We couldn't ask for a better doctor! Loved her! We were able to phone our daughter so she could listen to the whole visit.

Dr. Hooks has explained everything clearly from the start and I can't imagine anyone doing it any better. She is so compassionate, kind, and clearly one of the very best in her field. I fell lucky to have met her and been under her care.
