About Elaine L. Hamilton, MD, FAAP

  • Dr. Hamilton’s family was in the Air Force and was stationed in several places before the family moved to San Antonio when she was 12. In her free time, Dr. Hamilton enjoys hiking, cycling, cooking, and baking. She is married with three adult children and “one good dog.”

At three years old, I said I was going to be a doctor when I grew up, and I never changed my mind. I was the oldest of seven children and enjoyed taking care of babies. I love watching them grow and develop unique personalities, and in doing so, I touch the future. I have the honor and privilege of participating in the miraculous unfolding of a new life, from birth to adulthood. I forge relationships with families, share the joys of their parenting journey, and support them through the challenges. I love my job!

    Great experience from check in, doctor visit and with X-ray techs. Thank you for making a scary moment for my daughter a peaceful and easy experience.

    I don’t recall the MA or the Dr introducing themselves during the appointment at all, and think this is always good to do.

    The Dr wasn’t very friendly or patient for a pediatric setting.
