I have been seeing Dr. Hansen for a wound on my foot and I'm happy to say that all better. It has completely healed. I can walk and stand which was difficult for me before. It has been an extremely positive coming to see the doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Hansen.

I recently had my bunion and hammer toe surgery with Dr. Hansen. I have had no pain and my foot feels and looks so much better than before. I would highly recommend Dr. Hansen for any foot issue or surgery. The hospital (NYPQ) was also great from the nurses to the anesthesiologist.

My experience with Dr. Hansen has always been a pleasant one. He always has his patients best interest at heart. I have been coming to him for over 10 years and couldn't be happier. I have recommended others and they also have been happy with their experiences as well. I had a procedure done and Dr. Hansen was always attentive when I had questions or needed to be seen at the last minute. His staff are well trained and super friendly. Overall, this office is very professional and I highly recommend it.

I bring my family member from Brentwood to see Dr. Hansen. I lived near the office many years ago. It's easy access the office via bus or train. The doctor and staff are efficient and polite. When I was here last we purchased shoes from the doctor that have helped tremendously. We never have a long wait. I would and have recommend Dr. Hansen.

Upon coming to the office the staff is friendly,courteous and professional. Dr. Hansen is very friendly and easy to talk to.I did not have a long wait. I had not seen the doctor in four years. I came in for a heel spur and he was very knowledgeable and explained in detail what was going on and what needed to be done. He offered my a brace for issue and is referring me to therapy. I'm very happy to his conservative approach to my condition. I was told by another doctor...

Dr. Hansen was so friendly during my visit. He was very knowledgeable in his field and listened to my concerns. He asked questions and allowed me to think and respond to them, which in turn helped him find issues and probable solutions. His staff was friendly as well and the wait time was very short. I'd recommend him and his staff to any of my family and friends.
