I believe in hon­est, straight­for­ward com­mu­ni­ca­tion where my patients under­stand all aspects of their med­ical care and is cen­tered around the physi­cian and patient rela­tion­ship. I uti­lize con­ser­v­a­tive non­op­er­a­tive treat­ment when pos­si­ble and care­ful mod­ern min­i­mal­ly inva­sive sur­gi­cal tech­niques when oper­a­tive inter­ven­tion needed.

"Dr Hamby was very courteous, friendly and professional. He listened to me describe my symptoms, examined me and determined very quickly what my problem was. He then described how he would correct the problem, and what was involved in the operation to correct my problem. He answered all of my questions and informed me of what to prepare for prior to the operation and the procedures to follow after surgery, as well as a follow up meeting to see how the area is healing. He is very informative and has excellent patient rapport."
