Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hamman ""Excellent patient care is our goal.  Each patient is unique, and we strive to make a connection with each of them to provide the care that they need from medical management to surgical procedures.  With every patient and case, I think to myself, 'what would I do if this was my family member' and that motivates me to constantly work for perfection and to provide the most excellent surgical care I can.""

I feel I did receive the highest quality care. Dr. Hamman was very patient even when I had twelve biopsies the day of my surgery. He took time to explain and reassure me of the success. Thank you Dr. Hamman. Judy S.
