I HAD GREAT INTERACTIONS WITH DR HAMILTON AND HIS OFFICE WITH GREAT RESULTS FROM MY SURGERY!
Miramar Beach, FL |
I consulted Dr. Hamilton regarding a sinus issue. He took time to clearly explain my diagnosis and treatment options. His staff was very friendly and professional. He was also on time and I appreciated his bedside manner.

I highly reccomend!! Dr. Hamilton (and his staff) have been amazing towards me and with my 6yr old with special needs son. Compassionate, patient, explains everything thoroughly. Everyone is so friendly and understanding. So glad we found him!

Dr. Hamilton is compassionate and caring and takes the time to explain any problems or concerns that you may have.
in Niceville, FL |
Don't waste your time or money. He insults your intelligence by talking down to you and he truly doesn't care about your well being. He belittled me for actually caring about MY health by trying to interject that my symptoms could possibly be psychological and "in my head" even though he KNOWS that I have a physical growth on my thyroid. He obviously has no clue what to do when it comes to anything dealing with a thyroid and simply has too much of an ego to admit it. FIND ANYONE ELSE!!!!!
We are grieved at your dissatisfaction with the care you received in our office,for Dr. Hamilton strives to provide quality health care while being courteous and sensitive to his patient's needs. In the more than 25 years he has practiced medicine, he has never received criticism of this degree.Most of his patients praise him for the medical expertise and genuine concern they receive. We will not address complaints on forum,but if there is any course of reconciliation,we welcome the conversation
