I love my patients. I'm elated when my grades show that they love me.

Denver, CO |
One of the best doctors our there!! I had to move away from TN and have yet to find a doctor to match Dr Hamilton. Really took time out with my children with diagnosing them and ensuring they received proper care. Office staff is awesome and was always helpful.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Hamilton says...

I treat every child as if he or she is my own.  We take every insurance and refuse to alter care based on insurance.  I came to this community 10 years ago.  My plan was to return to the north for fame and fortune after my 4 year rural service agreement.   I fell in love with the children of this community.  Now, I'm here to stay.
