Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hammerstrom "When I finished medical school I did my residency training at a busy county hospital in California that prepared doctors to work in rural areas, training us to treat any patient that might come through the door, including babies, children, middle-aged people and the elderly. This is still what I enjoy in medicine. I have a special interest in diabetes, depression and skin problems, including skin cancer. In the Colorado Springs community I serve on the school board of Evangelical Christian Academy. I also am a member of the board of Mountain View Medical Group."

Patient Comments (2)
in Spokane Valley, WA |
My wife and I are not used to the rude mannerisms that are displayed by Dr. Hammerstrom at all. We were both raised better than to treat people like animals, like reflected by Dr. Hammerstroms bed-side manner. He is supossed to be a Family doctor but yet he makes decisions, like adjusting medicines your on, that were prescribed by a specialist, without consulting me or the specialist. He also never listens to you while you're in the exam room with him, the laptop is more important.

If you like your doctor to be robotic and cold, this is your guy. He has one facial expression, does not smile nor pretend to care. Every time I've seen him he acts like he is in a rush to get you out of there and is just there for his paycheck. Beyond his poor demeanor he is also not very attentive to your records. as a new patient, he never asked me why I was taking the medication I was on, how it was working, or offer to refill it, I had to ask for a refill as he was rushing out the door.
