Dr. Hammer is amazing. He goes above and beyond to provide professional, caring and kind help whenever I need him. He diagnosed a rare condition immediately and was able to provide relief and the right medication right away. Kudos!

He is the best doctor there is .The most concerned and really human person not a busy "DOCTOR" but a great man who you can tell really knows you and feels for you.

My visit with Doctor Hammer was hands-down the best visit I've ever had with a doctor. Dr. Hammer is attentive, caring, friendly...there are not enough positive adjectives to describe him. He gave me 100% of his attention and spoke to me in a way that wasn't "doctor-like." We had a nice, long appointment, and I feel like if I needed even more time, he would have given it to me. I never felt rushed. He was genuinely interested in my symptoms and talked through all my treatment options, in detail. He let me play an active role in my treatment - presenting the options, telling me what he thought was appropriate, then asked MY thoughts on what I wanted to do. I could seriously go on for for hours about what a positive experience I had, and how great Dr. Hammer is. My condition doesn't require a follow-up, but I wish he was a primary-care physician so I could see him again!

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.
