Dr. Hooks is excellent! He listened to all my concerns and addressed them all. Explained the procedure to me and performed that procedure with ease and confidence. He instills a sense of trust which I appreciate!

I am always rushed and not listened to.I feel this provider doesn't want me as a patient.I was completely ignored and forgotten. Also, as my 6month old granddaughter was out in the car screaming, they took the time to order lunch for the whole office. They were getting meatball subs. I did let the staff know that I had my daughter and granddaughter out in the car, after an hour of waiting, they had to sit in the car.

I made the appointment with Dr. Hooks at the recommendation of my PCP due to a recent x-ray exam that showed issues with my right hip. I am dubious about surgery so I talked with Dr. Hooks on the options that I could have concerning this matter and he was very informative. I appreciated his openness as he gave me a few options to take care of this issue.

Dr. showed me x-rays of my knees and told me about the arthritus and lack of cushion between the bones so that they are bone on bone. I was the one asking about what could be done to relieve the pain and numbness in my leg from my hip to my toes. I was told the fluid could be drained and a shot of cortisone would help so that is what was done. I was surprised that I was not told about any other options that I might be looking at down the road but I guess time will tell. Leg does feel a lot better but my ankle is still number than my other foot that was fussed 5 years earlier.

I was able to talk to Dr Hooks prior to my appointment for my daughter & he himself added her to his schedule the next day & saw her immediately and I can't THANK him enough for the wonderful care & compassion he showed Brooklyn, her father & myself!!!! Hooks is an awesome doctor and I would recommend everyone to go to him for their Orthopedic needs.
