Dr. Hanauer is amazing. I was sick for 15 years before I came to see him. I am now in remission for over two years. He is one of the best gastro doctors in the country. His staff is also amazing they take care of whatever you need promptly.

Dr Hanauer is an incredible doctor! He’s experience, communication , and bedside manner are THE best I’ve ever seen. We have been lucky enough to be under his care and it has changed (saved) our life for the better. We drove 4 hours each way to be under his care and it’s worth every minute. Thank you for being the best at what you do! We needed it.

I've been a patient of Dr. Hanauer since 2008 when in one visit he fixed a problem with my J pouch that had baffled my Wisconsin doctors of over a year. Outstanding communicator. Very patient focused. Does only what's needed and necessary and explains what's happening and why. For doctors like him, there should be more than five stars.

He conducted my colonoscopy and allowed me to be primarily conscious during the procedure. During the follow-up, he answered all ten of my questions and was extremely patient with me.
