What a great experience! The nurse went over my history and everything, then I went to Dr. Hammer's office to sit and talk with her. I liked talking about my personal problems in an office setting, where I didn't feel vulnerable or judged. After the office, I was brought back to the room where Dr. Hammer and the nurse did the routine. I've never been checked by two people, so at first I didn't feel any privacy. But, they both had great bedside manner and made sure I was comfetorable (as comfetorable as one could be in that situation). Because I don't have insurance, my prescription was resiculously high. They were very helpful and called in several different things to two different pharmacies to help me find what was affordable. By far the best OBGYN I've ever been to!

She was incredible! So nice and very caring. I will most definitely make her my permanent ob/gyn. I have never been so comfortable with an ob/gyn, it wasn't awkward and she was not condescending like most ob/gyns.

I went on a day that was not very busy and I was seen right away. Jo Bess Hammer was highly recommended to me by a coworker and I will continue to be a patient of hers. I went for a routine visit but also discussed with her some more serious topics. She was compassionate and more than helpful. For a wonderful experience, you must go to Jo Bess Hammer. MUST!

Dr. Hammer was very pleasant, professional, and comfortable for me to work with. I am a senior and it was a pleasure to have a mature doctor. She answered my questions and explained the procedure she was conducting in time for me to be prepared for "cramps," She expressed sincere condolences for a recent death in my family that I mentioned when she was taking history.

Its the second review by me. My first one was for the type of persona she is and her bed side manners as a human and a doctor. this time, I am glad to tell my problems got cured. even her smile is enough to make you feel great. Once you go there, you won't feel like going any where. May God bless her

I usually dont get time to come and drop any reviews; but this visit of mine was so pleasantly surprising that I wanted to come here and write down something for her. I have rarely seen doctors like Dr. Hammer; kind, smiling, considerate, great listner and like a soothing tonic. She took time to explain everything and her smile didnot leave her even on my stupid questions. I was much worried to visit her because there were no reviews here. But the moment she started talking, all fears faded away and I felt confidence in her. Really loved the way she treats her patients and cures their ailness.
