January 17, 2014

This was the first time in 25 years in this office that I felt I really did not get examined. The PA talked with me from a few feet away, walked around the table, done. Dr. Hanson came in for a couple of min. drew a line on my head, done. The PA did a Bx. I am used to a little discription of what they think it could be, with best and worst case plans. Nothing like that.

January 16, 2014

great experience

January 14, 2014

Dr. Hansen is the best and we recommend him to all our family and friends. I had children in tow with me the day of my appointment and the staff helped me with them while i was having my exam. I appreciated the kindness that was shown to me that day.

October 16, 2013

Dr. Hansen is the best!

October 14, 2013

Dr. Hansen is THE best doctor I have ever worked with. His bedside manner and integrity is above reproach. He knows his business and essentially because of his expertise, concern, and care, he likely saved my life and to this point cancer free. It doesn't get any better than this. And no - I am not a family member! :)

September 23, 2013

My experience with Dr. Hansen has always been top-notch. He is great and puts me at ease. Also very efficient (doesn't waste my time)--but doesn't make you feel like he's rushing. I appreciate that he has someone there writing down notes for me--so I don't have to hope I've got instructions correct.

September 06, 2013

June 08, 2013

I had a personal question for the Doctor and the assistand was very discreet about leaving the room when the Doctor said let mee take a look. Excellent care. It would have been ok if the Doctor had said my assistant needs to be here for the exam.

June 03, 2013

Dr. Dave Hansen is excellent!!

May 24, 2013

Dr. Hansen acts like I am his only patient and his only concern, which makes him an outstanding physician and I am sure leads to delays, but I appreciate the time he spends with each patient.

April 26, 2013

Like I Said Earlier, Good Doc And Knows His Stuff!

April 01, 2013

Answered all our questions and treated all our concerns. Only suggestion might be to do a "full body" exam to check on any things that we can't see or may potentially be a problem in the future at our age.

March 13, 2013

Dr. Hansen is the very best at all the above attributes listed. I hate the thought that he may some day retire from his practice.

March 02, 2013

the allotted time for the doctor to be with patient is less than satisfactory

February 25, 2013

I have been seeing provider for 20+ years and have always had confidence, good communication and a great patient experience.

February 25, 2013

Dr. C. David Hansen is outstanding, thorough, very clear. Friendly and efficient as well.

February 25, 2013

Dr Hansen is better than very good. Two of my children go to him as well. I woiuld recommend him to any and everyone

February 25, 2013

Would help if Dr H read through chart before coming in, have to refresh him on who I am, what my concern is, etc.

February 22, 2013

I recommend Dr. Hansen to many people.

November 22, 2012

Dr. Hansen is a great doctor...excellent service and excellent bedside manner

September 18, 2012

I've been in this provider's care for several years and often recommend him to others.

September 17, 2012

Dr Hansen is first rate.

September 14, 2012

Dr. Hansen is the best.

September 10, 2012

Doctor took time to address and treat an additional issue that I didn't remember to tell the NP about.

September 08, 2012

I love Dr. Hansen, but this day he seemed just a bit distracted. Instead of talking to me, he spoke directly with the intern who was shadowing him. He usually speaks more to the patient. Anyway, as he was leaving, he mentioned he was not giving me an antibiotic....the next day, I called the office because I had an ear ache. I asked for an antibiotic and was told no, to go to my regular GP. My GP was out of town, but I felt that Dr. Hansen knew of the infection in my cheek, and should have listened to me. I was rather insulted. I do not ask for "drugs" unless I feel the need. (He asked me to call if anything was wrong, I called, and I don't feel like I was properly addressed.

September 04, 2012

Dr. C. David Hansen is a wonderful, competent, knowledgeable doctor. We like him a lot.

August 25, 2012

I have been Dr. Hansen's patient since the very first year he began practice in Utah. I would never go to anyone else because of the my great trust in him as a physician and respect I have for him as an individual.

August 22, 2012

No one can do a better job than Dave Hansen!!!!!!

August 20, 2012

When I have the choice, I see Dr. Hansen. He is professional, knowledgeable, concerned, kind, and empathetic. I have never been uncomfortable seeing him. I have a couple of doctors who make me feel comfortable like that--and it keeps me coming back. I think it is a rare gift to be so smart & good at what you do, yet make others feel so comfortable in these often uncomfortable situations.

August 17, 2012

I ALWAYS recommend this care provider

August 11, 2012


August 06, 2012

We have told a lot of our friends about dr. Hansen he is a great and caring dr.

July 26, 2012

July 25, 2012

A wonderful doctor. Took the time to answer questions.

Dr. Hansen and his staff are the best! We love them!

July 02, 2012

I know the doctor was in a hurry and didn't stay as long as he would have if he wasn't so behind and rushed to get to the other patients waiting. I probably didn't get the full treatment I should of because of this!

May 15, 2012

I have known Dr. Hansen for a long time. He is very friendly and yet very professional.

May 12, 2012

My condition was diagnosed as exema after three visits but not cure was identified.

May 01, 2012

Awesome Job Dr. Hansen. The U of U should pay yuo twise what you are getting because you run circles around the other Dr.'s in your fieled in the entire SLC valley.

April 25, 2012

I've gone to Dr. Hansen for a long time and wouldn't switch now, but the office procedures seem to be lacking efficiency.

April 25, 2012

Just excellent!

April 03, 2012

Very personable and professional

January 12, 2012

Dr. Hansen has always been excellent.

January 12, 2012

I have recommended this provider to many over the years, and even stayed with this provider when insurance changed. I trust him for checking for cancerous conditions as I age, and am grateful that as I have aged there are cosmetic considerations that he explains for treatment in a medical environment.

January 11, 2012

Dr. Hansen is professional, kind, concerned, and knowledgeable. I always feel like he is thorough & will take the time to answer questions & explain what is going on.

January 10, 2012

Dr. Hansen is my very favorite doctor - he is kind, thorough, efficient, helpful and sympathetic. I wish all of my doctors were as attentive. His practice runs smoothly, his staff is consistently courteous and pleasant and I highly recommend him.
