Patient Comments (3)
Houston, TX |
informative, professiona and personable, explained procedure fully
in Houston, TX |
I have been most impressed with Dr. Hamat's care and professional demeanor as well as his knowledge. In addition to having my colonoscopy, I referred my mother, who had seen at least 8 doctors over the past 3 years with no one providing adequate solutions or diagnosis. Dr. Hamat found the issue in one visit and arranged all the care with the specialists as needed. I highly recommend Dr. Hamat and his professional team who were also most professional.
in Kingwood, TX |
Dr. Hamat is extremely knowledgeable. He also really listens to me and hears my voice, and he educates me about and lets me have a say in my treatment options.
