January 25, 2017

This was my annual examination and it went very well. Many of these questions don't apply. The doctor and his staff are good at their jobs.

January 23, 2017

The only downside to this physician is how long it takes to get in to see him.

January 07, 2017

I have given a number of people from my home, Elko, NV, the name of my doctor and this clinic.

December 18, 2016

Dr. Christopher Hansen is always exceptional. He listens, diagnoses and explains with true caring.

November 13, 2016

Beset dermatologist and most professional/caring visit I have had in over a year of battling this rash!

November 04, 2016

Dr. Hansen is very good. He remembered my profession (or used an information system to be reminded) and asked me about how work was. He was pleasant to talk with and "took care of business" while we talked. I also feels like he gives me good advice about how to take care of my skin.

November 04, 2016

Dr. Hansen is very personable and is patience with all of my questions.

November 01, 2016

We never thought we would like a doctor as much as Dr David Hansen (he was always our favorite for the 30 years we saw him). We are realizing that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree - we couldn't be happier with our experience with Dr Chris Hansen.

October 27, 2016

Dr. Hansens nurse is very pleasant and thorough.

October 24, 2016

I have been to Dr. Hansen in the past to remove moles, and for an overall checkup on various spots, etc. I am very pleased with his service.

October 22, 2016


September 29, 2016

The care provider told me that the medicine he was prescribing was expensive. That was ABSOLUTELY correct!

September 25, 2016

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Christopher Hansen! He is so thoughtful, and really cares about people.

September 22, 2016

Look forward to follow up treatments for my problems. Previous treatments were successful.

September 09, 2016

He is one of the best doctor's and great Bedside Manor!

September 08, 2016

Dr. Chris Hansen is wonderful. My plan is never to change doctors again, unless he plans to retire soon!

August 29, 2016

August 17, 2016

great experience.

August 12, 2016

Dr. Hansen has a great bedside manner. He was kind to my children and they were comfortable in his care.

June 13, 2016

very god

June 10, 2016

I have been going to Dr. Chris Hansen for some time now and hope to never have to change dermatologists. I have complete and utter confidence in him and his staff.

June 04, 2016

Dr. Hanson addressed all my concerns. A pleasant appointment.

May 27, 2016

I liked how thorough Dr. Hansen was, and how he just shaved off my moles he was concerned about for testing instead of just going right to cutting them out. My results came back quickly, and the Nurse was efficient and explained the results well.

May 20, 2016

great experience

May 18, 2016

An excellent experience with Dr. Hansen. He took the time to look at each of the "spots" that were concerning to us and explain what they were, treated what was necessary and gave clear instructions as to what we should watch for in addition to a time frame for follow-up.

May 18, 2016

Dr. Hansen is very professional, affable, explains things well, doesn't speak down or act like he's better than you. Great guy.

May 15, 2016

Dr. Hansen is an excellent skilled physician who treats me with respect, understanding, and doesn't talk down to me. He demonstrates that he cares about my condition/s.

May 10, 2016

Dr. Chris Hansen is amazing. I have already referred him to someone else. He is the best dermatologist I have ever been to!

April 24, 2016

Dr. Hansen was kind and caring and took the time to answer questions my mother had about issues that were not covered by his area of specialization, which we really appreciated.

April 23, 2016

Great information received from Dr Hansen. Answered all my questions in terms I could understand. Referral from my husband and my daughter-in-law who were also very pleased with Dr Hansen's care.

April 21, 2016

I would definitely recommend Dr. Hansen to anyone.

April 18, 2016

Doctor Hansen is great.

April 16, 2016


April 15, 2016


March 24, 2016

Dr. Hansen made me feel like I was his only patient all day. He was fantastic!

March 17, 2016

Dr. Hansen was very knowledgable and had great bedside manner. I had already been to a dermatologist numerous times, who came highly recommended and they didn't even compare to Dr. Hansen! He listened, was very thorough and acknowledged my concerns. I'm finally feeling better and that's after one visit. I'm a patient for life!

