During follow-up visit, he did not even review my file to see that I had already had imaging results. He did not even look at my file to see what medications I was currently taking. Allegedly I was to start anothercourse of treatment within a couple of weeks and the office would call me to schedule the procedure. It has been six weeks and that has not happened. It was a Friday afternoon and I was the last patient, I am sure he just wanted to get home; in fact, the receptionist stated when I checked-in (early I might add) "thank goodness, you are the last patient." I will NOT be returning.

Came in and received an X-ray for my knee. After that, Dr. Hampton came in to evaluate my knee and listened to my issue. I didn't feel rushed and felt he took the proper amount of time to evaluate me. Iwould 100% go back to Dr. Hampton if he was still In-network.

Dr. Hampton lacked empathy for my pain and did not order an MRI to fully diagnose my issue. Just X days. I explained how I actually hurt my knees jumping rope but seems fixated on arthritis. He wanted me to doa month of expensive physical therapy and when I declined - he refused to to write a note. I have been in excrustiating pain for 5 weeks and I feel his focus was limited. I will be trying another orthopedist because my pain is very very real.

He did his job. Going step by step with my treatment. Surgery is a last option even though he is a surgeon!!! Yay!!! I have more appointments to come so I gave the 4 star recommended probably option, hopefully after gettingto know him better as a doctor I'll be giving him 5 stars. It took 30 mins to be taken to the back because the paperwork took that long.

he has the compassion of an alligator. I finally found a good doctor who actually listened to me. I had a shoulder impingement. This doc just looked at me, told me I had "frozen shoulder" and said I would "just haveto live with it" for the next year to 18 months. I was in agony. He never did an MRI, just "looked" (barely) at my shoulder. He was just there to collect his money from the insurance carrier. Period.

I had a great first experience there. Everyone had a good attitude. It wasn't crowded and I didn't have to wait long to be taken to the back, and for the doctor to come see me. In the future, whenever Ineed an orthopedic doctor, I'll be sure to make an appointment with Dr. Hampton!

I appreciate Dr. Hampton so very much for providing excellent surgical care. I now have to remind myself I had reconstruction surgery 7 months ago on my ACL! My recovery has been nothing short of miraculous! The entire staff supporting Dr.Hampton is outstanding. Kind and efficient. I'm so grateful to be strong on my feet today. Thank you!

I appreciated Dr. Hamilton professional attitude and approach to reviewing my medical case. His questions were on point, and he advised me of the steps that should be taken for my knee condition. I would recommend Dr. Hampton as a fully qualified, board certified and caring orthopaedic surgeon.

Pleasant bed side manner. Uses a conservative approach to care rather than just jumping in to the need for invasive treatment modalities or surgery. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful.

He came into the room and got straight to the point. My face to face encounter with him lasted 4 minutes. I am accustom to at least 15 minute encounters with other specialist. Dr. Hampton, FYI, when you do this itonly makes you look like you're in it for the money. Can't wait to see my bill.

Dr. Hampton himself was very nice but the wait to see him was ridiculous. I was running late and arrived 5 minutes before my appointment--they were not kidding about having 20 minutes of paperwork to do as a new patient! Givenall the paperwork, I figured my appointment time would be slightly delayed, but I ended up waiting almost TWO HOURS to be seen, so make sure you're on time.
