“The best part of being an endocrinologist is I really get to know my patients,” she said. “I am proud of the relationships I have built with my patients, in particular with those who were reluctant to keep their first appointment – especially when we can reflect on the progress that has been made and the improvements they’ve been able to make in their health as a result of working with me.”
Dr. Hopson completed a fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at the Medical University of South Carolina, in Charleston, SC, in 2004, and an Internal Medicine residency at the Greenville Hospital System, in Greenville, SC, in 2002.
