Dr. Hammer is the worst doctor I ever went to. I lost sixteen pounds since my last visit and he told me I was a fat pig. Dr. Hammer should look in the mirror because he is not a thin doctor. He is very nasty and disrespectful towards pts. His staff are very disrespectful towards patients.

Dr. Hammer is an excellent physician. He does a careful and comprehensive intake interview. But the office conditions that surround his work are awful. The waiting time to see him at our first and only meeting was more than 2 hours. When I went to his office to keep our second appointment, I saw that the waiting room was again filled and that the waiting time would again be in hours. Then Caroline told me that the office had no record of my appointment! I walked out and will not be coming back.
