    How was your appointment with Dr. Hanson?

    Oct 06, 2022
    Dr. Hanson is the best of the best. He replaced my left hip and will be doing the right hip in the near future. He is very busy and sometimes the wait times are long. He is a very kind caring physician. The surgery was letter perfect. I am grateful to have my mobility back.
