Verified Patient Reviews
This was one of the most pleasant experiences I've had a doctor's office. She has an excellent bedside manner.
She is terrific
It was great! She communicated effectively and I appreciated the care. Only thing she could improve on is the wait times. There was no one at the desk when I went, so that could be the issue.
Dr. Hansen was wonderful - very attentive, calming, empathetic, and professional. She listened to me ramble on about my various concerns and took them seriously, giving me great recommendations of things to try and setting up a plan for follow up and referrals if needed. Could not have asked for a better experience for my first doctor's visit in DC, and will gladly keep her as my primary care physician.
Dr. Hansen is very thorough and takes the time to ask you questions about your family history. She actually cares about her patients and wants them to live the healthiest lives possible. I feel very comfortable with Dr Hansen and would recommend her to anyone looking for a thorough and knowledgable physician.
Exceptional physician and primary care provider.
Heard good things from a friend of mine and I wasn't disappointed. Dr. Hansen is everything a doctor should be: a good listener, attentive, and a great demeanor. So glad I found her!
Dr. Hansen is by far the most patient, informative, concerned, compassionate, and knowledgeable doctor I've seen (and is my Primary Care physician). She balances a full schedule with devoting time to answer patients' questions in detail, and consistently shows a genuine concern for each one's well-being. She has also provided me with excellent referrals. I am also find of her front office team -- they are extremely helpful, efficient, welcoming, and friendly, and make every visit actually enjoyable!
Dr. Hansen is great! Her front office team sucks - they were flossing while they spoke to me, never made eye contact with me, and basically ignored me when I asked them for my prescription. They were so unprofessional and made me feel uncomfortable while I waited. Zero customer service, respect, or professionalism. Such a shame because Dr. Hansen was great!
I really like her a lot she took her time to find out about my medical history and was really attentive to my care
I went for my annual physical and Dr. Hansen was very helpful in making overall suggestions and improvements to my health.
I had a fantastic experience. Thank you!
Dr. Hansen truly cares about her patients and wants to get to know them. The front desk staff has also gotten a lot more pleasant, which shows that she listened to the complaints about them. Dr. Hansen listens to your health concerns and explains everything. I've been going to her for years. Amy, the NP, is also great! High recommend this doctor!
Extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and a genuinely kind person.
She was amazing super nice and sweet can't wait to go back.
Dr. Hansen listened to all my medical concerns and was very patient. I had to wait a bit past my appointment time, but it was worth the quality and professionalism.
Dr Hansen is very likeable and warm-hearted. She took a lot of notes and spent time asking questions at the end of a long day. An excellent doctor and credit to the medical community.
A very kind Dr., I was able to talk to her like a friend.
Best primary care physician I have seen in DC!
I felt very uncomfortable with this practice from the moment i entered the waiting room. The staff was not very friendly and was complaining about other patients behind the counter. There are signs (with exclamation points) and an information sheet explaining that there will be additional fees for all kinds of things, such as medication refills and prior authorizations. I wish that the description of the practice's financial approach would have been clearly explained in the description so I understood before booking an appointment. Although I understand that doctors are in a for-profit practice, the way they approach this just makes it feel like the patient is a burden and that they do not have the patient's best interest as a priority. All that being said, Dr. Hansen did not rush the appointment itself. Overall, however, i felt so uncomfortable with the visit that I do not think I would return.
Dr. Hansen was attentive and thorough. She took time to go over my many issues and discussed the game plan for each. I will be taking my husband to see her and would highly recommend her. The receptionist and phlebotomist were cheerful and easy to talk to as well. Wonderful visit. After trying very hard to find a primary care doctor in Washington, DC, I finally struck gold!!!
The ladies at the front desk ignored me when I went to sign in and never checked me in even after I prompted them to take my copay. This was particularly irritating because there we only 2 of us in the waiting room. This was what caused the delay in being seen.
Excellent visit. Very thorough care. Dr.Hansen kept me informed about everything and spent a lot of time actually in the room with me getting to know my health history and understand my illness. I'd gotten used to huge wait times and hurried consultations with other offices, but this was the absolute opposite. Dr.Hansen will be my primary care provider from now on.
I went for my yearly check-up and she was great and super friendly. Additionally, she was very thorough with getting an accurate picture of my medical history. It was my first time going to her, and I certainly think I will be going back.
Dr. Hansen was very experienced, knowledgeable, and down to earth. She made me feel comfortable and well informed during my visit.
I hate going to the doctor, however I did not feel nearly as uncomfortable with Dr. Hansen as I usually do. Definitely recommend her and will make her my new primary care physician.
I really can't say enough good things about this doctor's office. Everyone was so kind, efficient, and really made it clear that I am a valued patient. I definitely going my new doctor.
Dr. Hansen is warm, thorough, unhurried and understanding. In my experience, a rare find for GPs today. Feel very fortunate to be her patient.
Doctor asked lots of history questions and made me feel comfortable. She could have been a little better about soliciting questions/concerns from me.
Honesty Dr.Hansen spent more time with me than any other physician I've ever seen. She was so caring and thoughtful during our session. I am new to DC and she went above and beyond for providing me options for future visits. I highly recommend Dr.Hansen without reservation. AMAZING physician and person.
Dr. Hansen is great - personable and thorough. I've also seen a nurse practitioner in the office who was excellent, and the technician who draws blood is warm, kind, and professional. There are some small communication issues with the front desk staff. For instance, they unexpectedly had me fill out all of the new patient forms again as an "update" even though I was a returning patient with no changes to my information - then told me I could only have 1/2 hour for my physical because I had not arrived early enough to fill out the paperwork before the appt. Also, the instructions from Dr. Hansen on ZocDoc say if you're getting bloodwork to fast for 6-7 hours before your appointment. When I arrived 6-1/2 hrs after my last food, the front desk staff told me that was unacceptable and they could only draw blood if I had fasted overnight for at least 8 hours so I would have to come back at another time.
