Dr Hamwi is very attentive. And he knows Diabetes. When I started with him my A1C was 9.5 now I am at 5.6. Big difference. With him getting the combination of my meds right I have not only lowered my A1C but my weight has went from 254 to 182 and I am still losing. Thank you Dr Hamwi!!!!

I have been seeing him for several years now. I find him great, especially the way he is so attentive to your case. He cares. I wish he wasn't so far away (I live in Powell, TN) but honestly, I am ok to make that drive to see him. I think he is great and I'd certainly recommend him!
