-Rushed 5 minute visit, after waiting 45 minutes. -Won’t renew prescribe contact lenses, even though he’s listed as an MD Ophthalmology Specialist. -Overcharged $15 more than original copay for the visit.

Better off going somewhere else – Mar 26, 2021
2nd time to see Dr. Hammonds, appts for both husband & myself. During Covid, patients crowded, some w/out masks, office loud, almost 1 hr wait. Eyes dilated, no explanation, had to drive 2 hrs, eyes unfocused, lucky to not have accident. Security guard at door wore mask under chin. Sent complaint letter, office lack of communication, finally paid bill, only to receive collection calls after pmt made. 5 calls to office, finally a business clerk found mistake. My acct credited with amt for husband's bill, he had balance. Clerk said she corrected, asked to speak to manager. Left voice mail and still waiting for response. Based on earlier experiences, it is unlikely I will get a response. Highly recommend potential patients seek health care elsewhere.

Office staff is unpleasant. Wait to see doctor is unacceptably long (over 45 mins) and at the end of the day not worth it to wait that long. Better to find a doctor and group that is happy to have new patients.

Monroe Township, NJ – Jul 14, 2017
I have an elderly mom who has a serious eye problem; we were referred to Dr Hammond from an eye institute in Miami, as supposedly Dr Hammond could handle her issue; so far out of the two appointments that Dr Hammonds office made they have cancelled BOTH, leaving my mom now waiting a MONTH with an issue that is seriously incapacitating. We are now forced to try to find another doctor that can handle her problem--and we're that much farther behind. Why make an appt if you're not able to keep it??
