Proud of East Texas: Dr. James Hamilton

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

Dr. James Hamilton has been practicing medicine in Overton for 56 years. When he began his practice in 1957, he charged from $50-$75 for delivery of a baby, and that included all the visits.

At the age of 86, Hamilton calls himself a "dinosaur" because he doesn't belong to any HMO's or PPO's.  But he also says he never turns a sick baby or child away, regardless of the type of insurance or lack of coverage.

Hamilton says he didn't get into medicine to get rich, he got into it to help people. Dr. Hamilton's office is located at 304 North Motley in Overton.
