Dr. Hammer diagnosed my Dad’s cancer. He felt he would be better served by another physician for treatment. He called the office himself and set everything. He has kept in touch to monitor how thunderstorms are going. I highly recommend him.

I suddenly could not hear out of my right ear. I made an appointment with Dr. Hammer and had to wait a few days. I used Debrox in that time to soften wax. He quickly diagnosed the problem, irrigated my ear, and had me take a hearing test all in the same visit. Great job!! I can hear again.

Dr. Hammer is very knowledgable and kind. He performed sinus surgery on me a month ago, and has been very available to my questions as I continue to recover. I would highly recommend him.
