Dr. Gregory D Hammond has the following 3 specialties
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.ttcqeayetrwczwezdueawsrsbdyr
- 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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Gregory D Hammond - Posted on June 29th, 2017
I started seeing Dr. Hammond about 10 yrs ago...he was awesome. However, he has become so busy that I cannot reach him for prescription refills or emergencies. His poor nurse cannot reach him either and I have been told several times "I have sent him a message, he just keeps ignoring it" This is crazy to me. Dr Hammonds specialty is pulmonary. Those issues can be life altering....I thnk I am going to find a new doctor.....Im tired of being sick and not able to get in touch with my doctor I have been loyal to for years.
an excellent physician

My experience with Dr. Hammond in the 2 years I have been seeing him for lung problems have been very good. He has definitely helped me with my problems, and I feel he is truly interested in me as a person, not as just a patient. He is also good at explaining things, so I can understand more what is going on with my body.
