6/28/22 Dr. Hamilton performed my hernia repair surgery. 9/2/22 he then had to perform a gallbladder removal surgery. He did absolutely amazing on both surgeries. Walked me through how each procedure would go and what to expect post op. Very professional, kind, and an overall outstanding surgeon!!!! Recommend him 10 fold for surgery.

Dr Hamilton performed surgery on me as an infant in 1998. This surgery saved my life, so thanks for that! 10/10

DR Hamilton is a very kind, caring physician that has been my doctor for 14 years. He never rushes to surgery but instead tries every other possible treatment. When surgery is necessary I am never afraid knowing he is in charge of my care. We need more doctors like Dr Hamilton.
