The absolute best. I would not even consider going to another surgeon other than Dr. Hanson. For every appointment I have pertaining to my breast cancer, when I say that Dr. Hanson is my surgeon the response is “She’s the best!” I do not have to be told, I know from experience that she’s wonderful.
