When I first came to Dr. Hopkins, I was leery about having surgery. He told me that he honestly believed he could help me, and I believed him. He is honest and caring and trustworthy, which is something a patient needs. After my surgery, he spoke to my daughter and told her how the surgery went, etc. I appreciated him doing that and putting her mind at ease. I also appreciate that he listened to everything I was concerned about. I have skin allergies and back problems that I was concerned about. When I awakened from surgery, everything I asked for had been done (no cotton-bed raised to accommodate my back problems). While in the hospital, Dr. Hopkins was kind, caring, and I really came to appreciate him. I was pleased in choosing him to to this procedure. Thank you, Dr. Hopkins!
