With four siblings in the medical field, caring for others has become a family tradition for Dr. Hammer.

He finds the results of oculoplastic surgery quite gratifying. “When a patient has a good outcome from a surgery, it’s a wonderful feeling,” Dr. Hammer said. “There’s nothing better than having a happy patient.”

With five children, Dr. Hammer strives to strike a balance between allowing as much time as needed for patients and creating time for his family.

Dr. Hammer enjoys sports, playing golf, hunting, and spending time with his family.
