Dr. Hammond was caring, professional and thorough!!! When results came back he called to explaine them to me so I could understand and not over worry. I was so appreciative of his concern!!
in Grand Rapids, MI |
Very compassionate, took time to explain everything he saw
in Crystal, MI |
I would recommend Dr. Hammond as a dermatologist because his "bedside manner" is excellent, he is very thorough in his examinations and explains in words that a non-medical person can understand what the problem is and how to fix it.
in Shelby, MI |
Dr Hammond is very professional and comfortable to talk to. He takes the time to answer all your questions and a little small talk as well! I will go back in the future and highly recommend him to anyone who needs a dermatologist.
in Grand Rapids, MI |
I saw Dr Hammond within 10 minutes of my appointment. He was very informative as he did a head to toe scan for anything that he might be concerned about. Dr Hammond is very personable and takes time to talk to you before doing the scan. Makes you feel comfortable and at ease.

Awesome Doctor, great staff, highly recommend!
in Grand Rapids, MI |
Dr. Hammond is by far the kindest man I've ever met. He took so much time to explain to me what was going on with my skin and even took the time to address my other skin-related concerns that were not the reason for the appointment. The nurse was also so kind and went above and beyond to help me.
