Patient Comments (3)
Minneapolis, MN |
I am a parish nurse, who accompanied a church member to the hospital for surgery. Doctor Hamlar not only explained everything thoroughly, he also connected with his patient in a honest and warm way. Was so impressed by the level of caring and skill of Doctor Hamlar. He is a great surgeon with excellent credentials but also a person who is aware of the emotional/psychological care needed for his patients.

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!!
in Excelsior, MN |
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.
