Kimberly H. Hopkins, MD
Dr. Kimberly Hopkins joined Randolph OB/GYN’s medical staff on August 1, 2013, after an award-winning residency at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. She was recruited to join the practice by her friend and former UT resident physician Dr. Karen Horne, who has served Randolph for three years. A native of D.C. and Virginia, Dr. Hopkins graduated from Wake Forest University in 2003, and its Medical School in 2008. She did a year in general surgery, then completed her residency at UT in 2013. During her residency, she did a research project on how robotics is changing resident education, and was selected to make an oral presentation about her findings at the annual meeting of the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Orlando in 2012.
She received the A.W. Diddle Award from UT for her outstanding research presentation in 2012, and in 2013 received an award for excellence in pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Married to Marquis Hopkins, she has three children including a set of twins. “I wasn't 100% sure I knew I wanted to do OBGYN until I was pregnant,” Dr. Hopkins recalled. “But seeing the importance of the doctor/patient relationship during that time in my life, and the impact the doctor had on my life, wanting to be a part of that in other patients’ lives, made me want to pursue that. I feel that you can make an impact when women are making life-changing decisions in their lives, especially since women are the cornerstone of the family. Also I love variety, seeing patients in the office as well as surgery, OBGYN had the diversity I felt I needed.”
Dr. Hopkins also enjoys running, watching college football, “traveling after my kids,” and other outdoor activities.
