My name is Marlene. I am 80 years old. Recently, while getting out of my car, I fell onto the pavement. I landed on my right side. xrays showed no broken bones but the pain was severe in my leg, hip and knee. After two weeks of pain medication and no improvement, I decided to try acupuncture. My physician recommended Dr. Hawkes. I liked her immediately. She explains the course of treatment she recommends. She has not only helped me with lessening the pain from my injury but also with a couple of other health issues I had spoken with her about. She is very knowledgeable, she listens attentively to one’s concerns. She is never in a rush. Recently I went to an orthopedic doctor to inquire about physical therapy for my leg following acupuncture. I told him about receiving acupuncture from Dr. Hawkes and he was impressed with the progress I have made and advised me to continue receiving treatments from her. I am very happy to have been referred to Dr. Hawkes. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an acupuncturist. I am sure they would not be disappointed in her. I was not.

The doctor has a warm demeanor and spent a good amount of time talking with me about my pain, asking questions and then telling me the goals of the first session. Because this was my first session she was careful to keep checking with me to see if the needles... Read more »

She is very knowledgeable about both western medicine and TCM and how the two can work together as well as when they can’t. She is also very intuitive ! As a medical professional myself, I appreciate all of her knowledge.
