Dr. Hanson was extremely personable and helpful. Many of her recommendations included types of OTC products to use AND avoid. The office and nursing staff were very polite and kind as well! We got there 15 minutes before our appointment timebecause we had just scheduled it the day before (Sunday) and knew there would be new patient paperwork that would need to be filled it. The timing was perfect! Highly recommend this practice!

Seen 20 minutes after appointment time. Nurse was polite and friendly; she also gave me a couple samples so I wouldn't have to make an extra trip to the store. Dr. Hanson concurred with the original opinion, but also recommended anadditional specialist due to how my condition was evolving. The nurse even called them to see if I could be immediately accommodated.

I waited for over half an hour in the waiting area to be called back and then half an hour in the exam room before I was seen by the doctor. She was friendly but the skin exam was extremely rushed,probably around five minutes at most. After waiting for over an hour to be seen, I was startled by how little time I was given. I'm not sure how much of her attention was really on what she was doing and not on getting to the next patient. Judging by the fliers and posters on the wall, this office seems more interested in cosmetic dermatology than anything else. Perhaps if I'd been interested in botox or filler injections I would have been given more time. Since my main concern is a family history of skin cancer, I'm not sure I'll be back.

It took over an hour for me to see the doctor and even then all she did was try to sell me their products. Products like spf cream and face wash. Very disappointed!

My appointment was at 11:15 and I wasn't seen by the doctor until 12:15. A little disappointed at that but I understand it can happen. Dr. Hansen was very professional but I felt like our appointment was rushed. I told hermy dermatology concerns and she came back with an immediate plan and 3 different medications all within 4-5 minutes. I just wish there was a doctor who didn't care about the 15 minute appointment allotment time and really cared about the patient. That might help me understand longer waiting times.
