Quality of Life..?
Self-verified patient of Dr. Gail E Hopkins II - Posted on November 15th, 2017
This Doctor performed 2 cervical fusions (Anterior & Posterior) back in 2006. Now 11 years later my "Quality of Life" that he claimed would be improved by having these surgeries has gone from bad to worse. Make sure you get a second, third, or fourth opinion before having any kind of spine fusions.

I highly recommend Dr. Hopkins. If it wasn't for Dr. Hopkins, my son would be paralyzed. The surgery's that Dr. Hopkins performed was successful and the scar line came out in a perfect line.

Dr. Hopkins is an excellent surgeon! I was very nervous going into surgery for my back as all would be. He spent a good deal of time answering my questions during appointments, this is probably why his wait time was so long :). He was worth the wait. I feel amazing after 7 months and can believe I am still doing what I love. This doctor is honest and truthful. He will not sugar coat your injury or situation which I really appreciated. I would go back to him in a heartbeat!
RIVERSIDE OFFICE/DR IS GREAT STAFF IS REALLY BAD

I am writing because we are still having issues with the office staff at Dr. Hopkins. He is a great Dr. but majority of his staff sucks excuse my language. We are very frustrated, I had to go in person an sit there for 2-3 hours to wait on a prescription that was called in 7 days prior well 5 business day ( I went because that's the only way I can get something done) when the recording says call it in 24 hours ahead. My husband has real pain not just making it up but when the MA's are trying to question DR's orders ( why is he taking so much? Well that's what the DR. Prescribed and not until they go to school for a few years not 8 months they'll know), not wanting to release info to me because they are violating HIPPA but they release his info for almost a year. So did they realize they violated their patients confidentiality? Now when I called on 10/5 to ask if the EDD paperwork was ready or mail in? They said no it's not ready and we don't know when will it be ready but I called on the 6th. and I was told it was filled out and mailed on the 2nd. somebody is lying nobody likes to lie to.
Dr Hopkins gave me my life "back"!

Dr Hopkins absolutely gave me my life back! I had a badly out of place L 5 with basically no disc. Chances of a complete recovery didn't look very good. One year later I am almost completely pain free, and back at work driving a truck over the road. I would recommend Dr. Hopkins to any one needing back surgery!
I am now pain free!

My mom was referred to Dr. Hopkins for her worsening sciatica and he said he would refer her for physical therapy then waited a month to tell us he did not like her insurance. His office didn't even call us themselves! Instead, our primary care physician had to call his office to see what the hold up was. I understand doctors have very busy lives and you have multiple patients with needs, but your patients are still people who deserve a modicum of respect. If you don't care enough to help them then the least you can do is send them to someone who will.

My experience with Dr. Hopkins was better than I could have imagined. Prior to seeing Dr. Hopkins, I had been suffering with sciatica for six months and going to physical therapy and acupuncture, until finally, I could not sit or stand without unbearable pain, pain I had never felt in my life. One night, I could take no more and called for an ambulance to take me to the emergency hospital. The shots they gave me did little, if anything, to relieve the pain. I went back to my primary doctor, asked him to do an MRI. After viewing the results of the MRI my primary doctor recommended that I see Dr. Hopkins. Of course, by now it was a few days before Christmas, most doctors were not taking appointments, but Dr. Hopkins made himself available. After reviewing my chart, and spending time with me discussing alternatives, we all felt surgery was my best option. I knew I could not take more days of the severe pain, and, my insurance company was changing on the first of the year and I was afraid it would take a long time to process the surgery request; also at this time, Dr. Hopkins had a planned vacation. I couldn't believe it when he said he would try to get the paperwork done and perform the surgery Dec. 23. And that is exactly what happened, I had surgery that day, outpatient, and walked out of the hospital a few hours later. I have been walking and sitting ever since. I have my life back! I am grateful that I was referred to such a professional and caring doctor, I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone who asks.

This doctor is the best physician of his trade. He responded promptly to my questions regarding my condition, and explained the risks of my type of surgery. The surgery went very well. I have a minimal scarring in the abdomen area and I was walking the very next day. He is brilliant! I have recommended him to others .
