This was a checkup visit. I've known I have low HDL for over 20 yrs but Dr Hansen was the first doctor to explain how it works and why it's important. He's working on a plan to reduce the number of meds I'm taking. He took time to answer all of my questions. I'm very impressed.

Dr. Hansen took care of my father before he passed on 8/24/17 and he was straight forward on everything. That is why I am now his patient
