About Me

As a board certified cardiologist and clinical cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. George Hamrick specializes in treating arrhythmias, including heart palpitations, rapid heartbeats and slow heart rhythms. This includes the implantation of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, the implantation of bi-ventricular devices for cardiac resynchronization therapy, and performing surgical procedures on the electrical system of the heart. Impressively, Dr. Hamrick was the first heart surgeon in Wake County to implant a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), and he performed this procedure here at WakeMed.

Born in Falls Church, Va., Dr. Hamrick joined WakeMed’s cardiology team in 1995. He was drawn to this organization’s commitment to the patient and family, including the continuous investments WakeMed makes in new technology, state-of-the-art facilities and adding to the team new specialists, who bring new areas of expertise.

“WakeMed has always been committed to building and maintaining the best Heart Center. We have an outstanding staff as well as superior facilities, mobile transport services and 24/7 emergency services that are especially important for heart attack and arrhythmia patients,” explained Dr. Hamrick. “We are dedicated to always being here for our patients and this community, as well as working together as a team to ensure our patients always receive the best care possible. For these reasons, WakeMed is where I bring my own family for care.”

Dr. Hamrick and his wife, Dr. Terri Hamrick, have two children. They live In Cary, N.C. Outside of medicine, Dr. Hamrick enjoys hiking and swimming with his family, and attending the symphony and theatre (Broadway).

Dr. Hamrick is amazing and so kind. He cares deeply about his patients and goes out of his way to ensure that they are under great care. The nursing staff and the office staff are equally amazing and very customer focused. I will be switching my primary care to WakeMed because of this experience. Thank you for all you do.

As a long-time patient, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hamrick. He is an excellent doctor and one of my personal heroes. He was on call when I had a life-threatening episode of [] and went to WakeMed ER in []. His expertise in treating the emergency saved my life and his calm manner helped to relieve my fear. He has managed my cardiac condition so well that I have had no serious issues since the [] incident and I am currently not taking any medication for my heart. My latest appointment at the Six Forks Road Office once again validated my esteem for Dr Hamrick as a physician who really cares for his patients. His staff at the Six Forks Road Office and at the WakeMed Heart Center also exhibit proficiency and personal attention in their dealings with patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Hamrick without hesitation to family, friends, or strangers on the street who have need of a cardiologist. He is the best.

.Dr. Hamrick agreed to see me within a few days following my call regarding a heart event that I felt needed his attention asap, seeing me on his surgery day that he doesn’t normally do office visits. I am so fortunate to have a doctor of his stature provide my heart health care!

10/29/2023

I had accompanied my mother to HER appt earlier in the day. Dr. Hamrick hesitated to move up my appointment as he was not certain how much of my personal information I share with my mother; he did not want to jeopardize my privacy. He is amazing to watch and be around...seems that he treats each person like they are the first person he has seen all day and like they are the only person that matters. I saw him at the end of the day and felt like I was treated this way.

10/29/2023

The relationship Dr. Hamrick has built with my mother over 30 years is invaluable. He always treats her like she is the MOST special person. When she says, "You better not think about retiring yet." He responds to her, "OK, if at 90, you plan on sticking around awhile!" They always share a smile and a chuckle. Such a gift this day and age.

10/02/2023

All of the staff was excellent. Check in and out both were very kind and helpful. Nurse and Dr Hamrick are great and handle all my questions.
