John Hamby, MD

Philosophy of Care

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 .
