    Dr Hansen was on his phone for the majority of the appointment, seeming to be bothered by the interruptions of the practicing/trainee doctor. The practicing Dr did very well though, regardless of Hansen's irritable demeanor.

    The Dr that I saw before the other's came in was in my opinion highly educated about all aspects of what to expect and when, very professional.
