Dr. Hammond seemed very competent, and was able to clearly explain everything to me and my spouse. I appreciated him and his team fitting me into their schedule somewhat last minute. Much of my communication was with Dr. [ ], and I was so grateful for the compassion, sensitivity, and prioritization with which she handled my case. I was very grateful for this team in a very difficult personal time.
