Dr. Hamm is the best! He spent a lot of time with me, went over my CT scans in great detail, and devised an appropriate, cautious follow up plan.

Wouldn’t recommend. May have knowledge from experience but has a deadening bedside manner and can be quite abrupt. Doesn’t seem have the wherewithal to reach out to other colleagues for second opinions - thinks it’s asking too much. Basically this is a doctor who thinks he knows it all and is unsympathetic to patients and family once he’s made his diagnosis. See someone else.