Great appointment with Dr. Hansen. She spent a lot of time with me and went over all of my concerns and even helped explain how I can save money on my prescriptions. She clearly cares about her patients, I highly recommend her!
Takes a long time to receive test data if ever
Dr. Hansen is amazing. She is always so attentive and makes you feel like you are heard. Absolutely every time I've seen her has been a better experience than any other doctor I've ever seen. The Nurse Practioner in her office is also very good.
Great doctor! You can tell she cares. It makes me feel comfortable as a patient.
Dr. Hansen actually takes time to listen. She is thorough, and I actually feel like patient rather than an insurance number. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Hansen is simply awesome! Extremely thorough, attentive, and friendly. Definitely recommend her!
Dr Hansen is hands down the best doctor! She cares and is always willing to squeeze you in. I'm so lucky to havr her as my primary care physician. THANK YOU!
Dr. Hansen is a great doctor. She's patient, attentive and knowledgeable. I have never had a bad experience at her office and I've been her patient for approx 5 years now.
It was excellent!
The wait time is always long and always worth it. Dr. Hansen takes her time with each patient, asks good questions, listens to opinions, and recommends multiple options while providing the risks and benefits of each. She is familiar with the most recently approved treatments and research and will cite recent changes in appointments. Additionally, her staff are great and friendly. Very much enjoy every appointment I've had.
Wow. What a humane, easy to talk to, knowledgeable professional. Dr. Hansen hit the sweet spot between offering advice and information and listening. She inspired confidence through her totally personal style. I am very, very impressed.
She is absolutely fantastic. She is dedicated to helping patients understand their options for treatment.
Dr. Hansen was great! She made me feel comfortable and I liked that she asked comprehensive questions. I felt like she was really trying to understand my health and history. Additionally, she listened to all of my concerns and did not make me feel rushed during the appointment. The wait time was also minimal. I highly recommend Dr. Hansen!
Dr. Hansen was great! She listens and asks pertinent questions and tries to figure out what you might have instead of just making a general assumption without enough info. Will definitely start going to her from now on as my primary care doctor!
Dr. Hansen is one of the few doctors I have seen that actually seemed to be listening when I saw her. She was straightforward, answered all of my questions, didn't treat me like a child, and absolutely seemed to care about my health issues. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
She was great!! Nice, thorough, and knowledgeable... Will definitely use her as my primary!
Very efficient and thorough. Open on Saturday-- super convenient. In-office blood work. Timely. Excellent all-around.
I waited longer for my general visit than my first time visit. My first visit i was seen within 15 minutes. I waited a little over 30 minutes to be seen for my second appointment and was a little surprised given my previous experience. She has a very good bedside manner however and talks you through her reasoning for doing things vs. saying this is what we are going to do. I do not like the make an appointment before a RX can be perscribed...I will determine whether or not that is truly problematic as I do not take multiple medications but I would hate to have to pay a co-pay to get a prescription for a zpack if I have been sick for a week...
I went into Darcy Hansen to get my annual physical, she was very thorough, asked about my family history and mine. She checked my the typical items and listened to me on any issues I was having. She was genuine, asking me about myself where I'm from, what I do, etc. I thought overall it was a good experience and the wait was only long because it was the day after New Year's and she was nice enough to let off all the staff.
She takes a lot of time to talk to the patient.
Straight shooter and very positive. A great reliable doctor.
Dr. Hansen is fantastic. Very warm and professional. Her administrative staff is also personable, kind and competent.
Always very thorough and helpful!
Great doctor, very knowledgeable great bedside skills.
Dr. Hansen is an excellent physician. In particular, she demonstrates impressive medical judgment and knowledge along with remarkable listening skills, which she applies in a non-rushed manner. She is the best PMC I have encountered (and I have seen my share).
Dr. Hansen is wonderful. You can tell that she is very busy, but when she sits down with you she is there with you 100%. She takes her time to listen carefully, talks you through everything she is doing, and does way she thinks is best for you. Really great bedside manner and a fantastic doc.
Dr. Hansen is wonderful!
Was a great experience from start to finish. On a Saturday, nonetheless. Dr. Hansen is a very dedicated professional and spent a lot of time with me. This was the first time I had seen her. She asked a lot of questions and really cared about me and my health. She asked a lot of questions about family health issues and educated me on certain concerns that I had. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Hansen. I definitely found my new GP!
Great attention to detail and genuinely cares for her patients. Can have longer wait times, particularly later into the afternoon/evening.
Dr. Hansen went to great detail to explain the reasons behind the prescription she gave me and made me feel very calm and informed as a patient!
Dr. Hansen was attentive and nice and gave me clear explanations about my symptoms. I didn't have a good impression of her office, though. In addition, the laboratory employee had rude manners.
I would recommend Dr. Hansen to anyone who needs an experience doctor that pays attention to detail. She listened and addressed all my concerns. Very informative with wonderful bedside manners.
Dr Hansen saw me right away, listened patiently, asked questions, and gave excellent advice. I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Hansen is a great doctor, and I have never had a problem with a visit to her office. She takes a lot of time with her patients, asking lots of questions to get a better understanding of your health and situation. She is not going to see you for two minutes and then send you on your way! This particular time I was actually running a few minutes late, and both she and her front desk staff were very kind and understanding, which I really appreciated.
Dr. Hansen was very enthusiastic and encouraging, even though I think I was almost the last person that she saw on that day and there was an > 1h delay.
Dr Hansen spends a lot of time with you, not only to listen to your concerns, but also to ask questions and make suggestions. She shows genuine care, which is so rare nowadays. I cannot thank her enough for being such a loving doctor. She is the best!
