Dr. Hemmer has done 2 of my children's tonsillectomies, nose ablation, daughter and husbands ear issues and will be fixing my sons broken nose. I trust his skills and knowledge. Dr Hemmer takes his time with you to explain the health issue at hand, listens and answers any questions. He is our forever ENT and the staff is super caring, nice and helpful.

Problem: serious sinus issues Short answer: outstanding physician! Long answer: I went to one Internist, who didn't do any exam and told me to use a Neti Pot. Another Internist looked in my ears and gave me a steroid spray. Needless to say, neither worked. I finally wised up and sought an ENT Specialist....Dr. Hemmer....hallelujah!

Severe hearing loss is a frustrating problem, to say the least. Thanks to Dr. Hemmer's skills, I not only can hear better, I also have gotten a handle on allergies affecting my nasal passages. His staff is kind and professional. I'm very grateful to Dr. Hemmer and also to his audiologist, Joe Pacer. Many thanks.

Our experiences with Dr. Hemmer have always been EXCELLENT! He and ALL his staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. They genuinely care for their patients. The exams are thorough and Dr. Hemmer clearly explains everything in detail, before, during and afterward.We drive from Marengo to ensure we have the BEST care available! Having been patients for 15+ years, we won't go anywhere else.

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Hemmer for over 20 years. When my parents came to live with us I took my Dad to Dr. Hemmer for hearing aids and Dr. Hemmer treated my Dad with the utmost respect as he was 93. We can not give enough praise to Dr. Hemmer as we can always get in to see him and he always takes the time to listen to what ails us, then takes care of us. He deserves 6 stars.
