You'll never find a better Dr for pain med!!! Been with him 6 yrs an hope it never changes!!!!
Dr Hawk is a very great physician. He is through with his patients. He sincerely cares about his patients. His judgment call is based on his training for way over two decades and on going training. As pain management he does not push meds on people. It is the people that tries to force his hand that he does not tolerate, and no other pain management physician would allow it as well. He is strict with his practice and oath . I personally think Dr Hawk the is one of the best pain Doctor their is, and as a person he is great. He does not deserve to be to be treated the way he has.
Dr. Hawk is a great doctor me and my sister use him for are primary doctor. He has always took the time to listen to us he never rushed us he took his time to explain why he was putting us on certain medicine and would send us to specialist if need be.
I have been a patient of Dr. Hawk's for close to 5yrs now. I found that he did appear to care about me and my pain. He did spend time with me and listened to me. I think that it is awesome that he prays with patients! However, I do feel that I was being over medicated and under treated. I have an autoimmune diseases and have never been treated for them. I only take pain medication to mask the pain. Since Dr. Hawk's recent shut down. I did a little digging starting with the AR Medical Board where they shut him down by vote for emergency on 8/1. No reason as of yet. Here is what else I found... The medical board in CA shut Dr. Hawk down on April, 26th 1999 for B&P Code 822 Mental illness affecting his ability to practice medicine safely. Revoked License. 15yrs
Dr.Hawk is a very caring christian man.
Dr. Hawk is a very humble man and is awesome dr. to boot, if he can't figure out what's going on he sends you to someone who does, I wouldn't want to have any other Dr.
Dr. Hawk has always taken the time to LISTEN to me. Discuss and explain any medication and reasons for them.
It seems Dr Hawks office is closed AGAIN - it says for an "emergency"! Seems he cant keep a competent office and is always in trouble with the government. Sit in waiting room and youll see why. Im going somewhere else!
Good doctor, follow his advice and you will feel better. Willing to change your medicine if it is not the right prescription for you.
After a two hour forty five mi ute wait, during which time I sat in the exam room while they had lunch, I was seen for 5 minutes, and wasn't given any opportunity to speak. I wanted to try a different drug and he dismissed me and wouldn't explain why not, even though I have severe stenosis, and fibro. I had to cancel an appointment, and couldn't get a person to answer, only the message machine, which is constantly on despite three people behind the desk, and did it within his parameters, and they flipped out, and even though I took the first appointment offered me, I was left without meds for 7 days. He is outwardly caring and yes, he prays with you, but if he has any kind of 'issue' with you, and that's for him to decide, despite anything you might actually do or not do, then you are not treated well at all, not even with common courtesy. I wouldn't take my dog to him, I want better care for my animals.
Dr. Hawk is a GREAT doctor, i thoroughly enjoy a visit with this doctor. He is kind, caring, thorough and discusses your needs with patience and tolerance. his staff is great, they are caring and patient and meet your needs in record time.
The staff is disorganized rude and have no business in the medical industry
Great Dr. I'm young and have had trouble with doctors not wanting to help but he will take all the time needed to listen and get what is needed to help with medical issues. Young people 30s like myself so have pain. I have had 11 surgeries and hurt like heck
He Listens too my every word and Concerns, too Any issues I may have at the time, Instead of Rushing in and out of the room like other Doctors he shows he cares about me and my Health.
Dr Hawk takes time to listen to you. He genuinly wants to help you and understands pain management. He prays with you (if you are Christian) and prays for healing.
I really like dr hawk and his professional staff,i find its wonderful that he will pray with you before you leave and hes and awesome dr I would highly recommend him to any one who has major pain or is needing urgent care ,I believe having god on his side makes him the most awesome dr ever
He is a dedicated man and treated me with respect. He does not like when people are in pain and cares. I can not believe this talk. Never have I experienced anything but care for the pain I live in. I am fortunate I can still function after all of the metal placed in my neck, the broken back, hands and fingers throb and much more. I hope to see him again and do not care about the few people that made a negative comment. People get upset when he finds out they are corrupt and not telling the truth and he has to do what he has to do.
Dr hawk should be commended for all he has done for all the patients who truly need a physician who cares. I would recommend him to anyone! To the latest commentator, who are you to sit in judgement of anyone? Until u have walked a mile in my shoes or anyone else's you should keep such negative comments to yourself. Because you clearly lack any knowledge except for your opinion, and you know what they about opinions!
