Dr. Hansen was able to see my son right after his injury and we have been very happy with the surgery and how we were treated. We also had positive experiences with his P.A. Geoff Streeter who took his time to explain everything and was very professional.

Dr. Hanson has replaced both the left and right shoulders. His has been upfront on the condition of the joint. Dr. Hanson gives you all the alternatives so you can make an intelligent decision on how to proceed. Dr. Hanson and Jeff Streeter (PA) are both personable and professional.

I have had Dr. Hansen as my ortho doc now for close to 2 years and I really like him. Unfortunately I have a lot of issues and he never makes me feel any less of a person. Whenever I need to make an appointment I never have any issues and I am usually able to see him. He has his PA Jeff who is great as well! Actually all of his staff is great. I had to have a rotator cuff repair done last year and he did a great job!
Gilbert, AZ |
Excellent doctor! I would highly recommend him to others.
in GIlbert, AZ |
I visited Dr. Hansen for shoulder and knee problems. He completed surgery on both locations. Surgery went very well and the recovery was exactly as Dr. Hansen prescribed. I am currently able to do all activities that I did previously with no pain. My physical therapist was amazed with how quickly my shoulder healed and was able to have passive full range of motion shortly after the surgery.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Hansen is the best! I've suffered with pain in my right groin for 15 years. I've been to countless other doctors, physical therapists, you name it. He was able to figure it out immediately!! I had 2 surgeries on my right hip for FAI. Dr. Hansen has a great personality and listened to all of my concerns, and explained everything in detail. I'm pain free today and very grateful!! His staff is the best, too. They went above and beyond to help me out with insurance, paperwork and other needs.
in Mesa, AZ |
Dr. Hansen has taken very good care of me. He has a wonderful bedside manner and communicates effectively based on patient medical knowledge. His staff is quick to respond to any patient needs.
in Queen Creek, AZ |
Had torn medial meniscus, saw Dr. Hansen, got in immediately. He drained swollen knee, gave steroid shot. Within a month, knee still hurt (steroid shots never work in me), he suggested laparoscopic surgery. Surgery scheduled in no time, pain was gone and I walked out. Follow ups with Dr or PA were great, PA and office staff very nice, efficient. So impressed, I scheduled a needed back surgery with their back surgeon, Dr. Song - completely opposite, he and his staff uncaring - changed surgeon.
Mesa, AZ |
I may come back & review as I haven't even been able to get an appointment to see this doctor. Instead, I have been on hold for nearly 30 minutes -- 3 calls. The 1st time, the person who answered asked a myriad of questions and then put me through to the right office, which never answered. The 2nd time, I went through the same questions with a second person, was put through to the right office and after holding for 11 min. 20 sec., hung up and called a 3rd time-still put on hold. No appt yet

Best doctor around. Did an amazing job with the two surgeries that I had with him. Excellent staff. Highly recommended. Worked well around my special circumstances to get me in as soon as possible.
