Dr. Hammett is great! Explains & answers any questions. He really cares about his patients. I'm being treated for cervical dystonia. Waiting time can be a little long, but I wouldn't want him to rush with me, so I understand the wait time.
He is the only neurologist I have been too that actually listened to my symptoms, and tried to individualize my treatment. He is the only neurologist in Columbia, SC I would recommend.

Dr. Hammett is one of the best neurologist in the Southeast and will go far and beyond for any of his patients.

He kept me waiting 2.5 hours for my appointment while he talked on the phone as reported by his nurse. He gave me trigger point injections and when I had a reaction to them they would not respond to email or phone messages. I was told it would work itself out. If you can't reach a doctor when the procedure goes badly you should not use that doctor. Lesson learned.

Dr Hammett empathizes with all of his patients. There may be a wait to see him but it is due to the fact that he spends time with his patients to come up with the best treatment plan.
