Had knee problems and recommended I see another specialist. He was a waste of time and his p.a. wasn't any better...very rude.

I had a very complicated knee injury. Dr. Hawkins did a great job of repairing my fractured patella and torn tendon. His bedside manner was the best I have ever seen. His staff is wonderful if you have questions they give you all the time and attention you need. I highly recommend Dr Hawkins and OAA
