WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Dr. Hanson''s team from the doctor to the office personnel and everyone in between was excellent. We assign that value without hesitation. The entire office organization was a symphony of careful planning and organization. Dr. Hanson and his staff had obviously planned top to bottom in order to provide the best care possible in order to assure a flawless experience for the patient. Our every call or email was answered with patience and precision. I would even rate the experience as the best I''ve ever encountered.
