What People Say About Dr. Robert Hansen, MD

Dr. Hansen just wants to deal with people who just want meds. I was unfortunate enough to meet and get belittled by him. I was hoping he would listen to my story but I never got to speak. I had to stay with him due to his awful name calling and terrible notes labeling me an attention seeker. I got no referrals to other others to find out about my condition and he misdiagnosed me! I will always need pain meds because he didn’t believe me. I am now with a good doctor!

Dr. Hansen is an outstanding Neurologist and over the last 15 years I have been to a few. Not only is his medical knowledge and insight of the highest degree, he is very thorough, spends time with each patient's needs, listens and has the utmost best interest in you as an individual and your physical conditions; without ridicule. His bedside manner leaves you believing and knowing he cares. With 14 full time doctors, Dr. Hansen is a rare relief being under his care.

There aren’t words to express my gratitude for Dr. Hansen and his staff. After a spine injury and years of procedures, meds, and physicians who belittled me and made me feel like a criminal, I was blessed to find Dr. Hansen. He was the first physician willing to listen without judgement and treat me with dignity. I am now able to return to life as an RN and human being after being a prisoner of pain for many years. You will not find a more competent, caring physician and staff. He is awesome.

I have been seeing Dr. Hansen for well over 15 years. After a devastating spinal cord injury and multiple surgeries at MCV I was sent to their pain clinic. They placed me on medication and I had a followup appointment every month. Only problem - it was a 4 hour drive and when you are sick and cant drive. It is very difficult to find someone to drive you every month. So, my primary care doctor started writing my prescriptions and I started looking for a doctor closer. Dr. Hansen.

If you are looking for pain management, be aware that you must join his "concierge program". Which means that you need to pay $1500 a year ($1300 if you pay all at once) and most insurances do not cover this.

Both my wife and I are new patients Dr. Hansen's clinic. We actually followed Dr. Holzer from Bon Secours to Dr. Hansen's clinic and are so happy we did. Dr. Holzer's "whole body" approach to pain management has helped me for almost 4 years and now I know my wife will get the best attention and care she could ever get. Also, the staff at the clinic are the best. They always greet you with a smile and make sure you are taken care of from the moment we walk in the door.

Dr Hansen has been my pain physicians for many years. First went to him when he was with Bob Secours in Portsmouth. He is one of the best doctors I have ever met. Have told multiple friends and even strangers about him. He quite literally gave me my life back.

I've even calling this office for 2 weeks leaving messages and my phone number. I've gotten not even 1 return call. What is the problem? It's crazy when a Dr's office can't even return call for an appointment.

Dr. Hansen is an excellent doctor. He listens, suggests, and never tries to force any unwanted procedures. My last pain management doctor pressured me into taking seven shots in my back that made me very ill. Not only did the medicine not work, but it made me lose trust in his opinion. After talking to Dr. Hansen, I learned more about my pain, and I was no longer afraid or embarrassed to talk about how I felt. Dr. Hansen is the best.

After a year and a half, countless medical providers, tests, tears, and frustration, I was hopeless and my quality of life was abysmal. I finally found Dr. Hansen who listened, gave me an actual diagnosis and treated me...without judgment. He is compassionate, very knowledgeable and practical. He takes the time to explain the what & why. I am able live a relatively normal life and enjoy playing with my kids at this point. I honestly don't know what I'd do without him!
