I'll start by noting that the front desk staff and technicians are VERY friendly. They're super personable and accommodating. The office is also nice. However, I'm surprised by the good reviews of Hamway, himself. I found him to be quite demeaningto the staff and very pompous in his demeanor, like he was the King of the medical office. I don't like leaving negative reviews, and rarely do, but he made me so uncomfortable I felt it necessary. He seemed annoyed to be seeing me, and when I asked about side effects of a medication he said he didn't know, and then begrudgingly went to his phone to look them up. I mentioned that it was fine if he didn't have the time, and that I could do some of my own research and he quickly commented that his research would be much more accurate and any info I could find would probably be incorrect and out of date. ...Okay. Turns out the info I found on my own after the appointment made much more sense. Bed side manner was less than stellar. I don't know what this guy's deal was, but something was super off. He prescribed what I needed, but I left feeling pretty bad. Good luck!

The office staff and assistant were really friendly. I had to complete my medical history using a iPad kiosk - not a bad setup but it was lengthy using a Message Bot (which was annoying in my opinion). When Dr. Hamwaysaw me it felt as though I came at a bad time- which was a weird feeling to have. Also, my blood work had to be done offsite at a lab - which is inconvenient. Maybe it was a hectic day, but I’m not sure if I’ll go back.

Great visit! Dr. Hamway was very understanding and believed my concerns immediately. He ordered a test for me that I've needed for a while but was unable to get from my previous insurance provider.

Had to find a new PCP, what with moving to SF recently, and spun the roulette wheel on my health insurance web site. What a score! The little ball landed on Dr. Hamway and I definitely won. Nice guy, good senseof humor, casual and cool. Easy to relate to, TOTALLY understood my perspective and didn't have an agenda.
