Ratings for Dr. Glen Hawkins
I had a compression fracture in my spine in 2006. Dr Glen has helped to keep me mobile since. I have referred my husband and brother, both of whom are incredibly impressed with his knowledge, skill and ability to communicate these. Glen RARELY does actual adjustments, most often active release. He always sends people off with stretches and such to keep up the limber state that you leave in. Also noteworthy is that he is NOT one to set up a long list of recurring visits in order to resolve an issue. Usually it is resolved within one or two visits as long as you keep up the homework!
I went in to see Glen after a sports injury. He "diagnosed" me and said that I was fine to continue my sports with treatments through him. In actuality I had torn my meniscus in three different spots and had to repair my ACL after visiting the knee clinic. In believing his "professional" opinion I ran and played soccer for over a year while doing more damage to my knee. Glen is a nice guy but he should stick to chiropractics and not give out medical diagnoses.
I've been seeing Dr. Glen for a number of years for various issues including upper and lower back pain, hip pain and plantar fasciitis. The best part of working with Glen is that he strives for restoration of normal function rather than merely the repeat of the same treatments with no results, which happens with some chiropractors. When I went in with plantar fasciitis, I was skeptical that it could be treated apart from anti-inflammatory meds, but was surprised when after a few treatments with the Grastins technique, the condition cleared up and I was able to walk without pain. You always get great treatment with Dr. Glen and his personality and approach to patients is one filled with both humor and compassion! Highly recommend Dr. Hawkins to anybody needing the services of a chiropractor.
Dr. Hawkins is a very professional and highly skilled practitioner. I have always had wonderful service with Glen. He is very skilled with Graston, ART and traditional Chiropractic methods. His knowledge of the human anatomy help him diagnose and treat conditions effectively and efficiently. I continue to make Glen my first and only call if I need treatment. He clearly loves what he does and you always leave his office feeling better than when you came in.
I was very impressed with the service provided by Dr Glen Hawkins. He has a gentle manner and did not rush through my assessment interview. He asked detailed questions and as he did a few manipulations on my knee and leg, he explained what he was doing and what he was "looking for". He sent me for an xray on my knee which I had tried unsuccessfully to get from other doctors. He told me the results and was quick to say that his treatments would not work on my knee problem and that I needed to go to a knee specialist - probably for a replacement sometime in the future.
I've been going to see Dr Hawkins for nearly four years. I go to see him for chiropractic adjustments and active release therapy. Glen makes sure that I understand what I've injured, and how he is going to treat the injury. He is also awesome with recommending post care, and advises on stretches and rehabilitation. I feel very comfortable with him, and would highly recommend him as the chiropractor of choice in Calgary.
