Patient Comments (1)
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Hawkins treated my parents and me. They loved him, as do I, because he makes people comfortable while giving top-notch medical care. He takes time with his patients, has a caring manner, and never recommends more than people need. In fact, he encouraged me not to spend a lot of money on eyeglasses.