Very knowledgable and helpful and even open Saturdays!
She was wonderful. I'm tempted to give her a bad review just to keep her appointment books open for me!
She's so great. Very thorough and easy to talk to.
Did STD testing that i was told was customary but turned out to not be covered by insurance.
Best doctor in town by far
Dr. Hansen was fantastic. Very professional, great bedside manner, and listened and was responsive to everything I had to say. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
She is great. She is efficient, knowledgable, and has superb office personnel who handle paperwork smoothly.
A physician with expertise and common sense!
You may have to wait a little while before seeing her, BUT its worth the wait. She is so patient and very understanding. I can always go to her for reassurance on any health matter. I love my doc!
Dr. Hansen listened to my symptoms and explained in great detail the different things that could relate to my symptoms. She asked me important questions and did a thorough exam. She really knows her stuff and she did a very thorough job. Highly recommend her.
Wait was long but it seemed to be an usual situation, and Dr. Hansen was very apologetic. Will definitely be returning as a regular patient.
Dr. Hansen is outstanding. She takes time, listens, looks you in the eye and addresses all concerns with caring and respect. She is never judgmental, arrogant or dismissive, characteristics I find all too often in doctors. Her staff were delightful as well.
2014 - Dr. Hansen was friendly, easy to talk to, she was willing to listen, and she was respectful. When she spoke, she mentioned the source of her information, she did a great job explaining her rationale for her diagnosis/decisions/suggestions/prescriptions, and her knowledge seemed based both her foundational studies as well as current research and recent findings in the medical practice.
She is fantastic. I am willing to see her despite her being out of network
I love seeing Dr. Hansen. She always take the time to ask how you're doing, check if things have changed and really listen to what you have to say. She is able to find a balance in explaining things where you neither feel like she's dumbing things down for you nor do you feel like she is talking in medical jargon. She is very personable and even though it's clear that she is extremely busy, I've never felt like she's in a hurry to get to the next appointment. Sometimes wait times are long, but for me it's worth it, as I know that when I go in to see her, I will have plenty of time to talk to her, let her know my concerns and get her feedback.
Dr. Hansen was very professional and courteous. She thoroughly answered an array of health questions. I plan to use her as my GP from now on. Highly Recommended!
She understood my situation.....
She was very good at listening, asking the right questions and providing useful information. I have already recommended her to several friends and will absolutely be going back myself.
She was very professional, kind and informative! I look forward to coming to her in the future.
It was my first visit and the front office staff was kind. However they made me fill out paperwork even though I did it on zocdoc which was a major bummer. The doctor seemed great and I'll know more after my follow up.
I went to see Dr. Hansen 3 weeks ago regarding consistent and persistent headaches. She instructed me to get an MRI, which I did the next day, and she told me she would receive the MRI results later that day. That was three weeks ago and I have not gotten my results. I have made 7 attempts to contact Dr. Hansen, via email, phone and voicemail - and all have gone unreturned. Radio silence. No one should have to wait over 3 weeks for test results that get turned around within 24 hours. Or how about a response from Dr. Hansen or her staff letting me know the results aren't ready? It's pretty simple to do that, if nothing more. Not a good doctor to depend on, highly unprofessional. I will be requesting my MRI scan to be sent to a different doctor. It looks like I am not the first to have this experience with Dr. Hansen.
She's great doctor .
Dr. Darcy Hansen was both attentive to and genuinely concerned about my health and me as a person. GO SEE HER!
Dr. Hansen is so thorough and so caring!
She was really thoughtful and listened and asked questions. I felt really comfortable with her.
I felt very comfortable talking to her and look forward to working with her as my primary care physician. The office staff was very nice and helpful to me as this was my initial consultation with Dr. Hansen.
Dr. Hansen sits down with you and you always have her full attention.
First visit and she really seems to know what she is doing.
Dr. Hansen is so nice and put me instantly at ease! I really appreciated how thorough she was.
Highly concerned about her patients
She's prompt, she's reliable, and she always gives you 100% of her attention. She doesn't rush through your appointment but she's thorough and so knowledgeable about all the latest and greatest in with different medicines out there. She's reviewed it all and will give you her opinion about what would work best, why, and possible side effects.
Having just relocated to DC, I needed a doctor. After reading her ZOC DOC reviews, I decided to try Dr. Hansen. I was not disappointed. Dr. Hansen was professional, courteous, and asked great questions. She provided research-based responses to my questions, and was empathetic and personable. She provided follow up via email within hours of my visit. I was so impressed and I feel as though I'm in very good hands.
Office: Accessible, easy to schedule, friendly staff. Dr Hansen is friendly, attentive, thorough and approachable. I have a great primary care physician who I have been with for 20+ years; however if she were unavailable (as was the case) I would return to Dr Hansen without hesitation.
As always, she is thoroughly professional. She doesn't whisk you in and out, but takes the time to listen to your health issues and concerns. And when neededed, she has always referred me to other top-notch specialists. Her staff, though always very busy, are always courteous and friendly. I would recommend her to others seeeking a new doctor.
I like Dr. Hansen. The waiting period is sometimes long but when you see her she is attentive and very thorough. I always feel taken care of and she follows up unlike most doctors I have been to in the past. So to me the wait is worth it.
Dr. Hansen is wonderful. She was very kind and understanding even though I was late, and she sat down with me in a normal room first to talk to me about why I was there. She explained things very clearly, and was very accessible if I had any questions in the future. Highly recommended!
In general I love Dr. Hansen. This particular visit she was running an hour late due to a complication with an earlier patient.
Darcy is the best internist, everyone should go to her.
She never rushes you and gives you undivided attention. Worth the wait!
Dr. Hansen is one of the best doctor's I have encountered- including my own doctors as well as my parents doctors. She LISTENS and is very communicative. She also knows what she is doing. She is an excellent doctor and I would highly recommend her.
