“Earlier this year, I went to see Dr. Hamilton for extreme pain in my right shoulder. This has been an ongoing condition for approximately five years. I expected the need for some type of treatment but x-rays indicated the need for a complete shoulder replacement. I agreed to the treatment but was surprised to learn he was scheduled about five months out. I told him and his nurse that if that if there were any cancelations in his schedule that I would be ready to take the first available date. I received a call the next day informing me that there was an opening the following week and was given a list of labs and tests that were needed prior to surgery. Dr. Hamilton's office was extremely helpful in making all of those tests happen and I had surgery the following week. It went exactly as Dr. Hamilton explained and he went the extra mile to make sure both my wife and I understood the post surgery behaviors and expectations. Each follow-up visit has been very positive, with progress on range of motion and strength. I am very pleased with my diagnosis and treatment by both Dr. Hamilton and each of his staff members. I highly recommend SCOI for all orthopedic needs. I have seen Dr. Erfanian for another issue and was equally pleased with diagnosis and treatment.”
