My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Family medicine is about families. My desire as your family physician is to provide you with the same type of personalized healthcare that I expect for my own family. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care doctor, I have the time to focus on your healthcare needs and those of your loved ones. By providing a warm, unhurried atmosphere, I have the energy to serve as your primary care physician in a manner that you deserve. It will be an honor, as your personal doctor, to develop the type of relationship that fosters excellent health and well-being across the life spectrum.
Apart from obstetrics, I practice the full scope of family medicine, from birth through the type of end-of-life decisions that my additional board certification in Hospice and Palliative Care necessitate. I believe in quality of life throughout an entire lifetime and will work as a team with you and yours to ensure that you are living your ideal life. It is my fervent desire to know my patients well and, by doing so, be better equipped to manage their health.
I have special interests in pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric health, chronic disease management and minor office procedures, to name a few. I suppose that doesn't really narrow it down, but in my office, similar to a concierge medical practice, we will be able to focus on those interests that are important to you, with an emphasis on wellness and prevention. I am fluent in English and Spanish, a member of the Bayhealth Board of Directors and Medical Staff and serve Central and Southern Delaware and beyond!
I look forward to our future together.

I walked in feeling like I was not healthy and came out with a plan. I do not like to go to the doctor because I get treated and then I leave. the health assessment that I had with Dr. Hammer got me motivated to tend to my health, it gave me a plan, a path... to my positive health. It is at a higher cost but the advantages make it worth it. I have a Dr. that I can call on whenever I need him.… See more

Dr Scott Hammer joined MDVIP this spring. There was no doubt that I would join this new model. Since then, I have been seen by him once in a follow-up visit that occurred within 2 days of my hospital discharge and once for my Medicare physical. His office staff is very pleasant and helpful. It is a joy to walk in for my appointment and find Dr. Hammer behind the front desk basically waiting… See more
