"On behalf of my Mum, we would like to say a big thank you to Dr Hawkins, for finding a treatment and solution to Mum’s cough in which Mum has had for 2 years. Mum is so much better and happier within herself and runs up the stairs with delight as she can breath again!"

"I had a cough for 17 1/2 years. I went to numerous doctors and had lots of tests and investigations carried out - all to no avail. Three visits with Dr Hawkins and my cough is gone. I cannot even start to explain how immensely grateful I am to him. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Dr Hawkins!!!"