March 14, 2016

Dr. Hansen showed care and concern. I'm very happy to have him as one of my doctors

March 06, 2016

I could not ask for better treatment. They took special care to make sure I knew everything about my procedure. They took more time at this than other places I have been to. It sure increases the trust in them.

March 05, 2016

Dr. Is great!

February 27, 2016

Dr Hansen is excellent

February 26, 2016

I've already recommended this provider to a co-worker as i was so delighted with my experience.

February 19, 2016

Exceeded my expectations.

February 18, 2016

My experience is always positive with this office and Health Care Provider. I would not go anywhere else.

February 15, 2016

Appreciate that I was given an option that was less expensive and less invasive! Feel like doctor looking out for best interest of patient and not just trying to make a buck!

February 10, 2016

I was not impressed with the provider I'd seen in the past and had requested to change providers. Dr. Chris Hansen was friendly and took care of my concern rather than just tell me there was nothing to be done.

February 08, 2016

I have recommended Dr. Hansen to friends multiple times.

February 06, 2016

A great doctor. Hoping my wife will schedule an appointment

February 04, 2016

Dr. Hansen is very kind, professional, and sets you at ease from the beginning. I appreciate that he remembers me and is always warm and friendly and thorough. He also addressed my concerns immediately rather than making me set another appointment and wait.

January 12, 2016

I've seen two other physicians at the clinic and finally was assigned to Dr. Hansen. I feel that he is concerned about my ilness and that he cares about me as a patient and a person. It is reassuring to me to have him as my physician.

January 11, 2016

He was very nice and took the time to go over all my concerns

Dr. Hanson is not only professional , but very caring.

November 03, 2015

Dr. Hansen is professional and caring. When friends/family ask who I see, I am happy to recommend him. That hasn't always been the case with other dermatologists.

November 02, 2015


October 28, 2015

Dr. Hansen is a very good physician and is very competent in the work he performs. I appreciate all that he does. He almost makes it worth the pain he gives, ha, ha..

October 20, 2015


October 14, 2015


October 07, 2015

I was a bit confused as to the transition from 1 medication to another. I will have to call for further information as there is nothing in the document provided to me when I left. The asssitant was taking notes so I thought that information would be provided when I left.

September 27, 2015

Dr. Hansen is very personable and kind. He explained the results of his exam and what we needed to do for treatment.

September 25, 2015

I recommend dr Hansen to ally friends.

September 25, 2015


September 21, 2015

It is so nice to finally feel that the doctor really knows what the diagnosis is.

September 21, 2015

Dr Hansen was amazing. I had a great experience and would highly recommend him to others.

September 09, 2015

August 31, 2015

Dr Hansen was very thorough in his exam and took the time to answer any questions I had.

August 21, 2015

The Dr. called me himself after he had reviewed the tests and previous biopsies......very unexcpected and welcome

August 17, 2015

Doctor is skilled in his field and knew how to address issue where doctors struggled.

August 10, 2015

I deal with physician offices at my work on a daily basis. If there is a better, more informed, more caring physician than Christopher Hansen in Utah, I have not heard of them. I suggest his name twice a week for someone looking for a dermatologist.

August 09, 2015

Dr. Hansen was thorough and explained what he thought my skin problem was.

August 01, 2015

I was well educated very professional

July 12, 2015

Dr. C. Hansen is the best. I have recommended him and will continue to recommend him.

July 11, 2015

Dr. Hansen carefully explained the several levels of severity associated with the rare diagnosis I have. This was extremely helpful in alleviating my concerns and assisting me with informing my other health care providers about this diagnosis and treatment.

June 27, 2015

he is an amazing doctor! Great bedside manner!

June 18, 2015

Loved Dr Hansen. he was personable and very thorough.

June 12, 2015

I was so impressed with the resident Sarah! She talked to be about my moles abs options for removal! dr Hansen was also great! my baby was crying towards the end of the appointment and he rocked her car seat to calm her! it was so nice!

