About Me

Care Philosophy

Foot and ankle injuries can be very disruptive. I try to establish a treatment plan that not only yields the best, longterm results but also works with the lifestyle of my patient. I want to get them back to their activities with as little interruption as possible.

Had mri's done on both feet and apparently it is just too much to ask for the results or what the doctor thinks. I don't think I am being unreasonable since it has been a month. I guess they pick and choose who they want to work with, and that is fine, but how about just come out and say so instead of leaving people hanging.

I would highly recommend Dr. Hanson. Had a broken ankle, had surgery and it went extremely well. Appointments are easy, not a long wait time and his office staff is great. He came highly recommended by my doctor at the medical center and luckily he was close to home. Would recommend him to anyone who had a similar problem.

I came to Dr Hanson for a second opinion... I have had foot pain for 18mos and was told I had a stress reaction that hasn't healed... Dr. Hanson felt it was some arthritis in my foot and not the stress reaction... He recommended I get a cortisone injection in the joint to calm the inflammation down.... I got the injection 2 days later and he was right! Finally pain free?? Thank you Dr. Hanson

Office visit about three minutes. It seems to me like he did not care about my condition.
