good

March 28, 2014

Very happy with Dr. Hansen. He has been great in getting my daughter tested and knowing what we need to do next with regards to her injurly. He was very accommodating with documentation we needed and for followup with Dr. Burr as well. Both doctors are to be commended for their work.

February 03, 2014

He spent an amazing amount of time explaining in detail what was going on. His professionalism and obvious concern were fantastic.

November 04, 2013

The doctor would ask the patient a question, but would continue talking and it would feel like 3 or 4 questions rolled into one. For someone with a concussion, this made it difficult to know how to respond. There were times it felt like he was explaining more information to the resident than to us. We received some contradictory information from what our primary care provider had given us, so it was a bit confusing for how to proceed.

July 15, 2013

Dr. Hansen was very informative, but less than friendly.

June 07, 2013

we are very pleased with everyone that we have had contact with at this office. we feel like you trully do care about all our needs.

May 17, 2013

He was much better this visit.

March 12, 2013

Dr Hansen is a great physician and we're lucky to have him at the UU.

February 26, 2013

always has been very good

January 21, 2013

Very complete exam

December 20, 2012

I took a baseline test. So some of these questions are not applicable. Overall, my experience was efficient, easy, and worth while.

November 26, 2012

My son has headaches frequently, even with out a concussion, the doctor suggested I should put him on anti-depressants. I was shocked. I feel like it was a quick and easy decision on his part, but I didn't feel like it was a good idea. I told him we would talk to our pediatrician. I have also started keeping track of his headaches. I feel like his suggestion should have been that I should keep track of his headaches and what he has been doing that day to see if we can figure out triggers and to also see if the headaches diminish over time as he heals from the concussion.

October 30, 2012

Dr. Hansen was very friendly, really took time to evaluate my daughter; I figured that was why there was such a delay

August 31, 2012

looked at all the issues and and handeled him self well and promt

February 28, 2012

good

February 23, 2012

I appreciated the doctor talking directly to my son, the patient. All too often, healthcare providers do not speak directly to patients. Thank-you.

February 23, 2012

The only thing that wasn't optimal was that I had to get a blood test and I was not informed how early in the day I needed to have it done. I waited at the outpatient lab to have work done for quite some time only to be told I'd have to return before 8:00AM another day for the test to be done properly.

February 18, 2012

I could've used a bit more explanation about what the test score from Impact meant.

January 21, 2012

At one point I felt he didn't believe my symptoms were as bad as I described them.
