Accepting new patients

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

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.

I had to wait a bit to see Dr. Hammons but the wait was worth it. She was very thorough and took the time to explain everything. I feel as though I'm in excellent hands at Ochsner Slidell.

in Pearl River, LA |
Took over 3 months to get an appointment due to being a new patient because my previous PCP leaving Ochsner. This is the 3rd time I have had to get a new PCP due to physicians leaving. I can only to to Ochsner. Once I got to see her she rushed through my appointment. I am not a diabetic but she insisted on doing a foot exam for neuropathy. I had lab work on 11/29/2016 and it is now 12/24/2016 and I have yet to hear from her regarding my test results. But I have received my bill already.
