I have been going to Dr. Hammond off and on for almost 30 years. The only reason I didn't go to him for a while was due to changes to insurance. I know there are a lot of good dermatogists in this town, because of all the sun, but Dr. Hammond is beyond the best. He is so smart it's scary. Had to go to another dr. for a wart on my finger and he finally gave up after about 10 treatments. I paid cash to go to Dr. Hammond, and he had it off on the first visit. He is an EXCELLENT diagnostician. He definitely knows his stuff and can tell you right then and there what's going on, and he doesn't try to make you come around any more than he feels you have to. He is the absolute best dr. in Santa Barbara. I only wish he was a physician in every field, I would feel so safe. He is also the funniest man i have ever met in my life, and the kindest. Just don't run to him and leave me without him, that's all I have to say.
Pros: Excellent service, excellent diagnostician, great sense of humore, just the best
Cons: Wish he could solve ALL my medial problems.
