Dr Hammerle did 2 procedures on me, endoscopy & inserted a stent into the bilinary duct. 3 days later, I was in much pain, Hammerle said to get myself to the ER in Boise. Jaundice/liver infection, which caused him to put me under within 3 hours of arrival on Sunday, Labor Day weekend. I was hospitalized for 2 days until stable. I have has bilinary duct pain for 9 years, and he is the only Dr who has helped w/the pain. Smart,knowledgeable,direct,personable,takes time to explain.God send 4 me.

Dr. Hammerle is a great doc, personable, knowlegldgable, and thourough. I had an intake appointment with him, bloodwork, and an endoscopy. No personal follow up though. Results communucated through nursing staff. This would be fine, however, I have had difficulty getting a response to specific questions which is frustrating. I will contact again but that is a big hit to patient centered care Hense the 4 vs 5 stars. I am a busy person too andshould not have to make multiple calls to get answers.

Office as a whole seemed very efficient right up to my endoscopy by Dr. Hammerle for persistent heartburn. Afterward it is impossible to get answers about interpreting the results of the endoscopy (went over it afterwards but the versed and fentanyl (if I remember correctly) make you so absent minded you will need another consultation) diet, otc meds vs prescriptions, getting a prescription, how to proceed over how long to get relief, etc. Not one positive experience after the scope.
