great doctor-extremely good at explaining things in terms a layman can understand and relate to.

No assistant or nurse present. Dr. Hammer came to waiting room and escorted me to examining room. He talks, listens, jokes when appropriate and is very knowledgeable and up to date with my health condition. Very professional but relaxed and comfortable atmosphere during entire visit.

Dr. Hammer and his staff are the best there is.Beyond the questions you asked, his office is the most efficient I have ever seen.There is usually no back up,every one bends over backwards to do whatever they can for your request,kindness to a fault.
