    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.
