Waiting time in office to see Dr. Hanson ridiculous. He spent all of 5 minutes after waiting an hour and 15minutes for him to come to the room. He seemed to be slightly rushed explained to me what he believes is wrong and quickly sends you on your way to get more testing done. So if you are looking for good bedside manner he is not the guy. Is he polite yes. (No apologies for my wait time though). Can't say what I think at this point but Maybe it was because I was irritated from waiting so long. So will I go back for my follow up with him after my testing ? Yes. If no other reason than to hopefully have a better impression of him and give him a 2nd chance. The rest of staff all very nice. I guess I am one of those people that wants to feel like your doctor cares about helping you and wants to do right by you even if deep down they could care less. Some doctors can portray this character trait some cannot. I work for doctors and I know how respect for patients can go a long way.

He is very personable & easy to talk to. He has only given my shots to reduce the pain in my knee. I think that process has probably come to an end, as the pain returned w/in 3 days. He is hard to reach no email address; & he doesn't return phone calls.

Doctor Hanson performed a Total Left Knee Replacement 10 weeks ago.. He was excellent and I trust him completely. He will perform my Right Knee Replacement this year.. His demeanor is always pleasant and I feel very confident being his patient.. I would highly recommend Doctor Hanson! I feel I have my life back and love my new knee. His staff is courteous and always return my calls promptly! Thank you Doctor Hanson!

Dr.Curtis Hanson exemplifies every quality I would ever want in a surgeon. His gentle approachable nature made me feel so safe and hopeful during my entire experience. Under his gentle nature is a Brilliant Surgeon who I would rank up with the tops in our country. Two surgeries later I am still a believer. Thank you Dr. Hanson.
