Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Hansen and his team saved my life! I had a tubular adenoma (tumor). He and his team performed a “Whipple”. I am 59, cancer free and as healthy as I’ve ever been. He is the best in my book!

Excellent bed side manner. Makes you feel comfortable and explains, results and procedures and future appts with clarity so you can understand. Makes you feel like he really cares about your health and well being. So glad he was referred by Dr. Kim Swartz as being one of the best in his field. Would highly recommend him.
