This is not an indictment of Shane but rather Yuma Dermatology the most screwed up, inefficient money mill of come across in a life time. Like many other offices like this it's run by 1 PA and scads of Med Techs, Shane drops buy for the money shots. They hound you over and over to confirm the same appointment. They ask for information they never read but ask over and over in the office. When the med tech comes to room she asks everything you just filled out over again. The one PA is a nice guy but in general the staff is not friendly at all. I ended up with a bruise from my eye all the way down my face an neck and the response was "sorry about that"! REALLY! Never return, never.

I saw Dr. Hamman for removal of a basal cell carcinoma on my upper lip right next to a mole. I didn't want to him to remove my mole because I thought I'd be deformed afterward. When he described the scar that would be left as "vertical", it freaked me out. This guy is an artist. While he was doing the surgery, he said "I'm doing all kinds of pretty things". What a skill a person would have to be able to work on something God made. I'm so grateful, not only for Dr. Hamman's skill but also his incredible artistic abilities. All my friends say "Holy Cow!! That doctor is an amazing plastic surgeon".

He is a nice person, but the scar created by his surgery is really nasty. Every time I look at my arm I get angry, and wish I had gone to a plastic surgeon...

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.
