Dr. Hawkins is an exemplary Medical Practioner, who takes very seriously the Critical Responsibility she has to each of her Patients. Dr. Hawkins seems to have committed her life to 'Living Out' The Oath she made in becoming a Doctor, and honoring her profession.

Dr. Hawkins is extremely knowledgeable, professional and caring. My visit was anticipated and unlike many physicians in this day, I did not wait an hour in the waiting area and then another half hour after being put in the room. I was called immediately after check in and shortly thereafter Dr. Hawkins came into the exam room. She showed me concern and my visit was totally about me. I did not feel rushed because there was another patient down the hall. I believe I now have a partner with my health issues for a while!

I didn't like the fact that I had to wait in the exam room for over 30min before she came in. Let your patients wait in the waiting room if you're running late. Other than that my visit was good.

It was a great visit. She was very sincere about my concerns.
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Hawkins and the entire staff on my initial visit. I'd never had an appointment where I couldn't even complete my paperwork because they were so prompt. Each time one person left and I picked up the clipboard, there was a knock on the door and the next person was coming in or calling me back to proceed. Dr. Hawkins was very thorough, and listened well, appeared compassionate, empathetic, and didn't appear to judge. She was very detailed and addressed every concern I had without rushing me. I left with an overall feeling that I was on the right path to start getting to the bottom of all of my health issues and optimistic about resolution and/or control in the very near future. Kudos to Dr Hawkins and her staff!!!!

Extremely thorough in exam and history-taking; treated me as a knowledgeable partner in my own health care; explained reasons for additional tests, and scheduled immediate followup.
Fabulous as always, she was running a little behind today and that's understandable; it wasn't an issue.
I like her very much.
Omg! A doctor who listens and cares! She answered EVERY question with empathy and compassion. She's my NEW primary for everything health related. She gained a patient for life and my family just gained a true healthcare partner! We have a choice and I just made the best one...Dr. Hawkins! P.S. Did my weights this morning ;)

Dr Hawkins, is a very good docter. She makes sure that she covers all medical and problems that I am having I am so glad that she is my docter.
The well visit took 2 hours. I was not impressed with the physicians overall care. She wanted to refer me to a gynocologist for the pap smear instead of performing it in her office and I had not had one done in 9 years. When I asked to have her perform the test she wanted to reschedule me for another time because it would take 45 minutes.
I thought Dr Hawkins was prompt, professional and knowledgeable. She pays close attention to what you're saying during diagnosis. I'm someone who does not like going to the doctor, but I would be completely comfortable recommending her to a friend or family member.
She is one of my favorite doctors to see. She is great at following up on me, my meds, and is so gracious. I do recommend her to anyone. Who wouldn't just love her because she cares so much???
It was a pleasant visit.
