Patient Testimonials

I had a breast reduction from Dr. Dennis Hammond in May. I have had a huge boost in confidence and feel so much better about myself. I have also started running because I don’t have that part holding me back any more. I have now run two 5K races and look forward to running the Fifth Third Riverbank Run next May! Thank you Dr. Hammond and staff!!

It took me years to go ahead with breast augmentation. I had been thinking about it off and on since I was 18 years old. Finally, at 44 years old I met Dr. Andrea Van Pelt and after a few very in-depth conversations about what I would like, the procedure itself, the recovery and cost, I went ahead with the procedure and I’m so happy that I did. I feel better about myself, clothes fit better and I’m proud of my body. My breasts look and feel natural, and the only people that know I’ve had breast augmentation are the people I’ve told. I look the same only now it’s really me and not a padded bra, which feels awesome! If I ever move out of state I will gladly come back to Dr. Van Pelt for anything that I may need or want to have done in the future. In fact…I WILL come back…I know that with her I’ll get the best of the best.

I am very impressed with the work that Dr. Hammond did. I really appreciate how he explains what he is doing as he goes along. My husband is very pleased with the results. I also want to add that the office staff and the nurses were very nice and helpful; I really appreciated them. I don’t know the names of the doctors that helped Dr. Hammond, but they were very much liked and appreciated. The whole experience was very much recommended to anyone that needs their services. I thank God that he brought me to this office.

Dr. Hammond was one of three opinions I received when considering surgery. Upon meeting with him I knew immediately he was the one I wanted to do my surgery. Let me explain… I have had two children and breast-fed them both. Age, (I am near forty) combined with the breastfeeding left me with severe sagging. I have always been small breasted but the sagging made me look even smaller. When I met Dr. Hammond I felt very comfortable with his knowledge, his professionalism and his confidence in performing a successful surgery that I would be happy with. He thoroughly explained what he felt would give me the results I desired. The other opinions I had received simply told me what they would do without considering what results I was looking for. Plus, my family doctor highly recommended Dr. Hammond.

Dear Dr. Van Pelt, Thank you for fixing my nose. It is beautiful and I can finally breathe out of it. I must admit that I had pretty much forgotten how to breathe through my nose so now I have to remind myself that I can do it. Dr. Van Pelt, you made me feel very comfortable with your caring attitude and personable style. Penni’s calming words and knowledgeable advice added to my comfort. Thank you both very much!

Dr. Dennis Hammond performed immediate reconstructive surgery on me following a bilateral mastectomy. I had been diagnosed with lobular carcinoma in situ and, needless to say, this was a very difficult time for me. I met with Dr. Hammond very early in my decision making process on the recommendation of my general surgeon.

From the first time we met, I had a feeling of confidence in Dr. Hammond. Not only had he come highly recommended, but he took the time to fully explain to me my options and the pros and cons of the different methods of breast reconstruction. Dr. Hammond spent the time necessary for me to completely understand the procedures and showed me examples of other patients at various stages of recovery. Consequently, I felt more prepared for the procedure and for what to expect as I recovered. When the day came for my surgery, I knew that I had made the right decision and that I was in excellent hands that I trusted. I knew he had my best interests at heart.

It was during my recovery period that I gained an enormous respect for the very competent staff that Dr. Hammond has surrounded himself with. No question or concern was too small for Joanie, Dr. Hammond’s scrub nurse. If I called the office with a concern, she’d call back even on days when they were at the hospital with scheduled surgery. Marie and the rest of the office staff were very warm and friendly. I looked forward to going for my post-surgical exams because it was a very supportive atmosphere.

I highly recommend Dr. Dennis Hammond for breast reconstructive surgery. It was a life changing experience for me and I’m very grateful that I found the right doctor with the necessary skills to do my surgery.
