Dr. Hawkins performed a procedure on my husband that has forever changed our lives for the worse. When my husband went to another doctor, whom we have learned was a leader in the problem that my husband had, that doctor told us the procedure performed by Dr. Hawkins was an old procedure, known to be fraught with problems, that is no longer used. Be very careful. Our lives will never be the same. I feel so badly for my husband; I wish I could have stopped him before he saw this doctor. I encourage you to listen to the voices of those who had a bad experience. We are real people who, sadly, put our trust in this man’s hands.

This doctor sucks!! He pressured my dad into having a risky procedure done. Which for years all his doctors told him he wasn't a candidate for surgery.My dad was sent home. And he died that night. I wouldn't let this doctor remove a bandaid from me.

Dr Hawkins attended to me for emergency catheter placement at Summit. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He had pulled up and reviewed my records quickly. He assembled his team and attended to me quickly as I was in extreme pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Hawkins to anyone needing a Urologist
