I was referred to Dr. Hanke by my dermatologist for Mohs surgery. Had no problem getting a convenient appointment. He could have spent a little more time explaining the procedure and expectations of after-surgery appearance, but I have had this type of surgery before so it wasn't a big deal to me. He is very busy and a little quick. But, the outcome was very good which is all that counts in the end.
Indianapolis, IN |
I went to Dr. Hanke for a cyst removal. Because he did not completely remove the cyst, the procedure has to be repeated. I experience significant pain and discomfort after the first procedure. After spending hours in his office waiting and waiting just to see Dr. Hanke, I have decided to go to another doctor. It is very unfortunate, because Dr. Hanke was a very good doctor at one time. All of staff that had been with him for years have either quit or been fired.
