Dr. Hooks is the bomb. He performed a scope on my shoulder and assured me that I wouldn't be in a lot of pain because it was a simple procedure, and he was right. The surgery went well and I know I will be back to normal in no time. Thanks Dr. Hooks and staff I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family.

Normally, I don't spend too much time in the waiting period, however for this visit I waited more than two hours. it was okay for me because I did understand that with the holidays it can happens, besides that inconvenient, everything was fine. He is an excellent physician.
