Patient Comments (2)
Langhorne , Pa. |
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.
