Have been seeing Dr. Hammond for over 15 years. My wife and I have always been pleased with her as she has always taken special care of us both. She has been concerned about treating our eyes and making sure we are satisfied with her diagnosis.

Dr Hammond is an Optometric Physician. I have put my trust in her for quite a few years, and I have never been disappointed with her care or the care of the Cataract Surgeon (Dr Soscia of Center for Sight) to whom she referred me.
