I have had both knees replaced (a year apart) by Dr. Hakanson. Recovery has been excellent. I have found her professional but willing to take the time to listen.

My daughter referred me to Dr. Hakanson, since she did the surgery on her knee back in July, she thought the doctor would be able to help with my problems I was having with my knee. Dr. Hakanson is a really good doctor, and talks to the patients in a way you understand what she says and has a really good bed side manner.

I have been seeing orthopedists for over 35 years. Dr Hakanson is one of the best I have seen. She has a great bedside manner, diagnosed me quickly and had the problem taken care of on the first visit. You can't ask for more.

THIS WAS AN INITIAL APPT. TO EVALUATE FOR KNEE REPLACEMENT. I WAS ON TIME AND WAS SEEN VERY SOON AFTER CHECK IN. DR. HAKANSON WAS VERY HELPFUL IN MAKING A DIAGNOSIS AND RECOMMENDATION FOR TREATMENT. HER STAFF WAS WELL ORGANIZED AND HELPFUL IN SCHEDULING THE THINGS I NEEDED TO ACCOMPLISH IN PREPARING FOR SURGERY. I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THIS VISIT.

Awesome experience with Dr. Hakanson...she took a lot of time with me which helped me to make a decision re: total hip surgery now or delaying it several months. Very impressed with her and would recommend her highly to anyone!

My husband is disabled because of the hip replacements she did years back. We wish we had never met her. I hope she has gained experience and received more training since she has moved to VA.

I recently visited Dr. Hakanson after being referred by my physician. I have a shoulder that is giving me a lot of trouble. I had never met her before. She is very professionable and personable. I appreciate her expertise and all that she is doing to help me. Her nurse was also top-notch and I am very glad that Dr. Nobbee recommended her. We are fortunate to have her practicing here in our valley. Mike Beamer

She was only interested in my condition only if I needed a hip replacement. Turned out I didn't and she was done. She was not interested in the fact I was still left with the question of why I am having muscle pain in the hip area. Recommendation: find another doctor if you want someone who cares about helping you and not just about a big money maker hip replacement.

I love Dr. Hakanson, hope she stays in this area. I suffered for 11 months, felt like a new person 24 hours after she did total hip replacement.

While practicing in Mount Airy, N.C., Dr. Hakanson performed 2 knee replacements on me, as well as inserting a rod in my hip after falling at church. She is the BEST!! Everyone in Mount Airy wanted Dr. Hakanson to do their ortho surgery. She is an amazing surgeon. If I ever need ortho surgery again, I will travel to Va. so that she could do it.
