About James Hawkes, MD


Ever since I was about 8 or 9 yrs old, my abuelita Rosalbita said 'este nino es un plato.  Es tan habiloso, va a ser doctor.'  

I remember my grandmother killing the chicken with an axe.  Then dissecting it and showing me the liver, heart, lungs, bones, stomach, and how the eggs come out.

True enough, when I got to college...  I guessed, 'I think I'm supposed to study medicine.'

Me encanta viajar!

I was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.  My father was a US diplomate, and mother from Chile. 

True to all ex-pat children, my favorite hobby is travelling.

Medical missions.

I love doing medical missions.  They help keep sanity in a broken world.  Especially when comparing our dysfunctional healthcare system.

The more we give away, the more the universe gives back to us.

We should all practice GIVING a little more.

The photos and relics in our clinic are originals.  They have special meaning. They bring good vibes to our space.
