      Dr. Hammond is amazing. He is very kind and soft spoken. His staff is busy but they get the job done! I would definitely recommend this office!
      in Ogden, UT |
      WILL NOT RECOMMEND EVER!!!! WORST STAFF I HAVE EVER KNOWN IN MY LIFE! RECEPTIONIST OR WHATEVER SHE IS, IS RUDE AND DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU AS AS INDIVIDUAL OR A PATIENT. IF YOU CAN, SEE A DIFFERENT DR!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
