Patient Comments (2)

Dr.Hanson never listens to what he is being told. He tries to bully and shame people into doing things. Have requested help with back and pain issues and refuses to help unless I see a different doctor for manipulation which he has been told doesn't work.

This physician is terrible. He fails to listen to his patient's symptoms, and goes off on his own rabbit trail. He really should not see patients who are still living. He has only contributed to the VA's less than stellar reputation for providing adequate care to patients.
