Our Sonographer Team

The sonographer team at Hammers Healthcare Imaging is one of the main reasons patients and their families feel comfortable coming to our office.

The handpicked staff that will greet you and guide you through this process is the finest in the area. Many members of the team have been with Dr. Hammers for over 15 years and their familiar faces help reassure and comfort patients during a potentially stressful time in their lives.
