Dr Hopkins preformed a spiral fusion & cage on 4/19/2016 and it was the best decision I've had in my life. His staff treated me with the utmost respect and compassion! If you're looking for an excellent well trained staff with an excellent orthopedic surgeon you won't go wrong choosing Dr Hopkins!

Dr. Hopkins was my surgeon for back issues. I have had several surgeries and have been doing very well. Seven years ago I went for my first one. I have referred Dr. Hopkins whenever a conversation comes up about spine issues. I found him to be warm, confident and concerned about giving me my quality of life back. And after 5 surgeries my quality of life is great. Thanks Dr. Hopkins

I had to have a multiple Cervical Fusion as I have severe disc degenerative disease. Dr. Hopkins was amazing. Originally my surgery was scheduled for Jan 2017 but after having severe nerve pain in my arms and hands, Dr Hopkins scheduled my surgery immediately. Originally Dr Hopkins gave me a three months estimate before I could return to work however I did so well that I was back to work in 6 1/2 weeks. I would recommend him and Arrowhead Orthopaedics to anyone I know.

I broke and dislocated my left ankle while I was in Green Valley Lake, CA on 8-13-16. Dr. Hopkins did outpatient surgery on 8-23-16 at Redlands Community Hospital. He put in 6 screws, 3 wires and a metal plate. Being 70 years old I was not sure I would ever be ok. We are from Prescott, AZ and in CA as camp hosts for 6 months in the summer. I had 2 soft casts and 2 hard casts and then a boot on 10-10-16. I highly recommend him and his PA, Christina and MA, Emily. Thank you, Judy Crowell

Dr. Hopkins did not help my best friend who has been suffering with back pain for 3 years. He just looked at his picture and his attitude was like oh it's not that bad cause it does not look bad on the paper but you cannot just go by a picture. My friends insurance covered the procedures Dr. Hopkins could have done but he told him that he did not want to. If his insurance covers it and he approved for it then help the patient and do it instead of thinking about yourself and ur needs.
