Dr. Hooks is very friendly, smiling and I felt comfortable with her. She answered my questions about my Pagete Disease. She was interested in saving my breast.

Dr. Hooks is clearly knowledgeable about my condition and able to explain it in a way I understand. She is extremely compassionate and cares about me and my overall health - not just my condition for which I'm being treated. I was impressed by how much time she gave me. I never felt rushed.
