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.

from Angela in DE March 10, 2020 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

I have multiple health issues and Dr. Hammer has been attentive every time. Some of my pressing issues have been dealt with immediately via appointments right away and testings, scans, x-rays ordered and completed the same day, and follow up has been awesome. I also have to say I have even called the office and one of the doctors has answered! I am beyond happy with Dr. Hammer, his fellow… See more

When my wife, Susan, was found to have both a cancerous polyp in her colon and a cancerous tumor in her kidney, we were not only floored by her diagnosis, but also did not know where to start and line up those who could help us.
Dr. Scott Hammer took us under his wing, set up appointments with the proper physicians and coordinated everything she needed while listening, giving advice as… See more

My son needs to have yearly confirmation from his primary care physician submitted to our state Court of competent jurisdiction regarding his serious medical condition. As his biological mother I must rely on our primary physician to understand and comply with our legal standards. Without our primary care physician understanding of these requirements, my adult Autistic son could become a ward… See more

from Austin November 20, 2019 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

This past year I moved and selected a new MDVIP physician at my new location. I was very happy with my previous MDVIP physician, but I am even more impressed the care I am now receiving from my new physician, Dr. Scott Hammer, and his amazing team. This week I began the tests for my annual physical exam under the care of nurse Cody Malone. Cody took the time to provide an overview of… See more

from Carl November 12, 2019 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

I have been an patient of Dr. Hammer for over 10 years and find him to be very well qualified and compassionate. I debated following him into the MDVIP practice and decided that with all the coordination with other doctors that I would and am pleased I did. I could not find a better GP if I tried. In my latest bout, I saw him at 4PM, had tests done at hospital at 6, 9PM he had the results and… See more

from Eric September 16, 2019 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

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

from Pat August 12, 2019 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

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
