Dr. Hamilton"s skill saved my life. His empathy and knowledge have helped over a very rough period.

Dr. Hamilton is a caring, intelligent, straightforward doctor. UPMC should count their blessings having him on their staff!

March 30, 2018

Dr. Hamilton met with me for a surgical consult in between performing surgeries on a very busy day . This was very impressive to me. I believe he really worked hard to accommodate me because he recognized I was from out of town. I greatly appreciated this! MaryEllen, his RN, was very professional, wise, and helpful as well. Thank you and kudos to both of them!

Outstanding Doctor and staff. Top notch in his field I'm sure of that. I was privileged to have him get me through this.

February 28, 2018

The entire staff is very good at what they do and are very respectful and polite.

February 14, 2018

Since Feb 2017 Dr Hamilton was the 3rd neurosurgeon seen through UPMC-he was the only one to recognize the severity of my condition. If it was not for Dr Zaretskya and Dr. Hamilton I may not be typing this response. Dr. Z is wonderful and the care and the surgical expertise provided by Dr Hamilton prevented the potential for permanent paralysis. I never leave the office unless I have had all questions and POC explained. Nothing but utmost respect and appreciation for the care provided to me.

February 14, 2018

Dr. Hamilton is a very experienced and wonderful surgeon. I would recommend him to everyone. He has a wonderful disposition and all around great person. Have nothing bad to say about him.

Dr Hamilton is really great but he starts talking about other things and I get off track from what I wanted to know. There are questions I have that were not brought up because I forgot about them.
