Portland, OR – Jul 19, 2016
Dr Hammill is thorough, takes time to explain (and re explain) aspects and options of treatment. He was completely familiar with my history and current issue before my first appointment. He is top notch in his field, completely knowledgeable about cutting edge technology, pain management and the specifics of the medical condition.
