Dr. Jason Hamilton has changed my life! Ever since I was very young I’ve had excessive bags underneath my eyes. They got worse as I got older and there was absolutely nothing I could do about them! Even with 12 hours of sleep, countless creams, and Preparation H, the puffiness in my eyes wouldn’t subside, and I was constantly asked if I was tired. I was blessed to have discovered Dr. Hamilton through a referral. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon. He is so professional and kind, his attention to detail and attentiveness far exceeds what is expected. He does not over look any of your needs.
Thank you Dr. Hamilton for your amazing work, your friendship, and for me a new life!
