I was anxious and difficult patient, he really helped me through that, he explained things with the science of everything and cut through my worries. I felt confident in his ability and trusted everything would be OK Despite the long wait, he really takes time with his patients. He answers all questions, thoroughly. He listens to your concerns and validates your feelings. Great bedside manner

If I could rate Dr. Hanft 10 STARS, I would! I have traveled across multiple countries overseas seeking medical advice for my pituitary problems. Dr. Hanft was the sole physician that gave me the results we sought. Along with his superb medical expertise, he was a very nice and caring individual. He is super neurosurgeon!

Dr. Hanft has a superb way of making his patients feel relaxed and at ease with such a complex surgery, such as mine. He answered my questions and eased my worries with attention and ample care. I had a great outcome from my pituitary brain surgery.
