I am a new patient and have now seen Dr. Hammerman twice. I was having a lot of trouble finding a dermatologist who both accepts my insurance and whom I would not have to wait weeks to get an appointment with. I had no trouble getting an appointment and he saw me both times with minimal wait time. Dr. Hammerman immediately diagnosed a skin issue I have. He was very helpful referring me to a plastic surgeon in the same practice to have a cyst removed from my scalp. The office and staff are all very pleasant and professional. I am happy to have found Dr. Hammerman.

He seems like a nice enough guy but I didn't get a follow-up call on the mole he removed. He also didn't follow-up on previous lab result he offered to review and he did not. He seemed rather embarrassed and rushed when he saw me. I've had good experiences here before but this one does not count as one of the good ones.

He treated me 100% with my first problem several months ago. I hope he treats this one 100% as well. He definitely seems extremely knowledgeable. He doesn't promise me unrealistic results, which is something I respect. He also doesn't market a million different products to make a quick buck. I think he truly cares about his patients and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good dermatologist.

Unfortunately I was disappointed with my experience. I had never been to a dermatologist before and was excited for my first visit! I went in for a skin cancer screening because I have never had one. They were very dismissive. The receptionist was rude, the PA only engaged with me when she realized I was from a place she was soon to be moving to, and I was under the impression another person was going to do my exam. I waited almost an hour for the Dr. to look at me for MAYBE 2 minutes. This office seems to be very COSMETIC focus. Maybe I am at fault because I wanted more of a general/medical consultation. Since I was not purchasing any cosmetic services I felt as though I was being dismissed. Note that you should not write someone off just because they are coming in for a simple screening. I was hopeful to make this my primary Dermatologist and I was in fact interested in exploring services such as laser hair removal, and establishing a skincare regiment. I know very little about the care of your skin and Dermatologists, especially with new patients who state they've never seen a Dermatologist before, should try to get to know what concerns are to possibly acquire a new patient.

I have nothing but great things to say about my visit with Dr. Hammerman. It was my first time at the 19th street location (I was accustomed to visits in Mid-Town). The location is a bit of a hike for me, but Dr. Hammerman's professionalism and attention are worth the longer commute. I arrived 1 minute late for my appointment, but I only waited 12 minutes before the nurse escorted me to the exam room. Dr. Hammerman attended to my medical issue with laser focus and the gentlest of hands. His precision is well above average, which I appreciate very much. If my issue recurs, I am fortunate to know exactly who to call for an appointment. I recommend Dr. Hammerman to all who need a Dermatologist.

Ill-informed and arrogant. Granted, I should have found a traditional dermatologist rather than go to an injectibles storefront, but it was an emergency. He should remember that people have feelings and try not to be so condescending.

I was disappointed that only one of three issues were discussed during my visit - including not discussing biopsy results and medicine prescribed. Additionally, the doctor neglected all of the presenting problems in the one issue that was addressed.

As usual, my visit with Dr. Hammerman was top notch! I arrived early, and was escorted back to the exam room within 7 minutes. When Dr. Hammerman came in, he greeted me and asked about my birthday which occurred 2 weeks ago. We had a great conversation then Scott segued seamlessly to the business at hand. He took great care of me. I learned Dr. Hammerman will be moving his practice further downtown. While it is less convenient, I will follow him anywhere! Thanks Dr. Hammerman!

Dr. Hammerman was rude and not helpful at all. He definitely needs to work on his bedside manner. He came recommended to me by a coworker but I would never go back to see him or recommend him to anybody else I know.
