Provider Reviews

Dr. Hamilton and his staff were amazing. Had ACDF C-6-7. No issues and was up and back to work in days. Had horrible reaction to pain meds (no fault of the doc) and Christina was a saint as she tried to take X-rays through that experience. Will return if I have other issues.

Review for Dr. Harris

Has no respect for patients time. Arrived early for scheduled appointment, then sat in exam room FOR ONE FULL HOUR left madder than a wet hen. Had records transfered to Dr Stewart with Hillcrest group. Very pleased with the decision.

Review for Dr. Murillo

Dr. Malthesen is an excellent surgeon. He replaced one of my hips and one of my knees. Both surgeries went well and the recoveries were textbook. He is very personable and easy to talk to. I highly recommend. jw aquilla, tx
