Impressive doctor and practice - thorough, takes time with patients, clearly very competent. I've been a patient for many years and the consistency of staffing speaks volumes to the quality of care. I was referred by doctors who consider him "the best".

Had an excellent experience with Dr. Hammers and his staff. He is very personable and extremely skilled in his area of expertise. I had to have a fine needle aspiration of thyroid nodules. It was a totally quick and painless procedure. He and his staff thoroughly explain the proceedure putting you at ease, and within minutes you are done and free to go. Very positive experience, and very efficiently run office as well.

I couldn't have had a better experience. The doctor was incredibly knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions. It's also nice to feel like the doctor isn't trying to send you for unnecessary tests and/or procedures.
