Bleesed to have Melinda Hawkins taking care of me during such a difficult time. My journey started in early May 2017,, second surgery Oct 2017 , already in recovery mode and should be back to work 100% in January. Me and my family are very grateful for everything Dr. Hawkins has done me , Thank you

I saw Dr. Hawkins for a consultation last week, and had surgery with her yesterday. Dr. Hawkins is kind, compassionate, confident, and very knowledgeable. I've seen multiple other doctors about this issue, and she was the only one to actually figure it out. I'm 22, and this is my first major medical issue, therefore it was kind of my first surgery, but everyone was so kind and considerate. Hopefully I don't need anymore surgery, but I would recommend her and Swedish in general to anyone.
