Dr Hamel always shows a true interest in my concerns and problems in my Granddaughter's life. She always gives a 100% on helping me help my Granddaughter. Dr Hamel is a "one of a kind" Doctor with all the time and understanding she gives in the visit. She is a true treasure and I could never say enough nice things about her. She's a Doctor that as soon as you walk in the room you love her and that has never changed in the almost 5 years I have known her. My Granddaughter smiles and feel comfortable the whole time she visits with Dr Hamel....and Dr. Hamel is the only Doctor that my Granddaughter acts like that around.
