The man is just plain awesome.
I wasted several years with Hamlett. I finally switched doctors and my new doctor changed my thyroid medicine and other things. I now have energy and feel like I have my life back! My new doctor doesn't dismiss me and tell me to go run around the block. I couldn't believe Hamlett's rudeness. I had many tear-filled appts with him. He lacks compassion. I thank the Lord daily, for my new doctor, who truly cares about the health of his patients. With Hamlett, I wasn't getting any better

Worst endro ever. Switched Dr.s and my blood sugar is now under control. I did not realize how poor of care I was receiving until I found my new endroconologist. Beware!

I have had many great Endos over my 30+ years of being diabetic. Dr. Hamlett is a straight shooter and tells you how it, good and bad. Most importantly he celebrates the good as much as he tells you how to fix the bad.

Dr has taken control, ordered tests needed to find or diagnose condition.. has a plan, very knowledgeable and professional.

Dr. H reported that he follows current practice guidelines re. treatment of hypothyroidism. He clearly doesn't. He cites Harvard and current treatment guidelines in stating that only TSH level (not T3 T4 eg.) should be used in determining whether Synthroid should be used. He stated that some people with normal TSH levels think they feel better on Synthroid, and that he won't take them off if they come to him for treatment, but clearly Synthroid tx is not the reason.VERY outdated in tx approach
