      Dr. Hansen is an amazing neurological professional. When my husband had an "unexpected" aneurysm (subarachnoid hemorrhage), Dr. Hansen was there every step of the way to answer questions and guidance. I recommend him and his team with full confidence!

      Dr Hansen spent over an hour with my wife and I explaining the procedure he was doing the next day. His bedside manner is awesome and I felt total at ease with him.

      Very knowledgeable, personable, takes time to explain to you to make sure you understand what he’s talking about and what stage you are in your disease process . All questions answered before he leaves the room.

      Dr. Hansen explained to me very clearly what plan of action we were going to take with my health care, his medical knowledge is very impressive and I would recommend him highly to anyone! He was very empathetic, caring and sensitive to my busy lifestyle. He has a great personality with a good sense of humor, and he earned my respect and trust very quickly. Prior to my visit, I was disappointed with the care I was receiving from another provider and felt immediately comfortable with Dr. Hansen.

      Dr. Hansen is very knowledgeable and informative about the condition that you are in. He is very compassionate and understanding and his staff at the Fort Worth office are great, friendly and helpful. My family and my experience with him and his office has been by far the best I have come into contact with.
