I had carotid study with tech first. Yes I did wait a bit longer to see dr, but I am totally fine with that. Dr. Hammer takes time with him patients. He has never rushed through a visit. I can fully "open up" to him and he has such respect. I'm sure he's like that with all pts.

My husband and I both really like Dr. Hammer. He always listens to me and gives me clear answers to my questions. He seems to really care for his patients. In the past, he has researched the safety of a therapy I was asking about and personally called me to discuss his opinion. I am glad he is my doctor.
