As a nurse of 41 years I have seen and worked with many MD's. Dr Hammesfahr is the most impressive physician i have seen in decades. He is personable, easy to talk to and he explains things in a manner that is easily understood. His vast knowledge base of current treatments, both traditional and alternative, gives him the ability to provide the most appropriate treatment in every instance. I have witnessed his provision of care for others and was so impressed i chose him for my healthcare needs.

I was in a car accident and with having nerve damage Dr Hammesfahr was able to work me into his schedule. He was very through on getting me started on his treatment and I've seen major improvement with his treatment. He does know what he's talking about and makes sure you understand how and why his treatment will work. I recommend him to all my family and friends.

I want to say that Dr hammesfahr is a great doctor who diagnosed me and took his time with my care. I can't say enough about his bedside manor he really does care about his patients. Thank you so much for all you have done for me as a person. You have me hope all doctors are like you.

Dr. Hammesfahr is amazing! After having a stroke in 2016, every doctor pretty much said my nursing career was over. He took a whole person approach to my care with the goal of helping me regain the ability to function as a productive member of the healthcare family. He opened his office on a Saturday morning just to see me! I entered unable to say much more than "yes" or "no" or walk unsupported. I left able to speak small sentences and am now able to function near my prior level.

He was the only neurologist who understood the treatment for my stroke.. He was friendly and Truly listened to me. I highly recommended him.
