She was really good. I went to have my baby's ear cleaned, and she did it fast. The only complaint I have is that the person she called to help keep my baby's head still, did not use any hand sanitizeror gloves before putting her hands around my baby's face. However, the doctor was good.

The doctor was nice and caring. However, the office messed up with my appointment and kept us waiting for more than an hour. The doctor has to run between rooms to get us treated. Bad administration and coordination.

I am an adult, who didn't read the fine print to learn that she mostly works with children. She was very gracious and professional and fixed my problem. I would be glad to see her again and refer my friends to her.

I would highly recommend Dr.Hamming to anyone. She's just so carrying and nice and patient and wonderful. She is highly recommended and respected by other experienced Dr's as well. My baby had 2 laryngomalacia surgeries with her, at 10 daysold and at 2mos old - both very successful and now she can breathe and eat on her own. We are so pleased with Dr.Hamming. Don't hesitate to ask her questions!
