    Dr. Hopkins has been my doctor since 2006 and there is know one could take his place as my cardiology.
    in Novato |
    Dr. Hopkins is my mother's cardiologist. He is absolutely excellent with communication as well as procedures. We are all very happy to have him as her doctor for the past 4-5 years. He explains everything thoroughly spending time to do so. He maintains a sense of humor which, we all feel, is absolutely necessary in every profession. We cannot rate him high enough as a cardiologist as well as person.
