07/06/11 2 3 5 5 I started seeing dr hamm after I had complications with my first pregnancy. I had delivered my child 2 weeks late and she was very large. He was very good with finding out the problem and had many options for fixing it. He was very knowledgeable and very comforting and had great bedside manner. I will definately see him again for future pregnancies.  Respond

27/03/11 2 2 2 2 Dr. Hamm was not a good fit for me. I was assigned him when I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to have as natural a pregnancy as possible without intervention. I found that he was too much into medical and intervention so I switched doctors. I have since found out that he is known at the hospital for being the most Type A and controlling doctor so I am glad I switched.  Respond

24/01/11 5 5 2 3 I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and was never informed of what exactly was wrong with me or what my options were. Just told to take depo-provera which was the absolute worst thing i've ever done. Dr. Hamm was nice but I wasn't satisfied with the answers or suggestions that he provided. I've since moved to another specialist at the IWK.  Respond

02/12/10 5 5 5 5 On October 27, 2007, I arrived at the hospital to deliver my baby girl. Charlie came in and check to see how things were going and I could see his heart sink when he didn't find a head, he found an arm and a leg. With in seconds he had me flying down the hall for an e-merg c-secton. When I woke up, my husband was there to tell he that Charlie had just performed an act of God. Dr. Hamm gave me and my daughter 4 minutes and he got her out just in time. Now, thankfully, to him, I have my beautiful 3 year old daughter. I feel he is my guardien angel sent from God to save my precious baby. I would recomend him to ANYONE!!!! Thank you so much Charlie!  Respond

27/10/10 5 5 5 5 I love this guy! I feel completly comfortable with him unlike most MALE gyno's. Hes extreamly helpful and very nice. He apologizes for any discomfort you may experience in anything you have to have done, which I laugh at cause generally they dont do that. Not that thats a bad thing! Hes just over all a gentel and caring guy, which seems very hard to find. As well as a great bedside manner :)  Respond

26/10/10 5 5 5 5 Got in to see Dr. Hamm quite quickly and he assess my situation and said I will be hearing from his office the same day or the next for an appt for the procedure. Gave me a website to look up the info about the procedure that I am having. He said the procedure should be scheduled within the next two weeks!!!! These days that is remarkable to have an appt with a specialist that quick.  Respond

21/11/09 5 4 5 5 I went to see Dr. Hamm when my husband and I were trying to have a baby...a few years ago, I'd had an ectopic pregnancy, and we weren't sure if there was something wrong with me. Turns out, when I went to see Dr. Hamm for fertility issues, I was already pregnant. He was amazing to me throughout the pregnancy, and my daughter was born via C-section. At present time, I am seeing Dr. Hamm for other pelvic-related issues, and as usual, I find he is compassionate, knowledgeable, and he gets the job done. His staff are capable and extremely friendly. I never knew that receiving medical care could be pleasant before experiencing this particular doctor's office. Thank you so much.  Respond

07/08/09 5 5 5 5 I can't say enough about Dr. Hamm. I saw him in November 2007 after suffering from menstrual issues for over seven years, and he is the only doctor I saw during that time who didn't just throw pills at me. He is also the only doctor who actually listened to what I had to say, instead of telling me that I was just *looking* for something to be wrong. He gave me the diagnosis I needed, and put me on a course of medication that actually WORKED for me. Thanks to him, my issues have improved more than I can describe. He is one of the most compassionate, caring doctors I have ever met, and he put me at ease immediately upon my entry into his office. Thank you so much for being the fantastic doctor you are, Dr. Hamm. Keep up the good work; you are a godsend to your patients.  Respond

05/03/09 5 5 5 5 On July 25, 2007, Dr. Hamm saved my life and my unborn son's life. He literally spent all afternoon with me while trying to stop me from seizing and losing the baby. This man stayed by my side until we boarded the helicopter to take us to the IWK where an emergency C-Section was performed. He was very professional, extremely knowledgeable, however, he also was able to carry conversation and joke around when my lighter side poked through. I think he's an angel and always will..... Thanks Charlie!  Respond

10/02/09 5 5 5 5 I highly recommend this wonderful, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor. It was a fluke that I met him but he saved me from a lot of pain and misery. He listened to me when no one else would and he cured the pain that no else could. I would highly recommend him and wish he was my GP. Thanks Dr. Hamm!!  Respond

23/09/08 5 5 5 5 Never have I experienced the care and compassion I received by Dr. Hamm. I wish he was my GP. We are truly blessed to have him in our area. I have encouraged my friends to request him as the need arises. They thank me all the time. His knowledge and patience will carry him a long way. I just hope it is not far from here.  Respond

Was told Dr. Hamm rearranged his schedual guess they forgot I was sitting there waiting for him for 6 hrs. He told me he would set up another date and time(never heard from him again).  See Responses

10/05/08 5 5 5 5 Dr Hamm single handedly saved my son and my wife. He performed an emergency section on my wife and then arranged for her and my son Tanner to be sent to the IWK. 6 weeks later we are all home together,safe and sound. I have seen him around our small town but am afraid to thank him. Men are not supposed to cry. If anyone ever has trouble with this doctor look in the mirror not at him!  Respond

10/05/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Hamm treated a problem which had plagued me for over 20 years because my family doctor would not listen to me. He took away pain that I had been suffering for over 20 years with one small operative procedure. But most of all, he believed me and was very concerned that I have tests to rule out other problems that had been misdiagnosed my my family doctor. I am so glad that I met this kind, compassionate and extremely competent doctor  Respond
