I have been a patient of Dr Hanger for many years, probably 30 years. I could not ask for a more caring and efficient person to care for my health. He has served me well and I thoroughly am satisfied with him and his practice and recommend him wholeheartedly.

Three years ago he took care of my atrial flutter -- went to work the next day. This week he put a stent in my heart artery - back to work the next day. Outstanding.

I went to him two months ago due to A-fib. He scheduled a nuclear stress test and echo cardiogram which took two weeks. I called and scheduled a follow up appointment for the results of the test and it was scheduled for 4-4-16 at 230 PM. my appointment was canceled by Dr. Hanger and I was not notified. It has been two months and I still have do not have any answers. I am changing cardiologist as of today. Maybe they will at least act like they care about their patients. would not recommend

Bed side manner very disconcerting!... overall impression of his attitude was as if he did not care if the client was over 80yr.. as if ..oh well they are old and lived long... however some people in their 80's are still vibrant, cognitive, and full of life-- as long as minor issues can be attended to along the way.. The front desk girl was complaining about the work and how frustrated she was-- loudly so everyone in the sitting area could hear... not professional..
