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."
