I saw Dr. Hammesfahr for a torn ACL during my most recent visit, but have seen him for many other things throughout the years. My experiences have all been very good. The staff is very knowledgeable about insurance when I ask lengthy questions bc my insurance has changed several times. My check-in goes very quickly and I wait about 10-15 min. before going back. Dr. Hammesfahr is always in my room within about 10 min. Not long at all. He is very patient when I ask him to go through options

Recently my son and I were both treated by Dr. Hammesfahr and received excellent care. He took a great deal of time explaining the injury, and was not quick to recommend surgery, but instead used physical therapy which worked in both instances. We appreciated him not rushing to the idea of surgery. He couldn't have been more thorough, and the front office staff were all very nice. We have gone to Dr. Hammesfahr for many things throughout the years and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Hammesfahr is one of the best surgeons I have seen in a long time, so if other people are dissatisfied it is because of them. The only reason I ever had to wait is if there was an emergency worse than mine, and if you can't be patient when someone else is in pain I feel sorry for you... He has done miracles with patients that I never thought would ever be right again so I would totally see him...

I have been a patient of Dr. Hammesfahr's for at least 25 years. There is NO OTHER surgeon I would trust with my family and friends (all who have been extremely satisfied and grateful for the recommendation). Dr. Hammesfahr's reassuring and gentle manner are so comforting, and he takes his time to fully explain the injury and what is necessary to heal those injuries. Even though I have to drive about an hour to get to him, it is worth it!
