with 60+ years of back and leg pain, with many back ops, he took the wheel and steered me into moderate activity, clear eyes and work in my chosen field. My wife and I are very pleased with Dr. Hopkins.

Dr. Hopkins is the most compassionate doctor I’ve found. He spends time understanding his patients and truly cares for their best interest. Dr Hopkins is very knowledgeable in all areas and has taken care of me for years when in chronic pain and having a morphine pump for eight years. If you want a great pain doctor, this is the doctor you would want.

I had not seen Dr. Hopkins till he came to my rescue when I was admitted to hospital in for surgery. CT scans, Xrays and other pre-op tests were required that I could not tolerate. Dr. Hopkins understood my plight, swiftly made arrangements for pain management though all the preliminary test and even more impressive, kept checking on me, before and after surgery, gave me his card and sincerely made it clear that if anyone failed to follow his protocols I was to call him. He is a remarkable.

Everything was fine until all of a sudden he stopped taking all insurance. Cash only, the clerk would make a photocopy of the cash. I was also charged by prescription, that is, the actual paper. $15.00 per prescription and $30.00 per what was then called Triplicate. Granted, this was all in 2003. $300.00 every two weeks. Finally found someone who would take me in. If you're a legit chronic patient, you know by now the odds are stacked against you regardless of the Doctor.
