Patient Comments (3)
Ogden, UT |
Had cataract surgery on both eyes done by Dr. Hammond. I was a bit nervous at first but his staff, the surgical center and Dr. Hammond made the experience so comfortable and absolutely pain free. The surgical center is intimate and you are not rushed. I have had very good results and highly recommend Dr. Hammond!

Very bright, well trained in advanced methods. Very caring about outcomes

They did't tell me they didn't take my insurance, so now I have a huge bill. They are rude on the phone when I can get through, and don't return my calls when I leave messages