I have suffered from chronic pain for "many years" to many to count, and still I went forward facing negative experience along the way with several physicians resulting in the same fate "failure" Failure of physicians to care for their patients to the best of their ability! I owe my life through the grace of god for three physicians. 1. Dr Shapner 2. Dr Thomas Bell 3. Dr James Hawk. Without any of these three physicians I would not be here today, and as God as my wittiness this is the gospel truth, and no to all of you who say" we hide behind our God" no sir or mam. We stand beside our God, and our God stands beside us! I praise our Lord for allowing Dr James Hawk through his medical knowledge and experience as a great physician to offer hope to those who suffer a glimpse of hope that our lives have some sort of meaning. I know I do, and yes to the one who said his son was a drug addict. You had that choice to walk away,but you chose to stay, an yet who do you blame it on? You need to look in the Mirrow because you will know then and only then who's to blame. My prayers are with Dr James Hawk! An outstanding physician! Both as my primary physician and chronic pain management physician as well as my daughters primary care physician! We miss you and are awaiting your return!
I would highly recommend Dr. James Hawk. Spends time w/the patient. Does not rush you out the door. Is not in it just for the money. Dr. James Hawk truly cares about the patient which is a WONDERFUL feeling. I know I'm not only speaking for myself when I say I am very blessed to have Dr. Hawk as my Pain Management Physician. He is a rare find and very much appreciated. It's a great feeling to know he cares enough about me to want to help make my life a little more bearable. And I'll take ANY pain relief that I can get. â¢ General Comments: Not everyone has an understanding what it's like to be in terrible, chronic pain...never ending. Pain every single day, day in, day out, ... That's my life. Untill you're there yourself and I hope you NEVER are, don't judge those of us who need pain management. I'm am very greatful for Dr. Hawk who understands and wants to help make our life a little more normal. He's my only hope for some pain relief. And once again, I'll take whatever pain relief I can get.
I HAVE TO WONDER WHAT THE PEOPLE WITH THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS HAVE NOT "GOTTEN" THAT THEY WANTED. ALL OF DR HAWKS PATIENTS SIGN A CONTRACT WITH HIM, AND HE IS AN AWESOME PHYSICIAN AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW HIS DIRECTIONS. I KNOW WITH INSURANCE BEING WHAT IT IS THAT NOT ALL MEDICATIONS GET COVERED BY INSURANCE AND CAN BE EXPENSIVE, HE TRIES HIS BEST TO OVERCOME THE HURDLES THE INSURANCE COMPANIES THROW AT HIM. THIS BEING SAID I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIS STAFF BE RUDE OR MEAN TO ANYONE UNLESS SOMEONE GOT OUT OF LINE WITH THEM. THIS GOES FROM THE FRONT OFFICE TO THE NURSES. NO CLINIC IS PERFECT BUT AT LEAST THIS CLINIC TRIES
Dr. Hawk is a quack! Stay away and find pain relief else where! The worst Dr. I have ever had. The kind of doctor that would shoot you in the face and then pray for you. I wouldn't bring a stray cat to him. He need his license revoked!
Love Dr Hawk but got passed along to a pa brought in and she ruined my experience i was seeing him for my bladder disease and she talked about my back injury for 5 mins. Never went back sent Dr Hawk a letter and he never got back with me. Pretty bad experience overall.
I went to Dr Hawk for three years until I received a transfer to another state. I think he is highly skilled and knows exactly how to titrate and prescribe accordingly. He is caring, listens, and will even give advice. The only thing that I didn't like was that he has a tendency to play favorites and spend more time with some and less with others. He can be gruff & abrupt and has a different personality every time you visit. Also, the wait time can be an hour or more. However, he was the first doctor that gave me relief from my horrible pain and for that, I am grateful. His staff (except for Sam & Tammy) is not good. The receptionist has a very bad attitude. She did not cooperate with me about releasing my medical records that I requested before I left. I was very upset about this because according to the HIPPA law, patients are entitled to copies of their charts. Now I am being scheduled for an MRI and a CAT scan and the Insurance won't cover it unless my records are faxed and Dr Hawk's receptionist for some strange reason, will not do it.
Good Doctors ar very hard to find, almost impossible. Dr. Hawk is one of the rare ones. He will actually let you talk and he will even listen, something I think everyone will agree is hard to find. As an added bonus, he is very good at diagnosing and treating your problem. (No, I am no kin) just appreciate a good man and Doctor.
