Excellent bedside manner and he did a good job explaining what he thought might be wrong with my knee. I’ve been trying to get help for this injury for a week. Today was the first time I felt I could trustmy doctor and that there might be a future that doesn’t involve limping and pain.

Dr. Hamilton is one of the most compassionate and caring orthopedists we have ever seen. He has always been wonderful with my 15 year old daughter and not only do we highly recommend him in general, but we highly recommend him for youth/teenager sports injuries.

My visit was very brief. The physician’s assistant spent more time with me determining my reason for visit. Dr. Hamilton wants to do a follow up after an MRI . Once I have a follow up appointment, I believe I’ll beable to have a better opinion with my experience. He was professional & friendly .

He was a typical Orthopedic. He went through the standard traditional phase of treatment. Unfortunately his diagnosis was cookie cuter and instead of listening to my concerns attempted to bring me to the standard treatment of PT. Unfortunately, I was not impressed and will most likely not go again

This was my initial visit with Dr. Hamilton. His PA met with me first. I then had an x-ray, and Dr. Hamilton then met with me. He discussed my symptoms with me, reviewed the x-rays, and told me what he thoughwas causing my pain. He mapped out a plan that included medication, physical therapy, and follow up to see my progress. The PT will be in the same building. I'm very pleased with this first appointment.

Dr. Hamilton was great. I would recommend him, but the wait time was excessive. We arrived 15 minutes early as requested and didn’t see the doctor until one hour after we first arrived.

I really enjoyed my appointment! The staff that worked with me in the exam room was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The student was also very nice. The PA seemed very precise and informative. I did not like or agree with themannerisms of the front desk staff, especially the working for a healthcare office myself. They were very rude and snarky.

Second time seeing him, third time going to Beacon - he completely forgot my history, recommended an MRI even though I already had one, changed his interpretation of my MRI after finding it, and completely changed his course of treatment recommendationbecause he didn’t read my medical history before my first appointment. Very disappointed because now I have to see a rheumatologist before he will do anything more to help - something I could’ve easily done over the past month since seeing him last. A waste of a copay!

I recently tore my Achilles tendon at Kings Island and my main concern is being able to get back to normal life. Dr. Hamilton displays a very high level of professionalism, knowledge, and bedside manner. He took the time to objectivelyexplain our options and answer our questions. I feel confident I am in the best hands and fortunate to be under his care.
