I requested Dr. Hamilton to do my surgery as he and SCOI have excellent reputations in the community. When people asked who was doing my surgery and I told them it was Dr. Hamilton, the would invariably say "Oh, he's good".

Dr. Hamilton by far is a top notch person. From the first day I met with him he was very professional in not only his approach in the procedure but as well at answering any of mine or my wife’s questions that we had. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hamilton to anyone needing an orthopedic procedure he and his staff are very great at what they do and how they do it and they work together so well. I would definitely go back to him for anything orthopedic related from now on.

I went with Dr Hamilton for my surgery to my left knee. It’s the best decision I made. Everyone was very professional. Dr Hamilton has a very caring staff. I’m so blessed with the results after the surgery. The staff kept in touch with me through Health Loop. It help me through my recovery. And for that I’m truly thankful.
