Dr. Hamlar removed my tonsils a month ago. I've heard all the horror stories about a tonsillectomy, how painful and risky...etc. My surgery and recovery was great! I truly believe it's because I had the most talented, knowledgable and skilled ENT surgeon! He was wonderful!!

He did a horrible job on my daughters ear. He botched another surgery with her. She is lucky that she is O.K. He does not explain well. He did not finish what he was suppose to. My daughter suffered so much for no reason.