June 10, 2015

Everyone in Chris Hansen's office have never been anything but pleasant and helpful.

June 10, 2015

Dr Hansen is great. Explained everything and very reassuring.

May 16, 2015

Always good!

May 08, 2015

Overall positive experience.

April 26, 2015

Over the past ten plus years I have visited nurmerous health care providers trying to get to the root of my condition. Throughout this experience I have only seen a handful of physicians who exhibit empathetic practice and mastery of their medical specialty. Dr. Chris Hansen is notably the ONLY doctor who truly cares for the well being of his patients and devises a treatment plan which is pragmatic in nature, yet advanced in research application. Every time I leave his office I am refreshed by new resources for disease management, as well as optimistic that positive health outcomes are feasible.

April 18, 2015

Not sure my skin problem has been resolved. Concerned that I'll have to pay another co-pay to have him work on my moles again.

April 05, 2015

Dr. Chris Hansen is the best! I have, and will continue to, recommend him specifically and the U of U Dermatology Department to all who need to see a dermatologist.

April 04, 2015

I liked Dr. Hanson very much!

March 25, 2015

Dr. Hansen is the best doctor I have ever seen! I will always use UOU Healthcare for all of my needs as he alone has expressed how every doctor should act. He was very concerned with my pilonidal cyst condition. I have been suffering from this cyst for years and I never felt like any health professional truly cared until visiting Dr.Hansen. He had the knowledge to let me know how severe my cyst was, and got right on scheduling an appointment with one his closely recommended surgeons to get me taken care of.

March 24, 2015

I have already recommended Dr. Hanson to several of my co-workers who need an outstanding Dermatologist.

March 23, 2015

I feel very confident in his ability to take care of me!

March 11, 2015

Dr. Hansen was very patient, thorough, and made sure I understood everything I needed to know before I left the office.

February 16, 2015

Always a good experience. Very professional and knowledable.

February 06, 2015

First doctor I have seen about my condition that actually seems to have an end treatment in mind. It is a very difficult condition to treat and he was willing to take every necessary step to help figure it out.

February 05, 2015

Again, just because a care provider has a great bedside manner does not mean he is a great physician. I think this survey puts the power in the consumer and not in the pysician

January 26, 2015

care provider and doctor were excellent in explaining all meds and care

December 27, 2014

Please see previous comments in the first section. To reiterate, Dr. Hansen was very friendly, compassionate and knowledgable. He spent a significant amount of time reviewing/discussing my complicated medical history and my current urgent concerns. (without his hand on the door handle attempting to flee! ) The biopsy was a breeze and I felt very relieved and confident with the diagnosis and treatment plan. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Hansen to friends and colleagues.

December 19, 2014


December 13, 2014

I really appreciate the way Emily typed up all the directions as Dr. Hansen was explaining them to me (I am not aware of any other doctor who provides this service) and then she gave me a copy of them and went over them again with me, to make sure I didn't have any questions.

December 09, 2014

Dr. Hansen was kind, thoughtful and gentle

December 07, 2014

provider was very freindly and made me feel that I was important and cared about.

December 05, 2014

I have recommended Dr. Hansen to several people. He is outstanding as are the people who work with him.

December 04, 2014

dr Hansen is always caring and friendly. he's very knowledgeable and helpful.

November 24, 2014

Never felt rushed.Offered advise and concern

November 23, 2014

Dr. Hansen was very thorough, thoughtful, and gentle. He walked me through every step of the exam, listened to my concerns, and addressed them to my satisfaction. I appreciated the time he spent with me and didn't feel like he was rushed at all. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone wanting a recommendation for a dermatologist.

November 21, 2014

I dont doubt that dr c Hansen is a good doctor I just didn't feel I meshed well with him. I didn't feel like he was very friendly. he was pretty matter of fact, get the job done, and leave.

