WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT DR. HANSON
“Dr. Hanson is amazing. He is so patient and kind. I would recommend him to anyone who is going through infertility. He even took extra time to call us back after our ultrasound to discuss next steps and see if we had any more questions. He was also going to personally call my MFM to make sure they have all the details and that my transfer of care is seamless. What more can you ask for? In a world where you can sometimes feel like a number Dr. Hanson makes you feel like a patient and a very important one at that. Thank you, Dr. Hanson!”
“Dr. Hanson is exceptional. I’ve had 4 procedures with him so far, he’s done an outstanding job every single time. He continues to impress me with his deep expertise, finesse and professionalism. Dr. Hanson is passionate about what he does, which is reflected in his exemplary work ethic. My journey has been rather challenging from the start, with several obstacles along the way. Dr. Hanson has been there every step of the way providing outstanding care, support, and guidance. He has found the perfect balance between being practical and direct with his guidance and recommendations while always taking the time to listen to my concerns/needs and adjusting our course accordingly. Of the 4 procedures Dr. Hanson has performed, 3 were egg retrievals. I am extremely grateful that Dr. Hanson puts in the effort to aspirate all follicles, including the small ones. In my last cycle, he was able to retrieve an unusually high number of mature eggs even though many of the follicles were very small, and by doing so, he gave me the best possible chance of success with this cycle. I consider myself lucky to have established care with Dr. Hanson. Thank you CCRM for hiring such a talented doctor!”
“Dr. Hanson is so compassionate and kind and even took the time to call us at the end of the day to follow-up. We had a tough decision on transfer day and made the best decision we could in the moment with his guidance. I would recommend Dr. Hanson to anyone in need of fertility help. I’m so thankful for his patience and ability to explain everything in a calm and thorough manner.”
“We switched to Dr. Hanson at the beginning of the year. We were so happy with how he listened to what we had to say. We were so lucky to get 2 embryos with him. We had a successful transfer with him in 2022 and can’t thank him enough.”
“Started working with Dr Hanson over a year ago for fertility treatments. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to about what we were going through. He was patient and understanding in all questions and concerns we may have had. We had a successful embryo transfer in less than a year of treatments and procedures, expecting baby number one in February! Highly recommend CCRM clinics and Dr. Hanson.”
