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.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Hammer. I had been referred by Dr. Wecht due to a cerebral aneurysm. I was very appreciative of the time given to access the situation, explain possible options, answer my questions, and assure me that he will provide follow-up. I would rate this as an excellent experience. I feel I have had excellent care from my primary care doctor and the specialists to which I have been referred since the onset of double vision (due to aneurysn) on June 9, 2015.
