I was very impressed with attentive, caring staff. Doctor Hammond never seemed rushed or dismissive in any questions about surgery, scheduling, or costs. Very open and helpful. Cataract surgery was a complete success and pain free! Even got a call from him a few hours after surgery. The staff at his clinic and hospital surgery wing was the best! I was much impressed.