November 20, 2014

just because all answers are 5 does not mean I only know 1 number....just the kind of doc outfit it is

November 20, 2014

He remembered me from previous visits and explained everything he was doing and looking for so I knew if I can missed something on my self examinations, he wouldn't.

November 17, 2014

I was very comfortable with Dr. Hansen's approach.

November 16, 2014

Dr. Hansen is an excellent provider! I always feel at ease and comfortable to ask any questions on my mind.

November 15, 2014

I refer everyone I know

November 08, 2014

I have already recommended this provider to friends! He seems genuinely concerned for his patients.

October 31, 2014

I did not answer the question about recommending the doctor to others. While I was very satisfied with my time with him, I probably interacted with him for only 10 minutes and it is too soon to know how likely I would be to recommend him. So far so good--I just need more data.

October 23, 2014

dr Hansen was most caring and nice. I will recommend him. he seems very knowledgable and caring. he was sensitive to my needs.

October 22, 2014

Dr, Hansen was very gentle and very thorough.

October 20, 2014

Dr. Hansen was fantastic! He made me feel at ease about my condition and took time to listen and explain what I had and what to expect going forward.

October 19, 2014

I was overall very impressed by Dr. Hansen. He took my opinions and thoughts into account and I really appreciated the care with which he addressed me concerns.

October 05, 2014

I liked Dr. Hansen..seemed very knowledgeable...hoping he can solve my problem

September 30, 2014

Great doctor I am always very pleased when I leave

September 22, 2014

I feel very comfortable referring others to Dr. Hansen.

September 21, 2014

he is the first doctor to really listen to me and hear what I was saying. he didn't talk down to me.

September 19, 2014

He is the absolute best dermatologist! I will always go to him. He is very good at what he does and my skin is the best it has been in years thanks to him. I recommended my sister to him and she has loved the care she has receive and the results.

September 05, 2014

Hansen was great.

September 05, 2014

I had called for appt to have cyst removed, but they just looked for skin problems and I will have to come back to have the cyst removed.

August 10, 2014

Dr. Hansen's concern and medical information and procedures offered me hope as a patient. That is a huge gift when one has lived in pain for three years and faces the emotional trauma of devastating hair loss.

July 23, 2014

I appreciate Dr. Hansen's sincere concern and good care for my needs.

July 18, 2014

Yes yes cool folks.

June 28, 2014

Appreciated the concern about the cost of a prescription and options given. I have already recommended this provider to a friend!

June 16, 2014

Excellent. Glad I made the appointment.

June 14, 2014

chris hansen is a great doctor

June 05, 2014

I asked a lot of questions, and Dr. Hansen answered all of them in a clear, friendly way.

May 20, 2014

I had a resident names Matthew! He was amazing! Dr. Hansen was as well, but that's to be expected.

May 16, 2014

I am very fortunate to have Dr. Hansen as my dermatologist. I feel certain that he is the best one in this area to monitor and provide the necessary care for all of my dermatological issues. Also his 'bedside manner' is tops. I couldn't be more pleased.

May 11, 2014

I was so happy with the doctor I saw that I have sent my sister in to go see him. I recommend him to anyone. He was awesome and really cared about all the skin problems I have had. He was very kind and gave me very clear instructions with the medications and treatments I was given.

May 06, 2014

the doctor explained my medications very well... he was very clear about side effects I could expect. I felt prepared when the side effects happened as explained.

April 29, 2014

Dr. Hansen was so calming and made me feel like everything was workable and doable.

April 29, 2014

He was recommended to me by another patient and I'm glad she did. He was awesome !

April 19, 2014

This was my first time visiting Dr. Hansen. I had an overall very good experience. He was very understanding and so nice to work with, and he explained everything very thoroughly.

