"I want to thank Alycia Hawkins for being such a through and knowledgeable Dr. I'm glad to be a patience of hers."
"Julie was terrific. "
"Everyone in the office was exceptionally nice from the moment I walked in, and set to work quickly on providing care for me. I saw Alycia Hawkins, and both her assistant and Hawkins herself listened to me in a way I can honestly say I haven't felt listened to in several doctor's offices or even ER visits. I was waiting for results from a CT scan over the weekend in order to schedule follow-up appointments, and Hawkins actually messaged me about the results during the weekend to provide guidance on the best next steps. I'm still in the process of seeking treatment for this issue, but every step of the way that I've needed help from Alycia Hawkins and her office, they have provided it with ease. "
"Dr. Yao is very thoughtful and informative. We also are very happy with Julie Ann."
"Alycia Hawkins is wonderful!!!"
