board certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. He has a very busy surgical practice and has particular expertise and interest in the surgical treatment of genitourinary cancer (including prostate, bladder, and kidney cancers), advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery, female pelvic prolapse and incontinence, and complex genitourinary reconstructive surgery. He has been performing surgery with the da Vinci robot since 2002, shortly after it received FDA approval, having been one of the first users of this technology. Dr. Hopkins' mission is to offer the best urologic care to his patients, with an emphasis on ensuring that his patients receive academic-level surgical care, with the latest and most innovative surgical techniques available. He strives to always have the highest attention-to-detail possible in all facets of patient care. Conscientious and thorough patient communication is essential to his mission. Dr. Hopkins was born and raised in San Diego, California. He received his undergraduate education at UCLA with a B.S. in Kinesiology-Physiology. He went to the University of Southern California (USC) for medical school, graduating in 1994. After medical school he remained at USC for a 1-year surgical internship, followed by 5 years of urologic training at USC, where he received extensive experience in urologic oncology and urinary tract reconstruction using intestinal segments for patients having their bladders removed for bladder cancer. In addition to his busy clinical schedule, Dr. Hopkins has been active with many leadership positions at the John Muir Medical Centers, including Chief of Urology, Chairman of Surgery, Robotics Steering Committee member/advisor, John Muir Cancer Committee member, and as co-chairman of the Program in Urology since 2010. Dr. Hopkins is a member of the American Urologic Association, the American Urogynecologic Society, the American Association of Clinical Urologists, the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, the California Medical Association, and the Alameda-Contra Costa County Medical Association.

Found tumors ,but forgot to include in his summary and did not do biopsy. Had to go to another urologist for treatment and they indeed ended up doing bladder cancer surgery
in Danville, CA |
The office staff is rude, unhelpful and unprofessional.
