Obsessed with weight and fitness. Doesn't treat you like a real person. Just not easy to talk to.

Discriminatory Treatment

Dr. Hammer discriminates against overweight people. He does not give them equal treatment. He thinks every health condition is the patient's fault for not enough exercise nor eating the right foods. Sometimes, patients need empathy and encouragement, not discrimination. He has lost touch with the common man.
