SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. Hawn is a lovely & caring physician - I feel very lucky to have had her care for me.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Hawn is terrific.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

I was so nervous to have my surgery, but everyone gave me the confidence to go on with the surgery. Thank you.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Such a caring staff.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Very good experience.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

This is the first doctor to physically exam me in this 2 1/2 year struggle. So grateful to be listened to.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

They were on time very nice & professional.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Very good.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I have high confidence in the treatment and advice I received from Mary Hawn.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Hawn provided an excellent second opinion for me.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I was given very little information about what to expect with the surgery, how it was going to be done, i.e. Why I had 10 incisions, what to expect post surgery, that it would be the most painful surgery I have ever had! The hernia pain was worse after surgery, still hard and swollen, and still is! The stab wounds are still painful and red, although I have had them checked for infection by my PCP. Dr. Hawn answered my concerns on the last visit., but I should have been told during the first visit to alleviate my worries post surgery.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I would like to have seen my CT scan & examined it with doctor answering my questions.
