This content was provided by Dr. Hamilton "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."

Patient Comments (2)

I have never seen a doctor that's so disrespectful in my life and the level of care is terrible he doesn't even touch his patients I don't recommend my dead dog to see him no wonder he is always available with lack of patients

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.
