Visit went will with a good exchange of information on the questions I had. It was a very long wait for the doctor like 1 hour after my ex-rays. That was very very very long wait!

Dr. Hanneman has been my doctor for over 20 yrs and she is fantastic. Caring and compassionate, a good listener. I have already told family and friends that I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

Review for Dr. Hanneman

Dr Oleinik was great. She listened to me and as a result my cancer was diagnosed sooner, with the tests she prescribed. Thank you Doctor!
