Dr. Hanks is an excellent doctor. He is family friendly, child friendly & his bedside manor is excellent. He takes the time to make sure all questions are answered & understood before leaving his office. He also makes sure to discuss & throughly talk you through any procedures beforehand.

My daughter got depressed and even more sick, and the doctor himself isn't that nice. We spent hours waiting for the doctor to see us and when he did he talked for about 5 minutes. Dr. Hanks was really pushy on wanting us to go to his eating disorder hospital. The only reason we stayed with him is he could do lab test to make sure everything was ok. I would not at all recommend Dr. Hanks to anyone, he's a joke. Not worth what you pay!
