Dr. Hammoud combines a warm, yet no-nonsense manner with quick, smart analysis that gets to the essence of a diagnosis. I spent 15 minutes with Dr. Hammoud and felt that she provided the most reasoned, sound course of recovery for my rotator cuff tendinitis.

I am so grateful for Dr. Sommer Hammoud and I would highly recommend her. I not only completely tore my ACL, but also had a completed tear on my MCL and Dr. Hammoud did a great job. Not only did the surgery run smoothly, but she made me feel calm and confident throughout this whole process. After the surgery, she was constantly there for me and readily available to address all of my questions and concerns. She truly supported me throughout all of it and I cannot thank her enough.

She know exactly what was wrong on my first visit and had a plan of action. I immediately knew I was in good hands. She called me a few days after the surgery to make sure everything was fine and I didn’t need anything. Her staff is excellent especially Kelsey. Highly highly recommend.

Dr. Hammoud is a SuperStar physician! I receive great care from her and eveyone at Rothman going back to my surgery in June 2008 w/Dr. Raikin. I recommend Rothman to anyone needing state of the art orthopaedic care.

Terrible surgeon. Worse doctor. Only cares about her patients during working hours M-F and then only if they just say yes Ma'am.

I was assigned Dr Hammoud as a workers Comp patient, for my knee. That being said even after I had the opportunity to go to my own Dr. After my required 90 period, I did not!! Dr Hammoud is not only a great Dr, put a great personality , never rushes through your appointments like you're another number. I have even brought my Wife, Son and daughter back to Dr.Hammoud for treatment

I was lucky to have Dr. Hammoud for my visit to Rothman. After an XR and review of my MRI, we discussed my knee injury and her diagnosis put me at ease as I knew I was in good hands. I would recommend her as her clinician and patient interaction skills are excellent.

Dr. Hammoud is amazing. Within a matter of seconds, she knew what the issue was with my shoulder and how to address it. Dr. Hammoud's personality is very patient-centric - she took the time to explain things to me and made me very comfortable. I have recommended her numerous times and will continue to do so.

I was supposed to have another surgeon rebuild my knee at the hospital where I was taken, but I prefer the expertise at Rothman, so backed out of surgery there and chose Dr. Hammoud. She was unknown to me, but I trusted Rothman to hire only the best. She performed my surgery with students watching and learning; a good sign. My experience with her was first-rate. She communicated thoroughly, was accessible when I had questions, and followed through to the end with a sincere interest.

Dr Hammoud was very attentive to my needs. She listened to my concerns and gave great feedback. She made sure that I was comfortable from the time I met her to the time my surgery was complete. Her team was awesome as well and very attentive. I would recommend her and her team 10 times over.
