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.
