Thrilled with the care, respect and especially the compassion displayed by Dr. Hooks. I would not hesitate to recommend him and see him myself for ANY orthopedic issue.

phenomenal surgeon and staff. The best Doctor I have worked with and would highly recommend him.

This visit was the first time I met Dr. Hooks (on recommendation from another physician), and he was excellent in every way. He knew members of my family and there was a nice connection. I have full faith in his knowledge and suggested treatment.

If this was my first experience getting a hip replacement, I probably would have chosen Dr. Hooks as the surgeon. The two reasons I didn't is because Dr. Hooks couldn't or wouldn't tell me that I could have the save artificial hip implanted in my left hip as I have in my right hip. Secondly, I have heterotopic bones. The procedure wasn't the same as I had during my first hip surgery. Dr. Hooks seemed to be a highly qualified and knowledgeable surgeon.

Dr. Hooks is very confident, very informative and reassuring. He went over my injury and explained that surgery would have to take place. He stayed in contact with us going over all the information. The day of my surgery I was relaxed without worries. Surgery went well and I'm very happy.
