5 star surgeon

Not your typical surgeon--he cares, he listens, he follows your progress through the hospital, rehab, and physical therapy and calls to correct any problems you encounter. A great surgeon with terrific assistants, great staff, and the Banner hospitals have been wonderful. He's given me a life again--literally.

Disables Veteran Reffered to Dr James Hawkins, because no one at the va cuold treat me. I take 30mg of percocet and morphine. He told me to take an anti-inflammatory. Can Walk When I went in. Can't Walk Now He did absolutley nothing

Came in after no one could treat me at the Phoenix VA. This is by far the worst Medical Experience I have ever had at the VA or the private sector. The care here is very POOR. Waited 2.5 hrs, with an appointment while other paitents were seen that had missed theor appointment earlier in the day. They had Lost, dis not have, my MRI"S and tried to play it off. I am unable to move. This joker pops in after 2.5 hrs and says "what's the problem" are you kidding me. I had been referred for the VA Hospital with 2 surgery chits to take care of my problem. He told me "you're fine" this after I heard him outside the office worrying about how is was going to get paid from the VA. What is worrying about. He DOES NOTHING. I take 10mg of Percocet 3x a day and Morphine Sulfate. In all this pain. This QUACK tells me to take an Aleve. I am a Desert Strom Veteran with Service related problems and this guy was my last hope and he tells me to take an alleve. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE if you want even basic care. This guy has a god complex and is very smug and a disgrace.

Back surgery

DR. Hawkins performed a hemilaminectomy on me in Dec 2013. Everything went just as expected and I was walking around the hospital unassisted that night! Been painfree ever since! Staff was very helpful and kept in touch or returned phone calls promptly.
