What People Say About Dr. Paul Hammerness, MD

Reckless and arrogant. Misdiagnosed my child, over prescibed the wrong meds then left us with no way of reaching him. His response: He blamed us for going along with his treatment plan. Stand-offish and a little too cool, overall bad experience.

Very chilly if not robotic manner with kids and parents, and a rote, limited understanding of clinical issues and treatment. I expect he's better at research.

Extremely knowledgeable with children & teens with anxieties and ADHD. He has worked with my daughter for over 10 years and has been so diligent and compassionate with her care. He is extremely professional and competent, and seems to really understand and support his patients.
