Here's what Dr. Hawker has to say about himself and Star Family Health and Wellness.
"I completed a master's degree in Child and Adolescent development during medical school and know how imperative a good balance of mental and physical health is in our children. I am a father of five and love working with young patients and caring for many of the developmental and mental illnesses they face.
I focused a great amount of my elective and free time during residency, learning and managing skin conditions, cancers and performing outpatient skin procedures. I feel very confident assessing, diagnosing and treating abnormal skin diseases and have developed many close relationships with specialists locally, to whom I can reach out to or refer.
I commit to patient-centered care and help the patient to be educated and make the best decision for themselves. I am passionate about teaching and know that a well informed patient will ultimately make the best choices that lead to greater health. I look forward to establishing my career here in Star, Idaho for the many years to come."
