My daughter has had 2 surgeries with Dr Hansen and loves him. So when it was determined I had a miniscus tear I immediately called his office and made an appointment. I immediately liked his personality and it was obvious he was confident and knowledgeable. Day one after my outpatient surgery and all is well. Everyone who worked with him at surgicenter were awesome. Looking forward to a great rehab experience!

I took my daughter to see Dr. Hanson for an injury. His staff was very professional and made her feel comfortable. Dr. Hanson was great, put her at ease and had a plan to help her. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to actually talk to her to really understand her pain. Would definitely recommend Dr. Hanson!

Dr Hanson was attentive. He gave me options because I do not want to have surgery at this time. I am not always receptive of having medical students who are interning to examining me prior to his coming into do the exam but I guess they need to have a teaching moment. I would say if you are using interns that the staff should let the patient know.

Dr Hanson repaired my hip over a year ago. Went back for a knee issue. We are starting PT. See where this takes me. I prefer no surgery for starters. He is an excellent Dr who listens and does not rush to judgment.

Actually got in early as I had arrived early. Dr Hanson explained thoroughly what my diagnosis is and best options for treatment.

Dr. Hanson was very nice. However, he didn’t spend much time with me and didn’t really give me any additional information that I didn’t already know. When I had a question after he left, he sent in his assistant to answer it & didn’t appear to really want to take the time with me. His billing associate, Marissa, was very rude and nasty to me when she called me to discuss my insurance benefits. Because of this conversation with her, I was tempted to cancel the appointment altogether.
