      I love Dr Hammond she is the best surgeon ever. She is trustworthy and just amazing. I'm truly going to miss her. She shows great compassion for her patients. She saved my life by giving me a lieostostmy in 2012 then in December it was suppose to be reversed. When she got in there it wasn't time she had great compassion when she told my parents and me. Then in May 2013 it was reversed. I have seen her three years now still bag free.

      Dr. Hammond has been a wonderful Dictor. She has always been professional with a great bedside manner. I'll eventually have to have surgery again one day soon and I can honestly say I feel extremely comfortable with Dr. Hammond as that Doctor!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
