I would highly recommend Dr Hammerberg for your orthopedic needs. He replaced my knee and all through the process he was just what I had hoped for. He, and the entire staff at Rose, made it as "painless" as possible.

great surgeon and the office will take excellent care of you all around. Although, Rose Medical Center really needs to work on their food which makes everything work. It has really gone down hill since my last admission in June 2018. No offense, Dr. Mark!

Dr. Hammerberg was very sweet and patient with me. He explained things so well and treated me with the upmost respect. I never felt pushed or rushed. He is very kind and made sure I received the best care from his staff and nurses in the hospital. He treated me like a family member. I feel very blessed to have such an excellent physician. My recovery from knee surgery has been very good. I am very pleased with my new knee.

Dr Hammerberg made me feel extremely comfortable in relationship to my first major surgery.....he took all the time I wanted to answer questions and offer detailed explanations of the procedure and everything to expect before and after. His team was exceptional in their care as well as their knowledge, too. Never having been to Rose, it would be the only place I would recommend, now! I anticipated far more pain then I ever experienced....heat another bonus!

I was experiencing occasional right hip pain, especially when I was doing hip-related stretching exercises, and went to Dr. Hammerberg for an evaluation. His office is very welcoming, and the person at the front desk was friendly and attentive. Dr. Hammerberg spent quite a bit of time with me and performed a thorough investigation. He asked many questions about my hip and listened carefully to the answers. He then took an X-ray and let me know definitively that the cause of my pain was clear—I

Mark is an incredible doctor, surgeon, and human. How many doctors prefer that you call them by their first name? It just speaks to how he views everyone he works with. In my mind, being a brilliant doctor is the cost of entry in his profession. What sets Mark apart is the way her interacts with you. He's smart, friendly, enthusiastic, and incredibly funny. It's disarming, stress relieving, and relaxing. Laughter is the best medicine, after all. I'd recommend mark to everyone. He's a gem.

After a cycling accident I saw Dr Hammerberg. He was thorough, asked great questions, completed a comprehensive exam. He brought up the x-rays and we reviewed them together. He recommended activities/exercises to speed my recovery. He was relaxed and spent a significant amount of time with me, ensuring that all my questions were answered and issues addressed. Highly recommend.

Very professional and prompt. Allowed me to fully participate in the care planning post fractures and I felt like he actually listened to me in such a way that I fully trusted his guidance.