April 11, 2014

I have lived long enough to see a great change how patients are treated by doctors and staffs. For years it was EXPECTED that a patient would wait as long as necessary to earn the privilege of consulting with a doctor, which usually lasted about 2 minutes and very little eye contact. Wait times could be 2 hours or longer, with no information from the staff as to what was taking so long. My father, now 95, began staging his own type of protest when he was in his 60's. He did it at a doctor's or dentist's office. 1) He would call before leaving the house to see if the doctor was on schedule, 2) if he was told yes, he arrived on time for his appt., then politely explained to the receptionist that he would be happy to wait 15 minutes if necessary, but no longer than that, 3) If 15 minutes passed without being taken back to see the doc, he would quietly announce he was leaving, and he would go home. He would get responses, like "Wait, you can't just leave!" One time the doctor immediately called Dad at home and asked why he left, so Dad explained why he started doing this. He said, "You see, I finally realized that I am paying YOU for your time and expertise. You are not paying me for mine." Made sense, but that was QUITE unheard of back then! So thank you for being so respectful of my feelings and my time. I am HAPPY to pay for that type of treatment! You're awesome....

March 19, 2014

I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Hansen

March 18, 2014

I have recommended this Dr Hansen to 2 other people. His bedside manner is great, very calming.

March 17, 2014

Already have recommended this provider.

March 13, 2014

excellent experience

February 23, 2014

Very positive......thank you

February 21, 2014

I recently had two appointments, one with dermatology and one with Women's health. Both appointments were great as far as the care provider. The care was excellent, their concern was high and very professional.

February 21, 2014

Dr. Hansen and his nursing staff (Emily) are easy to communicate with and thorough. Dr. Hansen's bedside manner is exceptional- he always takes the time to explain procedures and diagnoses. Not only is my experience ALWAYS positive during office visits, even telephone interactions with his staff make you feel well taken care of under his supervision. I will continue to see Dr. Hansen for my autoimmune related concerns for years to come and highly recommend his expertise to my friends/family.

February 10, 2014

Wow - the problem showed signs of improvement the day after the visit. Thank you so much for helping with my mother's problem. It already looks 100% better.

February 06, 2014

first dr I've met with that recognized (psoriasis) the problem and began treatment

February 01, 2014

A thoroughly excellent experience on all fronts. I only wish everywhere else were as friendly, professional and customer-service oriented. The world would be a better place...

January 31, 2014

Dr. Hansen really helped me to understand what is happening, was very thorough and thoughtful, and I am confident that the follow-up steps will really help. I feel assured that I am in good hands as we figure out what to do next.

January 30, 2014

Love Dr. Hansen. Great to work with, has been a very pleasant experience

January 23, 2014

I was impressed with the entire staff

January 21, 2014

Dr. Hansen was thorough and explained everything well.

January 21, 2014

Dr. Hansen was eager for me to ask any questions I may have.

December 25, 2013

excellent care, great communication and overall great experience.

December 22, 2013

This was my second visit with Dr. Hansen and I am extremely impressed with him. He takes time to speak to his patients to fully explain the issue and options, he is very concerned about the quality of his clinic and staff, and it is clear that he really cares about his patients. I am very grateful to be in his care.

December 19, 2013

Dr. Hansen is a very competent and excellent doctor

December 16, 2013

Sometimes I feel like it's a waste of time coming to dermatology appointments...everything is always called 'normal' and there is never anything they can do about it. I'm not going to schedule another dermatology appointment and spend the money, I'll just see my regular doc.

November 25, 2013

Dr Hansen is wonderful. Very patient and understanding. I feel very lucky to have found him.

November 14, 2013

He was really great and made me feel very comfortable.

November 14, 2013

November 12, 2013

good experience

October 28, 2013

Already have recommended this provider!

October 17, 2013

Dr. Hanson is great. I will recommend him to others. Really well informed and explained things clearly to me. Understanding, he took time with me and I was completely satisfied with the visit. I will return next year.

October 14, 2013

The doctor did not even give me a full exam. He only looked at the upper half of my body. I have a lot of moles and freckles from head to toe and he barely looked at anything. My oncologist was concerned about the look of a couple of the moles and I don't feel as if the doctor took the time to share her concern or dispel it.

