Patient Comments (13)

Like the dr. but the wait was too long. I like to see dr. soon after the appointment time and not hang around the cubicle for over an hour trying to entertain myself.

Dr. Hamat was very professional and courteous. Sometimes being able to just "talk" to a patient instead of being a mono-tone physician with no personality makes a big difference. This guy is not a robot like others.
