Dr. Christopher W Hammerle has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

One Star

Office as a whole seemed very efficient right up to my endoscopy by Dr. Hammerle for persistent heartburn. Afterward it is impossible to get answers about interpreting the results of the endoscopy (went over it afterwards but the versed and fentanyl (if I remember correctly) make you so absent minded you will need another consultation) diet, otc meds vs prescriptions, getting a prescription, how to proceed over how long to get relief, etc. Not one positive experience after the scope. Typically I would call, leaving a long and detailed message for his P.A. named Candie as requested because she never picks up the phone. Then wait 2 days for a call back in which she will ask you exactly what you already left on her voicemail. Then you get to wait more. To be fair, it seems more of an issue with inept office staff. Avoid Idaho gastro, you probably are not going to be happy.
