In 2005 Dr. Hamilton saved my life! I was laying in the hospital dying and 5 doctors couldn’t diagnose me. Dr. Hamilton came in a called it sending me straight to surgery. I was near death and now I’m still here to write this review. I’ll forever be grateful.

Dr. Hamilton is patient and takes the time to explain things in terms I can understand. Even if it was bad news and I cried, he didn't make me fill rushed in any way. With his help my situation improved and he was still just as patient giving me good news.
