Dr. Hammons' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hammons "I became a family doctor because I love the variety and challenge of treating all ages and conditions. I also enjoy developing a long term relationship with my patients and becoming part of that patient’s team working to improve his or her health. I am a proponent of patient education and empowerment and love teaching my patients how they can improve their own health. I have been a Board certified family medicine clinician since 2002. I am a native of New Orleans and proud to practice in the city I love."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hammons "Patient-centered health care is the cornerstone of my practice. If all our efforts at Ochsner Slidell Clinic are made with the benefit of the patient first and foremost then we are working in the right direction.  Patients have the right to be well informed about their health and empowered to make the best decisions to impact their health and treatment.  Educating patients about a disease, preventative care, or treatment options is a big priority in my practice.  I value the input and preferences of each patient and consider the patient’s priorities in our ultimate plan for better health.  Communication is key to improving the quality of outcomes and is something for which I am always striving to be most effective."
