Ratings for Dr. Charles Hamm
Beware - yes he appears to be very nice however he likes to do unnecessary surgery! After two surgeries he performed on me in St Thomas which left me in a great deal of pain and pelvic issues (which post the surgery I returned only to be told by him I was fine) he then abandoned the practice without notice to his patients. I have since been told by another specialist (plus have the pathology report to prove) the surgery was totally unnecessary and the pelvic floor prolapse I know have is the result of the surgery he performed. I have spent the last 8 months in agony and it has changed my life significantly. Get a second opinion before he signs you up for a hysterectomy ! Lastly this is the second review I have written as the first on I did has been deleted off this site???
I have worked as an RN with many OB/GYNs, and this doctor is by far the best! And not only from a professional point of view but from a patient's point of view also. I miss him terribly and hope he is doing well in Ontario. Hopefully they realize what a gem they have!
Went to see Dr Hamm 7 months after having my first baby girl for an IUD. He was very helpful and took the time to talk with me about other options for birth control and even discussed my birth experience and my c section. He gave me information about vbac and what we could do for our next baby. Quite impressed!
I have been seeing Dr Hamm off and on over the past year. I find him to be very professional, kind and genuinely concerned for my well being. He is very easy to talk to and will take the time to explain things to me. I would recommend him to anyone and feel strongly that you will not be disappointed with his care, compassion and dedication to resolving your medical issue.
Seemed like a very ignorant man who thought more highly of his own opinion than the needs of his patient. Would not recommend or go again - arrogant.
I saw Dr. Hamm for a gynecological problem and he was very nice and approachable. He knew what was wrong and started me on a medication without examining me and the medication didn't help. I followed up with him twice and he switched my medication twice but never examined me then either. I have since seen another doctor for a second opinion and they examined me and told me what was wrong and that the medicine he gave me wouldn't have helped. He's very nice but I'd be cautious if you see him because I'm not sure he knows what he's doing.
He delivered my still born baby this year. He was not my OB at the time but was on call when I went to the hospital because I couldn't feel my baby moving anymore. He was very kind to me and my family. He sat with me as I cried and held my hand as we talked about what had happened. He told me honestly what he believed was the cause, which was a mistake by another doctor. He doesn't care about covering up for others. He is honest and full of integrity. I went to see him every few months as we were struggling to get pregnant. He was very positive and encouraging. Now that I am pregnant he sees me every week and has an ultrasound in his office so I can see my little bean every week. Dr. Hamm is not just an amazing doctor but an amazing human being. I feel like he is part of our family. We consider meeting him the silver lining in the horrible tragedy we faced by losing our baby. He is amazing.
I have been so very fortunate to have Dr Hamm as my new gynecologist. Recently I was scheduled by my doctor for an ultrasound because of abdominal pain but because the pain became much worse I made the trip to my local emergency room. The doctor there checked me over and sent me for an ultrasound. After my ultrasound I reported back to emergency to wait for the report. While there Dr Hamm was working the weekend and came down to see me then did the surgery that same evening. He was so very caring and knowledgeable that I trusted that he was the right doctor to do this surgery. He made me feel at ease before going into the operating room. I felt so much better after I woke from the surgery and was back to normal activities the next day. I highly recommend Dr Hamm. He is so compassionate, kind and has excellent bedside manners. He was just filling in for that weekend at this hospital so I do have to travel just over an hour to see him but I am more than happy to do that to keep him as my gynecologist. Doctors like him are far and few. Thank you Dr Hamm!
