My Mom and I have used Dr. Hammett probably not to long after he got out of Medical School. He pulled my Mom through alot of COPD attacks and I highly recommend him to the world. She passed away in 2001 but he still has me as a patient. Can't say enough good things about him. Frances Newman, West Monroe, La.

I believe Dr. Hammett's skill and knowledge in pulmonology is unsurpassed. He has an excellent bedside manner and genuinely cares for his patients. He works well with everyone in his office which has almost no turnover in employees for the past 8 years. He always takes time to explain any treatment options, or procedures he feels are necessary in our care as well as answer any questions we may have. He is highly respected among his peers. He is loved by the nurses and respiratory at Glenwood
