EHR Notes include things MD said that I do not recall being said. Memory is fallible but I'm pretty alert. I would try to correct but doing that...might take months. ;-) Interested to read additional info there would've asked more questions had info come up in person.

Dr. Hansen is the best. I've only seen 60 doctors in my last 20 years and Dr. Hansen hands-down is the absolute best. He's professional yet humble he is kind but not Condescending. Hes wicked smart but not arrogant. Is everything a doctor should be

Jan 26, 2021
there was an error in the orthotic prescription I received (fortunately I caught that). This is the second time Ive experienced an error in the doctors printed orders (the other a month earlier) where MD told me one thing but it got printed out something else. I've learned to always double check and fortunately this wasn't serious but it makes me wonder if all patients do that.
Jan 21, 2021
dr.Hansen discussed my options and gave me his suggestions. He answered all my questions.

I was extremely pleased with Dr; he listened and explained
Oct 01, 2020
He was very professional but extremely personable. He listened to my pain issues and explained my need for surgeries to replace knees. But he advised not good idea until after an impending kidney removal surgery. in meantime he administered pain meds in my knees. First night of pain free sleep in a year!
Sep 30, 2020
Dr. Hansen is absolutely fantastic. I tell anyone who needs a orthopedic physician for a leg or hip problem that he is the best.
Sep 24, 2020
Dr. Hansen was wonderful. We discussed what might happen if the results of the test were positive for infection in my knee and he answered all my questions. He even said he would talk to my sister if she had questions. She is a retired nurse and always asks me questions I forgot to ask. (I'm pretty sure I filled out paperwork giving permission for her to be included if she wants.)
Sep 21, 2020
I have already recommended Dr. Hansen and UCSF to at least 14 people when discussing hip replacement and/or MS care as my son has been a patient due to his MS since 2010.

Dr. Hansen understands my medical problem (severe osteoartiritis in the left hip) as well as my desire to do whatever I can do to maintain currently a healthy and active lifestyle. He listens carefully is thoughtful and candid and he makes practical and positive recommendations. I truly feel Dr. Hansen is helping me achieve what I want to achieve and is prepare to say otherwise if he thinks it wouldn't be in my best interest.
