“You’re an awesome surgeon. Passionate, caring, professional and talented. Thanks for being on of the greats.” – Anonymous


“Dr. Jamison is kind, caring and very thorough in explaining everything and answering questions. He called me the night before surgery to see if I had any questions. His work is excellent. I’ve had both hips done with absolutely no complications during or after. I’d recommend him, and have, to anyone.” – Kathleen Stewart
