Had a follow up appt. With amanda for a follow up appt. For my MRI as well as my Bladder condition with the new medication that was given. I called them and said hi when is my appt. And she says oh yeah I was going to call you any ways to remind you! So I confirmed the appt with whom ever answered the phone. I have been homeless for about a month or living in a tent in la veta. So I drove an hour 20 min to my appt for them to say ur not on the schedule! So I told them the same story...

Without a doubt, the most arrogant, rude, uncaring person I've ever met.

Dr. Hanson went out of his way to start my healing late on a Sunday afternoon, I appreciate being able to get in to see him without having an appointment. They are open every day, and have an x-ray machine on the premises.

This man obviously cares about people and wants to make them better by fixing their orthopedic issues. He has repaired my fractured wrist, and now a ruptured achilles tendon. He is careful, knowledgeable, and trustworthy...everything you want in a surgeon. I would recommend him to my family and friends

I would definitely recommend Dr. Hanson to family or friends. I was injured at work and had to have a total knee replacement. Dr. Hanson (with x-rays) explained to me why this specific surgery was necessary. He explained the procedure very thoroughly, both verbally and with diagrams. I found Dr. Hanson to be courteous and most kind. Sincerely, Barbara Eckhardt

This old man should retire. He has no business still practicing medicine. He performs unnecessary surgeries, and he refuses, or is incapable, of using microscopic surgery, causing undue suffering and greatly increased recovery time for patients. He does not deserve one star.

The wait time is ridiculous the scheduler who schedule these appointments needs to be replaced they are booked way too close together for the last three visits I spent over three hours from the time I walked in the door to the time I walked out that is a little bit ridiculous
