I really liked my visit with Shellie - she took her time and genuinely seems interested in making me feel seen - so much so, that I wish I had changed from my normal OB sooner.

I have been Shellie's patient for 23 years. She has at every moment been patient and generous with her time and really listened to me. I am so grateful for Shellie.

Dr. Shelly Hawk is exceptional and has always been since my very first visit. Thorough, caring, proactive. Asks questions to understand my personal situation. Very thankful she is still my doctor. I wish I could same for my general practice which changes with every visit. I feel heard with Dr Hawk. She was also doctor for my daughters 3 children. She gave feedback that dr Shelly checked back with her frequently which helped to ease her new mom anxiety. Really can't say enough wonderful things. I look forward to my annual checkup.

Very happy except for my last wellness visit with a different doctor. He was really terrible, I felt like an intruder of his personal time. I didn't leave a review, worried he was having a bad day. But will never schedule with him ever again. But if Dr Shelly Hawk leaves I will be devastated and probably go back to University Hosp with my former general practitioner who was acceptable. I wanted all my medical records in one place and is reason I am at CCF.

Shellie Hawk is the best doctor in any specialty that I've ever had. She truly listens, strives to understand, gives all necessary medical information without pressuring or making any differing views you as the patient might have seem wrong or dumb. She truly feels like a friend.
