The worst doctor I have ever seen in my life (and I have seen doctors in several countries). He only cares about the insurance companies, and he is proud of it. He refuses to give tests for co-infections when my son is clearly sick, and has a positive test (given by another doctor). He does not even know what the test results mean. I needed to educate him by sending him the CDC interpretations of the test results. The worst experience ever!

Dr. Dawkins is my primary care physician. I chose him because of his impressive resume and his sports medicine specialization. I have seen him for about two years now with excellent results. My first impression is that I do not feel rushed through our appointments. He wants to fully hear me out and then offer a thorough opinion, and he answers all my questions. This makes confident that he offers the best medical advice possible. I trust his medical expertise and wholeheartedly recommend him.

Dr. Dawkins in a wonderful person and listens to what you need before he helps you implement a solution. He is patience, professional and very knowledgeable. He also provides assistance in sports related injuries and concerns, as a Sport Certified Professional. I would recommend him to anybody looking for a very satisfying medical experience. Don A
