Dr. Derrick Hamilton, MD
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.

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.
