Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He tells it like it is.
I have been seeing Dr. Hamaker for a few years now. He doesn't sugar coat what he sees. I knew I had cataracts because he told me, 4 years before they "ripened ". I kind of knew when they were ready. Just wasn't ready for it! He and his staff walk you through everything. First eye is Wednesday!

I had cataract surgery with Dr. Hamaker recently. I asked his nurse if I would have Dr Hamaker for my second eye surgery and she said yes. I was relieved because I only wanted him to do my second surgery. He is a very kind, caring doctor and answered all my questions. Thank you Dr. Hamaker

Dr Hamaker is thorough and explains technical issues well. I took a field of vision test which gets boring. Dr Hamaker said he takes the same test periodically to remind himself of what his patients experience. Impressed!

The staff was friendly and professional. However, the front desk staff could have been a little more friendly. Dr. Hamaker, as usual, was very nice and took the time to explain each procedure and the results. He did my cataract surgery several years ago and everything went great.