It's been a month and I still haven't received the results from my blood work.
Dr Hansen is a fantastic doctor. She takes her time with you, listens, and is accurate with her diagnosis and treatments. The only challenge is getting through her office to reach her. Once you're with her she's the best.
She had great bedside manner, took time to go through all of my concerns and had good recommendations. I went for a routine physical and would go back for other concerns.
Dr. Hansen is great. Appointments are honored on time and she will answer any health questions or concerns you may have in detail (never rushed). She was knowledgable of a very rare and complicated condition and coordinated treatment with specialists. I couldn't have been more pleased.
Unbelievable service...kind and helpful staff all around...from reception to consultation. Dr. Hansen has a wonderful bedside manner, is attentive to your questions, and amazingly helpful in finding a solution. She knew exactly what I needed and didn't waste any time writing me prescriptions to get me back on track. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Excellent service. Thanks
Dr Hansen is always kind and through.
I was able to get an appointment that same day, and it made waiting much easier by providing all of the necessary forms before I went into the office! I was able to be seen by Dr. Hansen right away, on my first visit as a new patient! Once I arrived, Dr. Hansen was very professional, she listened to my symptoms and made great recommendations. She was concerned with my overall well being and how I can improve my health.
As always she was attentive and promptly took care of my concerns.
Are Really glad to have found Dr Hansen
Dr. Hansen was great to visit with. She made me feel at ease and comfortable during my first OB appointment.
Dr. Hansen was wonderfully attentive, caring and thorough. Highly recommend to anyone seeking a doctor who actually treats their patient like a human being rather than a subject.
Perhaps an odd thing to say, but this was the best physical I've ever had. Dr Hansen was very attentive, sat down and talked with me about my health history, and gave really thoughtful, considered responses to all of my concerns. Leaving the office after getting my lab work done, another patient asked me if I had been coming to Dr. Hansen regularly, and we concurred that Dr. Hansen is a really excellent, personable doctor.
Very informative, friendly, helpful, and honest.
Great--very thorough! Much better experience than I've had with other DC docs in the past.
Very friendly and professional
She's amazingly thoughtful, caring, and non-judgmental. She's extremely knowledgeable with decades of experience. I would highly recommend.
Very friendly and professional.
Dr. Hansen was great! I feel lucky I got an appointment and will definitely be back.
She was very nice and answered all my questions. She was very patient and didn't rush through anything. The whole experience was very comfortable and enjoyable.
Dr.Hanson is veryfriendly and willing to assist. Her staff workers are efficient, always willing to bend over backwards to help the patients. The office is small but always clean and comfortable.
Dr. Hansen is very professional and knowledgeable. She provided me with several referrals, trying to ensure she was recommending one who took my insurance. I would definitely recommend her to others looking for a primary care physician.
Very thorough. She cares a lot and really knows what she is doing.
I had a great experience at Dr. Hansen's office, I will definately be returning for annual physicals.
Dr. Hansen was very thorough -- I didn't have to fill out any medical history forms, because she came into the room and asked me all about it. She took notes and really thought through my problems. I would highly recommend her, and I plan on going back for any other issues that I have in the future.
I found Dr. Hansen to be extremely caring and knowledgeable. She explained the medications she was prescribing in great detail and gave me some great suggestions to manage my symptoms. The only problem was the wait time. I was the last appointment of the day and I guess there was some sort of emergency earlier in the day, so things were backed up. She apologized and it may have been a one-time thing.
Dr. Hansen is great. Went in for a routine check-up and was very attentive to my questions. I felt like she really wanted to get to know me unlike many others.
I needed a pre-op physical and I do not have a primary care physician. The reviews for Dr. Hansen were positive and since it was only a physical, I booked an appointment. Overall, it was a positive experience. I found the Dr. Hansen to be very thorough and she was familiar with the doctors I see regularly. Based on this visit, I am going to try her as my primary care physician for my yearly physicals.
Dr. Hansen is by far the best doctor I've ever had, thorough, thoughtful and caring. I always leave feeling confident that I will get better. She has referred me to a network of wonderful specialists when needed.
Dr. Hansen was really great - I felt like she listened to my problems, did not rush her exam (or take too long), and explained her diagnosis in a way that helped me understand. Sometimes when I go to doctors, I feel like they do not care about my symptoms or are not taking me seriously. Not so with Dr. Hansen - as a new patient, I was impressed with how I was treated at my first visit. I will definitely make her my main doctor!
Dr. Hansen is a great doctor. She always sits down and talks to you, finds out what's going on, etc before doing her exam, which I appreciate. Yes, she was running a little late today, but it looks like she gave up her lunch break for my appointment, so I can't complain!
Dr Darcy was very knowledgeable, she explained everything in detail and made sure that i understood. I would recommend her to everyone. Keep up the great work Dr.
Could not have asked for better doctor's visit.
Dr. Hansen was warm, friendly, and asked lots of questions even though I only needed a routine checkup. This was my first visit and I look forward to working with her.
I've had many many doctors and none are as good as her!! Even the specialists I saw we're impressed by what she caught and her accuracy in diagnosing.
She's the best.
It was only my first appointment with Dr. Hansen, but think I was extremely lucky to have stumbled upon her name online. Thorough, great bedside manner, focused on my full healh history since it was my first time, and didn't feel rushed. Hopefully will continue to go great.
Wonderful. Just a long wait time. But I could tell why. She gives great personalized attention. She comes across honest an attentive. Overall good experience.
Dr. Hansen is a great doctor. She takes the necessary time to talk about issues of her patients. I recommend her to anyone in search of quality health care.
Great like always! Dr. Hansen is the best
Dr. Hansen is a kind and knowledgeable doctor.