October 10, 2013

I have recommended a lot of people. I am comfortable with him, I am confident in his ability to help me, and I feel like he is very genuine. He's not super talkative, but always listens and responds to concerns. which is the most important. He had a very friendly and smart resident following him during my visit.

October 07, 2013

Dr. Hansen is an amazing patient care oriented physician. Whenever I visit his office I'm amazed at his willingness to go out of his way for his patients. He is well versed in immunological and dermatological issues commonly facing individuals with Autoimmune Conditions. He surpasses my expectations in his bed side manner, patient education, and individualized treatment plans. I will continue to visit his office and am grateful that I have the opportunity to see such a well versed medical educator.

September 02, 2013

dr Hanson is always very interested in what I say and very clear in the treatment he decides I should follow

August 29, 2013

Always feel very comfortable with the staff and Dr. Hansen. Dr. Hansen takes time to fully explain symptoms, and action to take . Does not rush thru the exam and or discussion. Answers any and all of my questions to my satisfaction.

August 26, 2013

Dr. Hansen was professional, friendly and courteous. He did not make me feel as though he was in a hurry. He explained everything to me and talked about different options of care.

August 09, 2013

Dr. Hansen is always very caring. He takes time to listen and explain things to me. I always feel that he cares.

July 20, 2013

Dr. Hansen is always patient and thorough.

June 21, 2013

Dr Hanson is an excellent physician & does a good job.

June 10, 2013

Would definitely recommend Dr. Hansen and his staff to anyone!

May 28, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Hansen to more than 20 good friends.

May 27, 2013

I was with the assistant for the first few minutes as she assessed my condition and placed them in the records. The doctor came in and looked at my hand and feet and recommended medication for my condition. We discussed ways to treat it. all told the doctor spent at least 20 minutes discussing my condition and treatment.

Dr. Hansen is always kind and concerned. He is a very serious, professional and correctly identifies the issues for which I'm seeing him. Also checks up on any other issue which might be bothersome for me. Dr. Hansen is so very patient with my questions even when I forget and ask again. Dr. Hansen is a terrific partner in referring me to another physician when necessary.

I have full confidence in Dr. Hansen. He treats me as an intelligent human being, answers all questions and addresses any and all concerns.

April 27, 2013

I was previously seeing another Dermatologist in your system and had difficulty getting appointments and LONG waits in the lobby. It was suggested that I try Dr Hansen and am thrilled with the switch. Not only is he friendly and compassionate, he is easy to get in to see.

April 26, 2013

Feel very comfortable with Dr. Hansen-Shows concern for his patient and conveys treatments and follow-up things to do in a clear and understanding manner. Puts patient at ease and takes time to listen to the patient.

April 02, 2013

Very good service

April 01, 2013

Left appointment with a general idea about application of medicine. If a sketch of a face, with the doctor highlighting areas of application had been available it would have been a clear map to follow. Especially for visual learners.

April 01, 2013

Exceptional care by Dr. Hansen. He was very friendly, prompt and listened to my problem. Very professional and caring.

The experience was good. I would recommend this place.

February 19, 2013

I had been seen for this concern over in Tooele and was told it was just an age spot and the others not to be concerned about. We would just watch the spot on the upper left arm. I wanted them removed, however the providor told me a lenghty story of how this facuility would chagre me $300.00 plus dollars to have it removed here, plus her fees. So the visit to Tooele cost me alot of money with zero result. Dr. Hansen provided me with the education I needed to understand, He is a great person and excellent doctor.

July 17, 2012

I love Dr. Chris Hansen...He is a very good Dr. I will always be back!

July 08, 2012

The resident was very friendly and did a good examination. Dr Hansen seemed more remote than usual as though he had some other concerns on his mind. He still did a good job clinically; he was just a but robotic at this visit.

June 17, 2012

Perfect in every way!

We had been referred to Dr. Christopher Hansen by my sister. My husband had had appointments for cancer checks, pre-cancerous spots removed and mole removal and was well-pleased.
