I have been a patient of Dr. Hamilton since around September 15, 2008 when I was transferred from ICU to BIR with tetraplegia as a result of West Nile Virus.She still cares for me 8 years later due to multiple complications. I have had 2 more stints in BIR as a result of nasty falls due to my chronic balance problems and because Dr. Hamilton knows me so well, she has ensured that I was assigned compatible in-patient/out-patient PT, OT, Speech, and other ancillary health care providers.
