Patient Comments (1)
Rochester, NY |
I've been consistently appalled by not only Dr. Hamilton's lack of bedside manner, but also his inability to sustain a dialogue with patients. While some brevity from doctors would be understandable, he acts put out to be with a patient for over 5 minutes. He's actively dismissive of patient desires to understand why certain medications are being prescribed and he's closed-minded about diagnoses; at best, he'll give you an outdated type-written handout from the 80s. Hard pass.
