"Through word of mouth and a personal recommendation, I made appointments for my husband and I to see Dr. Heather Hamilton. We have since returned. We were very pleased with the care and attention we received, not to mention the fabulous results. Dr. Hamilton was warm, personable, unhurried and listened attentively. She appropriately followed up our concerns by offering professional opinions that reflected upon her solid clinical and academic/research experiences. She freely shared recent advances and current trends in her field. She is passionate about her work. In a sound and logical manner, Dr. Hamilton explained each option and what we were to expect in terms of reaching the desired outcome. She was explicit when it came to describing cosmetic procedures - beginning to end, step by step...no surprises! The results from the IPL treatment far exceeded my expectations! Friends and family are amazed when they see me. Dr. Hamilton is a gem of a doctor! An exceptional find!"

Rate MDs Reviewer - Five Stars

"Dr. Hamilton is a very kind person. She seem to be very thorough in her skin exam. She took a biopsy on one place I had been concerned and explained in detail what she was doing and then called and discussed the treatment plan. She seems very knowledgeable and is such a sweet gentle person as well."
