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...more
