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!

First real pain management doctor that didn't look down on me! He listened and he said we may have to try a couple different meds until the right fit. Dr. Hansen spent a great deal of time with me and he looks at all aspects of your health. Thank goodness he took me in! M. Cannon