Dr. Hansen is the kind of physician every patient wants. She is attentive, knowledgeable, and engaged. She listens and then helps the patient make the best decision. I recommend her highly.
I am sure will be as good as this one!!!!! Great Doctor!!!
She's a great doctor.
Great doctor-- very caring and professional!
I HAVE BEEN GOING TO DR. HANSON FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR NOW AND I LOVE HER PROFESSIONALISM. SHE IS VERY DETAILED OF WHAT SHE IS LOOKING FOR AND WHY WE NEEDED TO DO CERTAIN TEST. WHEN SHE SAYS SHE WILL GET BACK WITH SHE REALLY DOES. NOT TO MENTION THE OPTION OF SKYPE WITH HER. THAT'S A FIRST FOR ME. SHE REALLY TAKES THE TIME TO LISTEN TO WHAT ELMENTS YOU ARE HAVING AND TRIES TO RESOLVE THEM RIGHT THERE.
I went to Dr. Hanson's office after she was recommended to me by a co-worker. I would hands down, without a doubt recommend Dr. Hanson to anyone looking for a primary care physician. She did a very through job and I can honestly say that this was one of my most comprehensive, un-rushed annual check-ups.
She listens well and is quite knowledgable. Highly recommended.
I made the appointment through ZocDoc and did not realize it was after business hours; this meant that Dr. Hansen was the only person in the office, no receptionist, no assistants, so the wait was long, and I felt a bit rushed. I will also have to go back during business hours for bloodwork. Aside from the wait, the visit was fine.
They really need to work on customer service. While I understand that doctor's offices often run behind, to walk in to an empty office and sit in the waiting room for 20 mins before seeing anyone and then another 20 waiting for the doctor seemed poor. Additionally, it took me 6-7 weeks and three phone calls to get the results of my tests. The results were emailed with no personal attention or explanation. When I saw something that concerned me, I called and emailed back to talk to the doctor and was never responded to. Long and short, I'll never return.
Awesome as always!!!!
Outstanding! She was so kind, listened so well and I felt so confident in her assessment. I'd tell my best friend to go to see her.
She is very involved with her patients and very easy to talk to. She listens to what YOU think and makes you feel comfortable.
Dr. Darcy Hansen is the doctor I have been searching for in DC for four years she is excellent.
It is hard for me to leave work early, so it was really great that Dr. Hansen could see me after normal business hours. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and on top of that, she took the time to get to know me since I was a new patient. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Hansen!
Dr. Hansen is the best! Great bedside manner, and always finds time to chat about whatever issues I'm having, to help find solutions. Highly recommended.
I value Dr. Hansen's opinion, she's a brilliant doctor.
Dr. Hansen is very thorough and clear in her explanations. She offers treatment options and takes the patient's views into account when making recommendations. I have seen her only twice and I am very favorably impressed.
The visit was excellent; no wait time and Dr Hansen is very knowledgeable and concern with your situation.
Dr. Hansen was very nice and personable but I felt that she was not very thorough . For example, on her intake form there is not question of medications. How are you to give a thorough analysis of a patient without knowing what medications they are currently taking?
Always a pleasure to see Dr. Hansen. She is patient, knowledgeable and always professional. I keep coming back to her and I highly recommend her.
For a person who actually doesn't like going to the doctor's office or hospitals in general, such as muself, Dr. Hansen always makes it a relaxed and comfortable visit!
One of the most pleasant and reassuring doctor experiences I've ever had.
Doctor Hansen takes the time to sit with you and get to know you as a person, not just your diagnosis or treatment for that day. She doesn't rush and takes the time to explain test results.
Thorough, nice, and I liked her approach.
An excellent experience. Dr. Hansen explained everything very clearly, provided references and answered all questions.
She's a great, attentive and knowledgeable doctor.
She was greattttt...and very friendly and easy going. Had no wait time!
She is excellent!
Dr. Hansen is quick, polite, casual, and professional all at the same time. Even when I've only dealt with younger residents there, they had some of the best bedside manner I'd ever come across in a doctor.
Fantastic. Dr. Hansen is always accommodating and helpful. She is simply fantastic.
I appreciate that I met with her rather than with ONLY support staff. As soon as I walked in, she referred to me by name and was very pleasant and inviting.
My visit with Dr. Darcy Hansen went great. It was my first appointment with her, and she spoke with me for about 15 minutes at the start just about my life, why I was seeing a doctor, etc. I appreciate that she took sometime to get to know me a bit, even though I saw her at the end of the day on a Friday. I've had other doctors just stare down at their notes and write the whole time without looking up and really listening to what I was saying. I'm leaving the country for an extended period, so having her listen to me and explain things that I should take into consideration before going (what vaccinations to get, what specialists to see before I go, etc.)was very helpful. I would highly recommend her.
Excellent! Dr. Hansen is amazing, she takes the time to listen and eases your worries. She is very professional and knowledgeable.
I feel that Dr Hansen takes the time to listen to what I have to say and consider the whole. I haven't always felt that in the past with other doctors, and I think it's important.
I appreciate Dr. Hansen and feel she is invested in my well being.
A very good doctor!!!!
It was quick, but I will return.
I've been seeing Dr Hansen since I arrived in DC in 2010 and she's wonderful. She always takes time with me, listens to all concerns and is caring and thorough.
Dr. Hansen is a wonderful doctor I have been going to her since she was at Yater Clinic. Very professional and caring.
friendly and helpful
Dr. Hansen is an extremely professional and knowledgeable doctor. She gave me several options on how to proceed with my treatment in a timely manner. Likewise, her office demeanor was very reassuring and made me feel comfortable.
Always useful information and positive experience.
Dr. Hansen was exceptional. Unusually thoughtful and perceptive. Seemed especially interested in me as a person and as a patient. Very thorough exam with follow-up recommendations. This was my initial visit but I am certain that she will be my physician as long as I am in DC.
