After two years of doctors telling me they didn't know what was causing my problem or how to fix it, Dr. Hamaty after a thorough examination and questions, knew right away what my problem was and gave me medicine to take care of it.

Made appt with for routine skin evaluation given hx of fair skin/ sun exposure and burns. I was a new patient. Dr. Hamaty and his entire staff are courteous and professional. The skin survey exam was more thorough and complete than I ever had. His method of documentation and history taking is exceptional. I had 2 skin lesions required to be removed, shave biopsy, and done in matter of minutes without pain. Strongly recommend this Dermatology department.

in Ligonier, PA |
I have been seeing Dr. Hamaty for years and I find him very professional and easy to talk to about any concerns I might have. He in turn tells me how to pay attention to my moles and notice any changes and to stay out of the sun...well unfortunately I do not stay out of the sun, but do use sunscreen, which he advocates for of course. I am confident that he will find anything suspicious and take care of it.
in Latrobe, PA |
I do like Dr. Hamaty as a dermatologist. He is very knowledgeable about his field and cares about his patients. The only negative point is that he is never on time with his appointments. He is usually running behind schedule by 30 to 60 minutes. He may want to consider allowing a little more time with each patient when scheduling appointments. I would have given him 5 stars if it wasn't for him running behind schedule every time.
in Greensburg, PA |

I would recommend Dr. Hamaty to any person seeking examination and treatment.
