I have nothing but respect and faith in Dr. Hamad. She has performed three surgeries on me - I chose her as my surgeon even though it meant an 1 1/2 hr drive. Dr. Hamad explains everything clearly and will answer any questions asked. After my first surgery I knew I had the best doctor available;therefore when I had to have two more surgeries for unrelated reasons - I chose her again. I feel very relaxed, safe and I have no problem trusting her with my life (literally). I will always choose her as my surgeon!
