Dr. Hammerberg is an angel. Compassionate, gifted, dedicated. All the traits a doctor should have. He gave my daughter her life back and she's doing incredible after her spinal surgery. The staff made us feel right at home. Thank you!

Office staff was excellent. Appointment was easy to schedule, they were very helpful. Dr. Hammerberg either was too busy for us, or just was in a bad mood that day. Left both my wife and daughter in tears with his cold demeanor. Why are you even here! He barked at them before even saying hello. I guess he thought we were wasting his time. Well he won't have to worry about that ever again. Offered no help whatsoever. Complete waste of our time, but we didn't treat him like crap..
