From what i have read on behalf of his other patients, Dr. Hanauer's expertise is Crohns and Ulcerative colitis. ALL his patients speak extremely highly of him. Why? He is caring and kind, and truly takes an interest in your concerns, fears and questions.

Doctor Hanauer is one of the most compassionate & best Doctors I have seen in my lifetime. I followed him to Northwestern. It is a longer & more difficult drive for me to Northwestern, but he is worth it. I am really amazed at the quality of care,the relaxed atmosphere at the time of the visit. They never act like they are in a hurry to get you out the door & on to the next patient. They always totally focus on you & your health at the time. They also focus on your future, which is very important also. I feel like I am certainly getting the best care I can get.
