Outstanding visit. Dr Hamilton was very professional, pleasant and detailed in his review. Did not feel rushed. He obviously knows his field well and when we found some new issues he stayed with me until he was sure what must be done and arranged for me to see the retina specialist. He was substituting for my regular dr. but treated me like I was the most important patient and showed no inclination to hand me off to someone else

I recently moved to Arizona and extremely bummed that I will no longer be receiving medical care from Dr. Hamilton. My eyes were an issue from lasik surgery back in the early 2000's. He's taken care of me post corneal transplant and through cataracts. I've been taken care of since day one and very happy to experience such great care. My emotional state was up and down through the years dealing with my eyes and I can say I was never discouraged through his care. I felt like I could trust him and glad I did. He provides enough 1 on 1 time and explains everything thoroughly. Based off of my experiences, I highly suggest Dr. Hamilton's care.

My son recommended Dr. Stephen Hamilton and I am very thankful he did! I have been a patient of Dr. Hamilton’s for several years and have been extremely pleased with him as a doctor as well as the staff that works alongside him. I came to Dr. Hamilton with mild glaucoma, astigmatism in both eyes, extreme dry eye and the beginning of cataracts. Dr. Hamilton is extremely knowledgeable and has always taken the time to explain every situation, his recommendations and reasoning for them. Recently, Dr. Hamilton performed cataract surgery on both eyes with Symfony Toric lens replacement and inserted iStents in both eyes to treat the mild glaucoma and eliminate the use of eye drops. I now have 20/16 vision and my eyesight is amazing. I am so pleased with the results from the surgery and confidently recommend Dr. Hamilton as a well-trained, highly skilled eye doctor and surgeon.

Excellent. I'm 65 years old male, have had customary medical issues at my age, have had numerous physicians. I had Dr. Hamilton carry out two procedures over a 3 year period. He was professional, personable, responsive, which included a very efficient office that was supportive and helpful with my questions and concerns. I strongly recommend Dr. Hamilton with eye issues.

Absolutely the best! After consulting three other doctors, I decided to have Dr. Hamilton do the cataract surgery on both of my eyes. It turned out to be one of the best thing I have ever done to myself. I used to be very nearsighted and now I am 20/(30~40) and don't need to wear glasses. I highly recommend Dr. Hamilton, excellent professional skills! He is a very confident, very patient and caring person. He explained every single question/doubt I had, he never rushed, he has great bedside manner as well. The whole experience with Dr. Hamilton was a great pleasure. Thank you so much Dr. Hamilton!!

Really like Dr. Hamilton. He took time to show me test results on my eyes and explained what they meant. He told me he wasn't concerned, but would monitor them. He made sure to tell me if I had any concerns before my next visit to schedule an appointment.
