Dr. Hammer reviewed my medical history and listened carefully to the current problem. Understood that my regular ophthalmologist was on vacation and this was to address a current medical problem.

The wait time was long, but both staff and doctor were courteous and helpful. The office is kind of busy since they offer vision care service (glasses and lenses) as well. Parking is available under the building but you pay for it.

Dr Hammer is very attentive and answers questions clearly and concisely. He also explains the reasoning behind his actions thoroughly with you. I haven't felt rushed by him in any of the appointments I've made, either.

Dr. Hammer was very courteous and attentive. He seemed to actually listen to what I had to say and didn't talk to me like I was an idiot. He clearly and concisely communicated with me and was very helpful. I didnot feel rushed in any way. However, the wait time to see him was rather long (about 40 minutes counting the time the tech was with me doing some diagnostic tests). I'm going to chalk it up to him taking the time to listen to every one of his patients and make sure he has helped them as much as he can before he moves on to his next patient.
