Not satisfied - still in pain

Standard procedure was quick 2 quick visits from unidentified assistants followed by brief time with Doctor. All very efficient - was never in office more than 10-15 min, but always seemed rushed. On two occasions, I thought Dr was coming back and had to try and get him back for additional questions. On my last visit, I told him that my physical therapist recommended dry needling, but I didn't know much about the procedure. He was re-assuring by saying "that's a good idea, I've had that done, I'll write order for that", but never did explain what the procedure was, and what benefits I might expect. I thought he would do so when he returned with the order. Instead, the order came with one of the assistants. When I asked to see Dr again to answer questions, I instead got assistant #2, who admitted that he didn't know much about the procedure. Dr Hamilton may be good surgeon (although I am still in worse pain 4 months post-op: still looking for cause), I don't think he listens well to patients and seems to have very limited treatment toolkit when things don't work out as planned.

I appreciate everything Dr. Hamilton and his staff have done for me. I dealt with a laberal tear in my right hip for 3 years and he took great care of me. I work for a local hospital and would recommend Beacon and Dr. Hamilton to anyone.

Not a bad thing to say

Dr. Hamilton has such wonderful bedside manner. He takes the time to make sure you understand your diagnosis and treatment plan. And he always gives options, never just jumps to surgery. He is wonderful with injections as well. You can truly tell he cares for his patients.

THE sports med guy in KY

I've been running and playing basketball and volleyball for about thirty years now. I've seen the gammit of sports docs here locally in KY and none of them hold a candle to Dr. Hamilton. He is without a doubt the best in the region.