Dr. Hansen is great, nothing but good things to say about her and her office.
Dr. Hansen was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Wonderful doctor. Took the time to answer all questions. Great experience.
Wonderful physician who listens well
Dr. Hansen is so knowledgable and really works hard to find the right solution to my problems. She is genuinely interested in how I'm doing—physically and personally! It's really great to have a doctor who will sit down at a desk with you, and do all the exam work herself!
great that she gives the how and why... makes us better patients
I've been seeing Dr. Hansen for almost 2 years. My first appointment with her was the most thorough and reassuring visit I have ever had with any doctor. She talked to me in her office for awhile in order to get my full health background, not just mine but also my family. She is easy to book appointments with and my wait time has never been too long, either to get an appointment or while sitting in the office. If you are seeing her for the first time, I recommend scheduling the appointment on a day when you are not in a rush to get to work or to run other errands. You want to get the most out of your initial appointment to set up anything you may need in the future. She takes the time to really listen to what you say and address any concerns. You will leave feeling like your doctor treated YOU, not just a another patient.
Dr. Hansen saw me almost immediately on Saturday morning despite the fact that I showed up five minutes late. She was kind, professional, and efficient. Highly recommended!
Thorough. Spent adequate time explaining. Seemed knowledgeable.
Dr. Hansen is a very professional, straight-forward, and caring practitioner. I felt comfortable with her medical expertise and we quickly developed a rapport. If you're looking for a gen prac or PCP I highly recommend her.
The wait was long, but I really liked Dr. Hansen - she was professional and knowledgeable. I really don't fault her the wait time, as it seemed like there were extenuating circumstances - make your appointment before 5, that might help!
Absolutely wonderful doctor. I felt immediately comfortable with her. She took a complete history, addressed my concerns and was very quick with the exam. She clearly cares about her patients.
Obviously knows her stuff! I was the last appointment of the day but didn't feel like she was rushing me, which I appreciate. Glad to have found a great doctor in DC.
She was very patient and took a lot of time with me . She made me feel very comfortable. Approached all of matters an gave me solutions. Definetly a new expierence from my previous doctor. I highly recommend her!!!! Awesome Doc!
dr. hansen was wonderful...felt very relaxed with her, great bedside manner , very detailed. both thumbs up
Dr. Hansen is the kind of doctor is thoughtful, thourough, never rushed, interested in what her patients think and feel, looks you straight in the eye and addresses all of your concerns. She makes you feel like her only patient and I'd recommend her without hesitation.
She's the best!
I waited for too long and then my lab work was not ready for proper review. Ultimately, I paid for a 5 minute review that did not require an in-office visit. My visit was also after the time when the office staff leaves. Dr. Hansen tried valiantly to do it all herself, but it was not great to watch. It felt chaotic and disorganized. Not a great sign when the doctor walks in and says, "So remind me what the issue was?" If the staff can't be around, I wouldn't take appointments.
Dr. Hansen has a great "bedside manner." She listened, was responsive to my concerns, and spent as much time with me as I needed. She's great and I'll definitely be going to her for my primary care.
Dr. Darcy is professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I felt I was well taken care of and will be returning for future medical needs.
I will never see Doctor Hansen again. When I showed up for my appointment I had to wait outside her locked door for 20 minutes before she arrived...I had been about to leave! While the doctor was overall not unfriendly, her tone was somewhat condescending. Then, when I called to make my next appointment, her receptionist was downright rude and insulting, treating my requests for more information with a sarcastic, "really?" The answers to my questions were snappishly conveyed, without any explanation as to why a service that I had received in the past would no longer be available. Overall, it was one of the most disheartening impressions I have ever received of a physician- unsympathetic to a sick patient
Very thorough and professional
It was apparent I was dealing with a specialist. She is clearly highly experienced in her area of expertise. I had a very comfortable and informative, and reassuring experience and what's more she was open on Saturday morning at 8:30. The office itself may leave a bit to be desired but this is one of those old school, as they say, doctors who is most concerned about the patient and the cure. I suppose she leave the office to others. Not bad at all for a first time and with very short notice. I would recommend for the specialty for sure.
Love her, always a pleasure and very professional and knowledgeable.
Dr. Hansen was non-judgemental, which is extremely important to me. She provided a lot of advice, and I really appreciated her as a person, overall.
she is so nice, caring, highly professional.
Dr. Hansen was ready to see me as soon as I arrived. She took me to her office to discuss my concerns before anything else. She was approachable and personable and I definitely plan to go back any time I am in need of a doctor!
Great visit. I'll be coming back. Need to communicate that lab work is not available after a certain time for late appointments. If ZocDoc can't include it, perhaps via an appointment follow up for anything that books after that time.
I needed an appointment on short notice while travelling and I was lucky to find someone as great as her.
Dr. Hansen is WONDERFUL. She is very friendly and takes time to find out what the problem is. She is great at explaining things and always makes sure you understand, agree, and feel comfortable with her diagnosis. I've seen her twice and she is now my general practitioner.
I plan to use dr Hansen as my primary care physician
Darcy is always amazing!
Very good Doctor, very good visit!
She greeted me personally when I walked in, there was no wait time, and she spent a lot of time me--it was not rushed. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Darcy Hansen is very nice and professional . She is very caring about her patients . I highly recommend her.
This was my first visit with Dr. Hansen, and I'd recommend her to anyone. She took my history herself, in her office before the exam, and asked thorough questions. She's incredibly personable, and during the exam she continued chatting, so that I felt totally at ease. She's highly professional and thorough, but still makes the visit unintimidating and easy. I'll be going back to her regularly, and I'm not one to typically go to any doctor regularly.
Dr. Hansen is very attentive. I felt extremely comfortable to ask any questions and she answered them thoroughly and kindly. I felt like I was in good hands.
