Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hamill Jr "Our focus is on providing world class patient care for every patient, every day. Everyone says that. But not everyone  executes on that. We execute on it by using one simple philosophy. Our patients do not come first; our employees do. We know that if we take care of our employees they will take care of our patients. This is why when you come to any of our offices you will be greeted and taken care of by staff that have been with us for 15-20 years. Comfort, trust, care. We live by it."
