I would definitely recommend Dr. Hamlin to family and friends. He is a very compassionate and caring doctor. That means so much to me who is the biggest chicken there is to have anything major done.

In 2008 I had severe pain and could hardly walk. Dr. Hamlin performed hip replacement surgery and I have nothing but praise for him. I think I will soon need the same procedure on my other hip. I am very sad that Dr. Hamlin is no longer in Morgantown to perform the surgery.

Dr. Hamlin performed by full knee replacement less than six weeks ago. He is a miracle worker. I left the hospital without a walker, used my cane for one week. Following three sessions of PT per week for the next four weeks, I am 100% rehabilitated. I have never felt better. I highly recommend Dr. Hamlin. He also made a point to see me in the hospital while I was there. Today, I had my surgical follow up appointment and Dr. Hamlin told me there were no restrictions. If and when I have need for another knee replacement, I will contact Dr. Hamlin right away. Thank you, Dr. Hamlin, Sincerely, Karen Hessel

Dr Hamlin took time and care of me, my concerns and my family's concerns. I had a difficult injury and was losing hope. Dr Hamlin took steps to attempt other therapies. I am forever grateful to Dr Hamlin and his awesome team. Yes I have a ways to go but considering my previous conditions I am 300% better and taking life on.

I was very terrified to have hip replacement surgery, and Dr. Hamlin made me feel at ease and gave me wonderful care afterward. After 2 years, I feel wonderful, and I am so glad I made the decision to do the surgery.

dr. Hamlin and his staff are very thorough in explaining the procedures that make their outcomes so successful . I am very happy with my hip replacement and wish I had done it two years ago . They get you up and moving the day of your surgery and I think it really helps guarantee a good outcome . We drove two hours to get there and I would drive another two if I had to .