I saw Dr. Hansen yesterday about an ongoing condition I've been suffering from. Every other doctor I've seen gets stumped and tells me they just don't know what's wrong and leaves it at that. Dr. Hansen actually took the time to fully understand my symptoms and proved she was dedicated to finding answers, gave me many options for treatment, and made sure I was not suffering from pain in the meantime. I will definitely be going to her from now on, so happy that I found a doctor that actually cares!
Dr. Hansen was friendly and professional. She made me feel very comfortable and took the time to refer to me specialists that she knew would give me great service as well.
Very thorough and thoughtful doctor. So glad to have found a good PCP.
The doctor was great! She gave me all the attention and time I needed, she explained everything and was very friendly. I am happy I found her and highly recommend her.
Dr. Hansen was very helpful in answering questions and providing me with a thorough and informative physical. She had excellent referrals for other doctors, including a dermatologist. As someone who has only lived in D.C. for approximately 6 months, these recommendations were truly helpful. I will absolutely continue to see Dr. Hansen and will not dread going to appointments as is oftentimes true of women's physicals!
Dr. Hansen was extremely personable, quick, and efficient.
My concerns were listened to and addressed in a very professional and personable manner. I found the receptionist to be personable and efficient.
Overall good experience. The actual appointment seemed a little rushed.
I was early for my appointment. as I am a new patient, and expected to wait until the actual allotted time to be seen. Dr. Hansen finished with another patient and was able to see me right away before the appointed time. She did a thorough interview of my medical and family history, more than just the typical check list I am used to seeing. We spoke about medical options and innovations that could be considered for my future care. I would recommend Dr. Hansen as she is a professional that knows her craft and is able to speak in layman’s terms. She is willing to consider all options before recommending a path.
Dr. Hansen is wonderful. She was fast, professional, and made me feel really comfortable on on a fairly personal matter. I will definitely be coming back to her. Found my new PCP!
Dr. Hansen is awesome! She has Saturday appointments which are great for busy professionals. She also made me feel extremely comfortable throughout my appointment. I highly recommend her!
First visit was great, she took the time to sit down and talk with me about why I was there and asked about my medical and family history as though we were having a conversation, not by reading it off a 300 question survey. It's comforting to have a doctor with whom you can discuss your problems and possible treatments instead of having it dictated to you off a prescription pad.
I've seen Dr. Hansen a few times, and while she's thorough and knowledgeable, I always sort of get the feeling that she thinks I'm being overly dramatic. Also, after she posted my lab results, it was over a week before she also sent a message explaining what the results meant.
Darcy Hansen was very personable and professional. I've recommended her to my partner.
I was so impressed with Dr. Hansen & her office staff that I'll never see another Internist. She took the necessary time to find out why I was there and explained things to me in a way I could understand. She did everything herself; never sending in a nurse or assistant. Amazing!
I had a long wait, but she apologized and more than made up for it by being amaaaazing.
Dr. Hansen was very professional, caring and a pleasure to see. I would highly recomend her. It's taken me 4 years to find a Primary Care Doctor that I like and here she is.
Dr. Hansen is always a joy. She asks about your well being, and is very helpful and attentive. She is my favorite doctor!
I am so grateful for finding Dr. Hansen. Her office is convenient, staff polite and knoweldgeable, and she listens!! She is professional, prompt, and flexible (I mean that she offers more than one solutionto an ailment and discusses the pros/cons so patients can make an informed decision).
Dr. Hansen was very thorough with my exam and extremely informative in her explanations and suggestions when discussing the test results with me. She is likable and easy to talk to and seems genuinely interested in me and my health even though it is obvious that she has a busy practice with lots of patients. I think my years' long search for a primary care doc is over!
Dr. Hansen was really wonderful. She is caring, concerned and very knowledgeable. My initial visit/medical history review was unhurried and she really wanted to know everything about me. She has a great, warm manner and a lot of great followup questions. I have since sent my mother-in-law to her (a true test!) and she gave her a rave review!
I saw Dr. Hansen twice. I went to her on recommendation from a coworker that she was very nice. I found her to be very kind and I love that she does both general checkup and a GYN annual exam - she is very gentle. I also loved that she sends your results to you online. The reason I would not go back to her though is because 1. her office is very disorganized, slow, not polite and not very helpful if you ever need your information faxed or something. 2. when i was worried about a result i got back she did not seem too concerned and even though i was worried she essentially dismissed my fears without properly explaining why. luckily the following year with a different doctor my results were ok.
The visit went very well -- admitted within 10 minutes of arriving, and the doctor was friendly and very helpful.
Dr Hansen and her staff were amazing! First time ever that a physician actually took my medical history instead of me just ticking off boxes on a sheet. I felt very comfortable with her and I was able to get everthing done at on one day because there is a radiology center right down the hall and a pharmacy in the building. Dr. Hansen was very thorough and professional and knowledgeable.
Dr. Hansen was wonderful and very helpful. She quickly addressed my needs and was kind, took her time and was a lifesaver my case. I wish I would have found her years ago when I moved to DC.
She is great!
Doctor Hansen is wonderful, though she is very busy and it is hard to get in to see her when you are sick.
Great Job. I really like Dr. Hansen.
The doctor is wonderful. Her staff, not so much. I NEVER get a live person on the phone when I call. I called while I was in the waiting room and got the voicemail while the receptionist was sitting there. She was not on the phone. It is very frustrating and I am considering changing doctors for that reason. This week, I was very ill and unable to get any response from the office at all. ZocDoc is how I was able to get in, but it wasn't until the next day. As I sat in the waiting room, one staffer told another not to worry about answering the phone; "They'll call back." Well, maybe not.
Great doctor who actually listens and cares!
