Community Memorial expands primary care

Community Memorial (CMH) network has added a new physician to its team.

Physician Isaiah (Jake) Hammonds earned his medical degree from the American University of Antigua College of Medicine. In addition, he obtained a Doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College.

With a history in the United States Army and years of successfully managing his chiropractic office, Hammonds has focused on patient care, cultivating an extensive patient panel.

His residency at Interfaith Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, equipped him with comprehensive training in hospital care, from patient assessment to final diagnosis. As a seasoned general internal medicine physician with experience in a large city hospital, Hammonds will be a valuable collaborator with the Community Memorial team, particularly in working with the hospitalist team to care for admitted patients in the Hamilton facility. Being a native of Central New York, Hammonds is well-acquainted with the region and the healthcare needs of the local population served by CMH.

Hammonds will see patients ages 18 and up at the Waterville Family Health Center.

“Internal medicine offers diversity in care for patients, and my patient-centered and wellness philosophy will allow me to build relationships with my patients. I’m excited to join the CMH primary care team,” he said.
