Meet Dr. Hawkins
Although Dr. Hawkins was born in Nashville, he grew up in Lewisport, KY, just outside of Owensboro. He graduated magna cum laude from Transylvania University (Lexington, KY), and attended the University of Louisville School of Medicine where he graduated with honors. Dr. Hawkins completed both his internship in surgery and residency in urology at Indiana University Medical Center working with an extensive network of urologic oncologists, reconstructive urologists and experts in endoscopic and minimally invasive surgery and stone disease. Dr. Hawkins is a Board Certified Urologist providing comprehensive urological care in all aspects of urology with a particular focus on patient-driven care and new technologies.
I’ve never been to an urologist before so I entered into the uncharted waters with some trepidation. Fortunately I had a very productive visit. Dr. Hawkins has an easy going manner and approachable. Guys going to urologist tend to be nervous because of the subject matter to be discussed. He listened carefully to me and provided easy to understand interpretations to my questions. A plan of treatment was recommended with a date set for follow up. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hawkins to friend and family. My entire experience from sign in to check is what you would expect from a professional medical practice.
I have received the best care from Dr. Hawkins. I was living a frightening situation when told I was in need of a Urologist. It was 2010, Dr.Hawkins took excellent care helping me survive bladder cancer. He is the best, most trustworthy doctor. He has followed my recovery from the beginning. I am 11 years cancer-free, i do and will always praise his experience and support as the best available.
I've become accustomed to having less time with doctors than I would like but today's visit with Doctor Hawkins was a pleasurable informative experience. I had a thorough exam and left the office feeling confident that "I'm in good hands."
