I was disappointed with my experience. Sharon Hammond left the room and said a scheduler would be in to see me. The scheduler then said that I was done and could leave. I expected that the provider would come back into the room to ask if I had any questions, but she did not. I left feeling very confused and concerned. I had to call back to see if I could get my questions answered. I talked to Sharon Hammond's assistant, who was unable to answer all of my questions. It was frustrating. Sharon Hammond finally called me and the answers I got from her were different from what she told me at the appointment. I did not come away from my appointment feeling that the provider listened to me or communicated with me effectively. I intent to return to Issaquah Swedish OB/GYN, but I do not wish to see Sharon Hammond again.

I would have like more information about my other options. She seemed pretty focused on one treatment plan and I would have like more information about my other options.

my experience with Sharon was disappointing

Immediately Dr. Hammond reprimanded me for not going to the Pregnancy Intro, which I was told during scheduling was optional. She asked me why I was here […] and what I wanted from her, in what seemed to my husband and myself to be a condescending tone. I had to stand up for myself and say I was here for an initial pregnancy exam and ultrasound. It was very strange and upsetting. […], I will be leaving this practice because of my experience with Dr. Hammond. She made a couple inappropriate comments that I think were intended to be jokes but were unprofessional, in my opinion. I am leaving Swedish OB/Gyn because of this second bad experience. I have friends who have also had bad experiences with Dr. Hammond, so I know it's not just me. I do not have confidence in my care with this provider. […]

She seemed a little uptight and didn't connect with us when my husband was joking or 'making light' of things.

Sharon Hammond has been nothing but amazing! Her ability to understand and connect with the emotional side and medical side of my well being is above and beyond expectations.

I was not expecting to see a midwife for my first OB visit. I understood that my OB would not be seeing me, but I expected a Nurse Practioner or Physicians Assisistant. [...] She didn't present options and then let me choose, instead I felt that she pushed her views on me the entire visit [...]. It was not a good experience & I hope that in the future she will not push her views of natural medicine on OB patients that don't want that approach. Women should not be judged, shamed or bullied into a birth plan. I am hopeful that my experience with Dr. [...] will be better.

Sharon was knowledgeable and for the most part nice. She seamed a little annoyed or judgemental about a couple questions we asked and it almost felt as though she expected us to know how the appointment was supposed go. Overall not a bad experience, it may have simply been a difference in personalities.

Very personable. Made me feel comfortable.

It was my first visit at Swedish, I was very pleased with their overall service from the beginning to end. The front end staff were friendly and helpful & my appointment with Sharon Hammond was wonderful. I was comfortable throughout my whole appointment and I was very satisfied with my appointment.

The wait time was more and we went through a very hurried experience on this visit with this provider. Also we did an ultrasound but we neither measured the foetus nor got a printout of the ultrasound. We just got to hear the heartbeat. We were expecting a better level of service from the provider and Swedish.
