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!
