Words cannot adequately describe how highly we regard Dr. Hansen. There was zero wait time for the appt. Her fellow remembered us from my last appt. The knowledge, concern, patience...Dr. Hansen exudes....just made both my husband and myself so confident in her care and made us feel so much better. She gave us all the time we needed to ask EVERY question we had. I am so lucky to have her as my doctor.
