Hammer is so bad I had to file a complaint about him. He is a total creep. I caught him staring at my chest during mutilple appointments and then staring at me and checking me out separately. What a disgusting low life he is. What if I had to get surgery and had to be put under anesthesia? Should I have been worried he would have looked at my chest when I was unconscious? Yeah, that’s why I filed a complaint. I hate this guy and do not trust him. He has no idea what he is doing medically and my ears are still hurting because he did not know how to treat them. He is so poorly educated and unskilled it is a joke. He did not even go to a good medical school and I would never trust him to do any surgery or work on me. Who hired this guy? He once snapped at me and went off on me during an appt. I went home crying and extremely upset. He is nasty and condescending and has treated me unkindly many times. He speaks horribly to patients and is so miserable to deal with. I had to end treatment with him and the office not because I was feeling better but because I could not stand to be around him anymore and he was doing nothing but wasting my time and money. He was supposed to prescribe me a medicine and never did. He was supposed to give me a hearing test and never did. He thought he had prescribed me a medicine and I was taking it and in reality he never prescribed anything. He just casually said stuff about getting more additional surgeries and then never mentioned them again or follows up. He is incompetent, a mess and a joke. He would often make comments about beating me up during appointments. He would treat my pain as a joke when in reality it was very serious. He is super two faced and manipulative as well. He acts differently in front of different people and with different patients. He acted differently when interns were in the room with him. He seemed more concerned with trying to “impress” them too, When the focus should be on ME. I literally could hear other patient appointments through the walls while i sat and waited in the exam room for him and he treated me so much more unkindly then other patients when he would come in. I have no idea why. I have been described as quite lovely by many other doctors so obviously the issue is not mine. When I started to figure him out and realized his true horrible colors, that I when I ended treatment for good. He is so shady. The office staff is horribly nasty and unprofessional as well. I had to file a separate complaint about Bucks ent as well. Avoid him and all the doctors at Bucks ent.
Dr. Hammer was not trying to get another surgery, he was not trying to give me allergies, he didn't do any unnecessary test. He cleaned my nose and did it well...I recommend him...I have went to three other ENT doctors and this is the best one....I wholehearted recommend Dr. Hammer to anyone who needs a ENT doctor....The staff is very nice also
