I saw Dr. Hooks because I am having problems with my thumbs/hands...I have arthritis in them and I have trigger thumb on my right hand. I had my right thumb injected. Dr. Hooks explained everything to me in regards to my problem and he also explained that the injection might not work. He was very upfront about the condition in both my hands. I think Dr. Hooks is an awesome Dr. and an asset to your staff, you better hang on to him :)
