What People Say About Dr. Pamela Hansen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The not-so-thorough explanation of my spine condition was completely conducted by her aide who provided no help or guidance at all on what to do to help my problem. My only advice from Dr. Hansen was that I might be too young for surgery because it might cause problems in a few years, and so there is only pain management and physical therapy. She also was unable to be contacted regularly, including not returning calls to disability agents, resulting in a claims denial.

I thought Dr. Hansen was very thorough. She was professional and went over my prognosis with me in detail.

Absolutely horrible and seems to lack a thorough education. I have problems with my spine, my body is twisted, neck vertebrae popping in and out all the time, and CNS issues. But supposedly, nothing wrong with me, no claimed no pinched nerve but they didn't have the evidence to say so from an incomplete MRI, and apparently neck problems can't cause neurologic symptoms. The same was said for whiplash. This person does not having the education and expertise to treat people in any way. AVOID!
