Dr. Goldhammer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Goldhammer "I have dedicated my entire life to medicine. I work daily to help people recover their health and to reduce any suffering. I have practiced medicine for over 20 years and I am an ongoing learner. I am grateful for the amazing and various people I have met through this time. What I value most are the relationships that I have established. Although my encounters with my patients are typically for brief periods of time, I do get to know my patients while they are hospitalized. Since I care for people who are very sick my goal is always to get them well as quickly as possible and have them returned to their primary care physician well and on the road to recovery."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Goldhammer "The care I provide involves learning each patient's medical history, clear communication with the patient, the patient's family when I can and with all other caregivers involved with this patient during their acute illness.  Thoughtful, detailed and up to date with modern medicine personalized care is my goal with every patient. "
