He chose the field of Family Medicine as a speciality and obtained his board certification at UPMC Altoona. Dr. Hampton has been a local family physician in the area since 2010. His decision to go into Family Medicine was based on his strong desire to help people achieve their optimal state of health and wellness. His colleagues have stated that he is a “people person”; he enjoys listening to the unique histories of each of his patients. Knowing the unique history of his patients allows him to develop a personalized approach for each patient. His training in Osteopathic Medicine emphasizes the mind, body, and spirit connection which he utilizes when treating patients. He believes an integrative approach to health is essential. This integrative approach can not only treat disease but also help prevent it.