I really liked Dr. Hansen, and she was very opening to hearing about what was wrong with me, and listened without making me feel patronized. She also followed up with me a week later with my test results.It was a welcome change from other doctors I've had.
Dr. Darcy Hansen is one of the finest and most caring medical professionals I have had the privilege of working with. I was treated with the utmost respect by here staff and was given all the time necessary by Dr. Hansen to fulfill my needs and get to the bottom of my medical problems. She is warm, caring, respectful, and trusting while trustworthy. I have worked with and seen many doctors and I can say, without a sliver of doubt, that choosing Dr. Hansen as your Primary Care Provider is choosing to have your health care needs in the best of hands.
wonderful! I highly recommend Dr. Hansen.
She was honest, professional, and very helpful. I liked her a lot.
She seemed very interested and took in a lot of information in a short amount of time. It was my first visit but she appeared very thorough.
Very insightful and a good listener
She is very nice and shows that she genuinely cares about your well-being. If I was in DC longer, I would definitely make her my primary doctor.
Dr. Hansen is nice, engaging, interested and puts you immediately at ease. Some on her staff appear to be extremely disoriented and confused about proper procedure.
She is nice, personable, and supportive. She is focused on you and assumes you share a level of knowlege that's just as important as her professional training. I typically find doctors to be condescending, but Dr. Hansen was the opposite. She dealt with me like I was a person and not a patient.
Great experience with Dr. Hansen! I liked that she tried to get a better understand of my medical history (instead of having me fill out a long form) and that she inquired about my reasons for visiting her. I felt she listened and did a through job taking my vitals. I've lived in DC for 7 years and she's the first good doctor that I've encountered.
I found Dr. Hansen to be attentive, and informative. I'm happy to have found her.
Great! She was very friendly and generous with her time, she seemed interesting in knowing me as a person not just a patient. She seems very down to earth. She also sees a lot of peace corps volunteers/potential volunteers (helpful to me and possibly others).
As a woman of a "certain age", it was a pleasure to meet Dr. Hansen whose health philosophy reflects my own. I am delighted to have "found" her thru ZocDoc.
Perfect, listened to me examined me and gave me the right medicine and I was well within a couple days. Will definitly go back.
Excellent doctor, and very easy to talk to. I'm fairly new to the area and didn't have a regular primary care doc, but I really, really liked her and plan to claim her as my primary care doc.
I can not recommend Dr. Hansen highly enough. I was looking for a doctor to get an annual physical when a friend recommended Dr. Hansen. Prior to the examination she took the time to discuss my history and current concerns regarding my health. She answered my questions in detail and gave her medical opinion but provided many options.
Great personality and excellent rapport with patients. They had just fired a bunch of their admin staff that apparently was causing problems in the past, but seemed to have everything under control. I was in and out for my first visit in 40 minutes.
Great experience! Dr. Hansen is fantastic. From the moment she walked in, I could tell she was an immensely kind person; that's just the kind of energy she has. She truly listened to me and supported me in how I best take care of my health. One of the best doctors I've seen.
This was the easiestappointment I have ever made, and Dr. Hansen is simply fantastic.
My experience with Dr. Hansen was nothing but positive. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor.
Dr. Hansen is great. She conducted an unrushed interview and a gentle examination then provided suggestions for improving my health.
Love love love Dr. Hansen. She has spent more time with me than any other doctor I've ever had. She picked up on small things in my history and made sure we covered them and never once made me feel rushed. One of the best doctors I've ever had/
Great Doctor, Higly recommend her to others
She was great! Really personable and knowledgeable.
My first experience with Dr. Hansen exceeded my expectations. I moved to DC a year ago, and hadn't yet seen a primary care doctor. She was warm, personable, professional, and spent a good deal of time with me on what appeared to be a hectic day. I strongly recommend.
Quite good. Very friendly. First visit, took me into her office where we chatted about who I was, what I was looking for, and how she worked. Then a quick checkup, wrote a prescription or two, and I was off. No wait, no hassle. However, there wasn't any help staff (receptionist or anything like that), but there weren't any other patients either, so not a big deal. Also not a high tech operation, but I haven't heard of any in the district (let alone a really conveniently placed one like this) that have really heavy/advanced IT.
Dr Hansen is hands-down the best doctor I've ever seen in the DC area. There was no wait, she diagnosed me quickly and professionally, but on top of that she was friendly, took her time to talk to me, and made me feel like I was really in good hands. I would definitely recommend Dr Hansen to anyone.
Dr. Hansen is exactly what I want in a physician: good listener, knowledgeable, straightforward, takes the time to explain things and seems to genuinely care about what is going on with you. I was delighted with my first visit with her and am thankful that I found a doctor like her. The online appointment scheduling will also make my life easier!
Dr.Darcy was great! this was a very convienent experience.
She was very thorough, yet efficient and easy to talk to. The office staff was friendly and organized.
My visit with Dr. Hansen was great. Her staff was very professional and nice to me as well.
I just recently had my first visit with Dr. Hansen. She was incredibly welcoming and spent more time with me than any other doctor I've ever met with. She was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond in providing me with information and guidance. Based on just this one visit, I would highly recommend her.
I signed up for a physical and when I got to the office I didn't have to wait at all to see Dr. Hansen. She was kind, warm and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Hansen's receptionist and nurse were very nice, which is great because that's not always the case with doctors and the area. This was my first visit with Dr. Hansen, but from what I can tell, she is capable, thorough and polite. I would recommend her to others.
I usually really hate seeing the doctor, but Dr. Hansen was easy to talk to. She takes the time to talk to patients outside of the exam room, so you can express your health concerns in a more comfortable setting. I've never found it easy to have a real conversation while wearing a paper robe in a drafty room, so I really appreciate the time the doctor takes to get to know you and your family history prior to conducting the exam. If you are looking for a competent, friendly doctor and staff, this is the office for you.
