Patient Comments (12)
in Oak Hill, VA |
I've been a satisfied patient of Dr. Hamilton since Nov, 2010 thru the present beginning carpal tunnel surgery thru present, July, 2017, with thorough, precise reviews, assessments and guidance regarding two (2) back/spine fusions, by others, and sensible, conservative treatments going forward. Dr. Hamilton always sees me himself, even after seen by his Medical Professionals/Assistants and spends no rushed time listening to and answering my concerns honestly and directly. RKS/Oak Hill, VA.
in Richmond, VA |
I was unable to walk without a cane or walker for over 18 months. Many doctors in the Richmond area told me there was nothing they could do for me. I contacted Dr. Hamilton, he reviewed my case history, x-rays, MRI's and past procedures and felt he could help me. Within two weeks surgery was scheduled and within hours of the surgery I could walk without assistance. Because of Dr. Hamilton's experience, knowledge and expertise, he exceeded my expectations, I can never thank him enough.
in Annandale, VA |
Always upfront and direct with diagnosis, follow up plans and long term expectations. He has always taken the time to make me feel at ease explaining pros and cons of my treatment, I have met a few of his patients and we agree he has gifted set of hands when it comes to his specialty of neurosurgery, he removed a tumor from one of my vertebrae and allowed me to walk. very satisfied with his services. will be thankful for the rest of my life. Many blessings.
I would recommend Dr. Hamilton to friends and family.

Excellent Surgeon! He really listened to my concerns! First time I am pain free since 2012!
in Springfield VA |
Dr. Hamilton did a spinal fusion March 2016. The surgery was very successful. I returned to work 6 weeks after. I went to physical therapy as recommended by Dr. Hamilton and 1 year later I am back doing things I did prior to hurting my back. I travel for my job internationally and I am back to a full schedule. I highly recommend Dr Hamilton.

Dr Hamilton and his staff are AMAZING! First, Dr H. is extremely professional, knowledgeable, kind hearted, capable of really connecting with his patients, and a masterful surgeon. He truly flew in with a cape and saved my life! All of my follow ups in his office have shown me that hi is part of the best team I have ever seen. From reception to check out, they are outstanding. D. Anderson.

Dr. Hamilton is fantastic. He operated on my cervical spine 1.5 years ago. Another surgeon was recommended to me but was unavailable for a month-- I was in extreme pain-- horrible-- and found Dr. Hamilton who was able to see me within a week. Thank goodness I found him-- he has a PhD AND and MD--genius- who does that? He is a true professional -- and has a wonderful manner about him-- he is never in a rush, listens, and cares deeply. His staff is great too. Scar looks great and I am pain free!
Alexandria, Virginia |
I saw Dr. Hamilton as a new patient. Before I saw him I couldn't even walk. I was in severe pain. I had so many questions regarding the surgery, but he he took his time to answer all of my questions. The day after I got out of the hospital I could walk. I wouldn't recommend no other Neurosurgeon! The BEST doctor.
Culpeper Va |
I was so afraid to have neck surgery, I went to Dr. Hamilton for a second opinion. After talking to him about the recommended surgery I felt a ease. Dr. Hamilton, his nurse and scheduler were so helpful. Excellent service.

Washington DC |
Experience w/ Dr. Hamilton was poor. He appeared very disinterested during the visit. He is the only doctor out of approx 10 Dr's I've seen for my issue who didn't do the patient exam. PA did it. Also PA made subjective comments about my MRI. "Gee, your MRI looks great until we get to here. ..." Dr. H. was most interested in the other neurosurgeon I saw who didn't recommend surgery (Dr. H recommended surgery). Dr. H. said "What? A neurosurgeon who wouldn't recommend surgery?!"
