in Kaysville, UT |
My husband was admitted to Ogden Regional after being brought by ambulance to the ER. After only a cursory exam, Dr Hammond told me that my husband had dementia with sundowners and that if he were his dad, he would just take him home. This was a terrible diagnosis for our family! My husband was later diagnosed with a brain infection and pneumonia. He recovered and was transferred to Pineview Rehab. Dr Hammond should never have given us this extremely wrong diagnosis on such a short visit.

Dr Hammond is good; his MA Trista is the worst I've ever seen. Never answers your calls, messages would go unanswered for weeks; would forget to schedule your tests; wouldn't give you its results; would screwed up with insurance with a bill over $2k-she'd say it's your responsibility to take care of it. Very small person, figuratively speaking; rude disrespectful unprofessional; treats you on her level-like dirt. Being an MD, I'd fire her in heartbeat with the worst recommendations she deserves
in West Point, UT |
THE VERY WORST TREATMENT BY A STAFF I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! CANNOT BELIEVE HE IS EVEN IN BUSINESS. READING OTHER REVIEWS HERE, CONFIRMS HOW BAD HIS STAFF IS. THE RECEPTIONIST OR SECRETAY OR WHAT EVER SHE IS, WOW WHAT A HORRIBLE PERSON. HAMMIND AND THE P.A. ARE JUST AS TERRIBLE. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH, ONLY HOW TO FATTEN THEIR POCKETS.
in Layton, UT |
Dr. Hammond reviewed my prognosis to confirm my treatment accuracy. He was very thorough and took the time to ask many questions.
Montgomery, AL |
Follow-up in a timely matter - or at all, does not happen with this clinic. Ask three people and always get three different answers. You do understand that you are dealing with individuals health and they are paying you to do so? I would suggest a reevaluation that your "phone calls" and "giving results" are not just a call sheet but actual people. Feel like Ogden Clinic is just in it for the money, as many tests and procedures that you can push without finding cause of issue.

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 Salt Lake City, UT |
The office environment is clean but the staff in not friendly at all..MA is very rude and not easy to talk or to schedule on appointment.
