Dr. Hopkins was a very attentive Doctor who paid attention to what needs or concerns I had before going into surgery. He is a good communicator and a doctor who obviously cared about the end result he could achieve for me. I would highly recommend his services to anyone needing hip or knee surgery.

Wow what an experience! Dr. Hopkins and his staff were outstanding. Everyone listened to me and truly wanted to help me. Dr. Hopkins went over my x-rays very thoroughly with me and explained what he saw and how my symptoms were caused by what was wrong with my knee.
