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. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. 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 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.

About the Practice/Practice News

Telemedicine Option: I am also using telemedicine visits to stay connected with my patients when they are unable to see me in the office. It is easy to do, and we have maintained our momentum with preventive health goals and chronic care during difficult times.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Hammer

from Marc in DE November 2, 2023 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

Several weeks ago I developed lower back pain, which progressively got worse as the day went on. By the next morning my left leg had lost all of its strength. Being a MDVIP member I was able to contact Dr. Hammer before office hours on his personal cell phone. That is something that doesn’t happen in the alternative medical world. I was in his office by 10 AM that morning and Scott was able to… See more

from Ann in MD August 10, 2023 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

I have switched to a new MDVIP office because I moved from Delaware. I needed some documents to send to my new MDVIP doctor. Olga took care of it within 5 minutes of receiving the request. Her service to Dr. Scott Hammer is always the best you get. It takes so much stress off the transition process. Many thanks to Olga for her help today.

from Ann in MD August 10, 2023 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

I moved to Delaware and encountered several health problems. My daughter encouraged me to seek out Dr. Scott Hammer for guidance. He was the first doctor to listen to my whole condition and believe that I was suffering from something that was difficult to diagnose. He considered every possibility as he patiently listened. Such dedication is so appreciated when one does not feel well. Scott… See more

When Dr. Scott Hammer told me he was changing his practice and joining MDVIP I had a decision to make. Do I stay with his care and pay the additional costs for a concierge service or find another doctor. Listening to his reasoning - more time devoted to his patients, more emphasis on well-being and staying healthy, his improved availability to his patients, all helped me decide this was the… See more

After my husband died nearly five years ago, eating my favorite things was a comfort. What wasn't comforting was the 20 odd pounds I put on in the following years. With the encouragement of Dr. Hammer who told me about the diet meal plans for 1 on the MDVIP website, I was able to stick with a diet during the lockdown and subsequent weeks of the pandemic and I have lost that 20 pounds. His… See more

from Thomas and Patricia in DE July 7, 2020 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

My husband and I have had Dr Hammer as our physician for over 10 years. We are so blessed that he was recommended to us by a friend. Dr Hammer you are the most warm and caring person I know.

You have given us options/choices for our medical issues/treatments… See more

from Veronica in DE March 14, 2020 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

My husband was recently diagnosed with Melanoma. We were in no way prepared for this diagnosis; nor prepared to process it Dr. Hammer was invaluable assisting us with making needed decisions in a timely manner. He ensured we had a PET scan done, were connected to an Oncology team at Penn Medical, and Surgeon specializing in this specific type of cancer. In approximately 6 weeks of our initial… See more

from Rosemary in DE March 13, 2020 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

Last year I was traveling in Germany and developed Bells Palsy. Being able to reach Dr. Hammer directly meant so much to me as he was able to diagnose and confirm what the doctor in Germany thought was going on and advise me what to do. What a comfort that was! And upon returning home he came to my home to check me out and make sure I was OK. The personal care I've received from him… See more

from Ilona in DE March 12, 2020 for Scott A. Hammer, MD, FAAFP

I was dealing with scratchy pain in my eye for about three years, that was getting worse. I saw three different eye doctors. The last one suggested dry eye drops which I followed for two weeks, but still getting worse. When my husband and I signed up for MDVIP with our longtime family physician Dr. Hammer, I finally brought up the eye problem, since MDVIP included an eye exam. I also told Dr.… See more
