What People Say About Dr. James Hawkins, MD

Dr Hawkins is an EXCELLENT surgeon. He put in an artificial replacement disc L5-S1 and several yrs later a metal plate & screws in my neck. After MUCH research, he is the ONLY surgeon I would ever trust to touch me. This man is 2 for 2 in my book. He has the best bedside manner, he is honest and upfront..he will tell you, show you exactly what is going on and why. Do your research on him...you will be pleasantly surprised at his extensive background and his flawless reputation! A gift from God!

This is not an indictment of Dr. Hawkins, because we never got to see him, or of Dr. Brainard, who was very kind, but instead of the office staff who were not only very rude and condescending, but who also provided inaccurate and contradictory instructions, insisted we bring films with us, and then told us they were not necessary after running around gathering them. They behaved as if the patients are an imposition. Office staff can make or break a practice, and this is a disaster In the making.

Excellent surgeon, my diagnosis and outcome was exactly as he stated if I followed his directions. My outcome and experience exceeded my expectations! After nearly 30 years of back pain and almost 2 years after my microdiscectomy, my back had never felt better! Great office staff as well.