Like with most medical offices in this area, when you find a good doctor, he never has a good staff! Dr. Hawk's nurse is good, but the appt desk and billing dept. should be fired!
I really dont have very much to say abour hawk except bad. He thinks hughly of himself. I saw beaten down people when i went there. He demeaners peoples self esteem. I have a serious physical problem and went to him. Right off the bat he told me if i dont like what he is doing to leave and find another dr. And said it many times as the visits went on. I reassured him that i was going to do what he said but it wasnt enough. He acts like a dictator. His bedside manner is little to be desired. Ive been to enough dr's to know this guy needs his license revoked. If i knew how to get it done i would. He makes sure to make you feel an inch tall. I on the otherhand wasnt beat down. And i believe that it played a hand in our problems as well. The staff on the otherhand are great. He is no doctor. He is an internet diploma wannabe. Dont go to him, find someone who cares for your wellbeing.
i am moving back to Harrison Arkansas and want to restart seeing doctor hawk again..he takes his time to listen to you and will help you in anyway he can...hes just an awesome doctor that cares about his patients.
The office staff was didn't seem to care anything about me. It was like they would prefer if I wasn't there. They were too busy talking about non work related things.
Office staff was VERY unprofessional... No problem with medical staff, they were very helpful, knowledgeable but as due to lousy office staff I will never be going back again. Office staff were busy talking about non work issues to take time to help.
My first impressions of doctor was one of, I've finally found a doctor that cares. After seeing him for a few years I relized he was continuously uping my pain pill dosage. After bringing it to his attention that I might be taking to be he got mad and dropped me as a patient. I done everything he every asked me to do and even more. In the end I came to relize that he is a man that hides behide christianity in order to gain the trust of his patients. In the in this doctor does not care about his patients. I would have to agree with a few others on here that Dr. James Hawk is a pain pill pusher. I would tell you to stay away
At first I really thought Dr. hawk really cared about me. The very first visit he held my wife and my hand asking god to work through him to help get me better. I really liked him. Then after a few visits it seems he stops caring about you but more interested in pushing you on pain pills. Even after I talked to him about other ways to treat my pain he continued to increse my pain pill dosage. From time to time I would have to bring one of my children to the Dr. office and the nurses were rude. The Dr. acted like my child was nothing but trouble. My child was 18 months old so maybe a little loud. Anyways, I came to the conclusion, that Dr. Hawk only cares about how many pain pills he can push down you than trying to get you better
I told him two times that my son had a history of drug abuse with schedule 2 drugs,and he continued to prescribe them to him even though he had no x-rays or lab work to indicate that my son needed these drugs.When I pressed the issue, he found an excuse to terminate my doctor-patient relationship.He refuses to discuss these issues with me. hiding behind his staff.I also learned he had his license revoked in California.He he continues pushing pills, he's going to get it revoked here.It WILL catch up with him.
This is a great Dr. I love him dearly
Dr.Hawk,Where was God today when you dropped me from your practice because after lying in pain for 3 days, I had the audacity to call your office 3 times in an 8 hour period trying to find some answers. Quit hiding behind GOD, you are an A1 jerk, as I already knew from the past, I just hoping that you had found the real GOD, and had changed. You told me " God picks my Patients" Well, my GOD does not turn his back on anyone, leaving them in pain and illness. You even told me you would prescribe the Clonazepam, and I'll already called my Dr. and told him I had found a DR. closer, thanked him for the years he had been seeing me, and told him I wouldn't be seeing him any more!
Dr Hawk is a fantastic Dr. I would recommend him to anyone. He has always been very kind to me and helped me with the pain I have. Also his caring nature.
Dr. Hawk, his nurse's, and the rest of the staff are wonderful caring people. I would recommend them to anyone. I have always been treated as a person and not just a room number. Dr. Hawk puts his heart into his practice. They saved my life.
My experience with this office was a great one. The staff was very pleasant. Dr. Hawk spent alot of time with me and has helped me a great deal with my medical conditions. I would greatly recommed him to anyone.
he treets people like drug seekers. he only really cares to prescribe as many as possible so he can kick-backs. he will falsely diagnose people so that more tests can be performed to both scare the patient and get kick-backs from the high priced drugs he prescribes. i and others feel he need to be kicked out of practicing medicine.
