Dr Hanson, a real gentle giant, is the best model of the doctor/patient relationship. He listens intently to your concerns, He takes notes, asks probing questions related to your concerns. He took time with me and made me feel so relieved. I wish I had seen him sooner.

Horrible, he never called back after getting an MRI, I had hearing loss and hasn’t done anything about it! Money hungry, but doesn’t care about anything else.

I had a sudden and serious hearing loss in right ear in a 24 hour period that proved not related to my hearing aids. My audiologist/ hearing pro called Dr. Hanson’s office and got me into see him immediately which surprised us both! He said he considered this to be an emergency and addressing it immediately was key to improving the loss. Well, He was right! After 2 weeks of drug treatment my hearing has returned! Dr. Hanson was helpful, hopeful, and happy for me . my thanks to everyone!

My husband came to him with chronic throat pain feeling like something was stuck. Dr. Hanson did not even do a scope... did not even seem interested in listening to my husbands concerns before he just said... it's a throat infection and gave him a script for 2 antibiotics. We had them filled and he was taking them. The throat was not getting better but getting worse with other symptoms. My husband called the office explaining this to them and they said.. Dr Hanson was not concerned and said to j

After a near fatal cycling accident, Dr. Hanson was assigned to reconstruct the right part of my trachea/larynx. Not sure if they were crushed from the impact or afterwards. However, Dr. Hanson with the help of a resident student Dr. Byrd, did an outstanding job with the repairs. For most of the time I saw Dr. Hanson, I couldn't speak and frankly didn't remember some of it due to induced coma from being in ICU. Being vocal about what I wanted to get accomplished he worked to suit my needs.

I suffered chronic nosebleeds since 2005 after a severe allergic reaction to a drug given after a brain aneurysm. I was treated several times with silver nitrate, but that didn't last very long, these doctors not seeming to believe the cause was related to the allergic reaction. After Dr. Hanson examined me, he immediately recommended cauterization, which was done March 2, 2016. I have had no more nosebleeds, and am very grateful. I highly recommend him!!!!

Dr. Hanson's care provided was satisfactory, however, he only does procedures at a surgery center that he is part owner in. The amount that was billed to my insurance for a simple 5 minute procedure topped 25,000. This was significantly more than other respected ENT's in the area after I researched for a new ENT due to this hight cost billed. Since most insurance polices require that the patient pay 10-30% of the billed amount I found this to be excessive. To get my records I was quoted $50.
