Really enjoyed the short, professional visit with Dr. Hanson. Effecient and thorough! Thanks.
Dr Miriam was very good she seemed very knowledgeable and very nice.The office is nice, clean and modern. So far my experience with this office has been good.
Excellent consultation with Dr. Hanson and Amy. Very easy communicate with and left feeling very confident and well-informed. Look forward to working with them in the future.
Dr. Hanson was so nice and friendly!
Super sweet and understanding I would def recommend Dr M for any skin concerns.
Waited far too long in the waiting room after my app at 3:30. I arrived at 3pm and handed in my paper work but 3:15. Did not get seen by the doctor until 4:15.
Dr. Hanson was very personable, friendly, and knowledgable. Her staff was also great! They all knew what they were talking about and were very friendly as well. I was able to get all of my questions answered and needs addressed. I will definitely continue to see Dr. Hanson!
She was very professional, thorough and kind! Definitely recommend her!
She was amazing! Very knowledgeable, and precise. I would recommend her and ZocDoc to friends and family.
The office is lovely and modern. Dr. Hansen and her staff are very professional, knowledgeable, and nice.
All the staff was amazing and really friendly! They really listened to me and worked with my financial situation, etc??????
Always such a pleasure to go to the doctor at Sanova Dermatology. The staff there is always friendly and happy. It feels more like a relaxing spa then a doctor's office.
She was very polite and accommodating. Her staff was friendly and they assisted me well. She addressed all my concerns and questions effectively. I plan to go back to her for all my skin related concerns. I hope everything we discussed works out for me. I would highly recommend her.
The office staff from the start was fantastic! I actually got lost and they assisted me so I could find the building! Even though I was almost 45 minutes late because of this, they still were very friendly and attentive to my needs! First impression was remarkable! Definitely sticking with them and highly recommend this staff and doctor!
She is amazing! Very thorough and genuinely concerned for her patients!
I really appreciate her conservative treatment approach!
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!
She and her staff were all wonderful! Professional, yet very personable. She took care of business, but did not seem at all rushed. Willing to answer all questions, and good at calming fears. :) Extremely painless with the biopsy done...to my great surprise! :) Thank you, Dr Hanson!
Amazing as always, and I will forever be sending prospects her way :)
She actually listened to my concerns and gave me all my options for treatment and let me choose what route I wanted to take.
Very chic / modern office with a great friendly and energetic staff. I went in for a general consultation about my skin. The doctor gave me a few treatment options and some products for starters. I was glad they didn't push me for any opi
Dr. Hanson was very professional and personable. I did feel a little rushed through the consultation. There were a few questions I had that we're not answered because I felt she wanted to wrap it up.
Everyone was super professional and made me feel comfortable.
Took care of my issue in this visit.
Reception was very welcoming, they did a great job explaining insurance coverage. I only waited a few minutes to be seen. The nurse that was assisting was excellent, she was very kind and explained every step of the process throughout the entire appointment.
First time visit. Liked her and her staff. Did a good job of going over the treatment plan more than once, questions, etc. Nice office too.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Doctor was patient with my kids being in the room with me, speedy visit that covered all my concerns!
Dr Hanson was friendly and considerate from the start!. She apologized for the long wait I had that day and began right away discussing my concerns. She gave me some samples to try as well as some lifestyle changes. I appreciated the fact she didnt just focus on pushing meds. The rest of the staff was wonderful as well!
So glad I came to them! Highly qualified, genuinely caring and attentive staff.
Dr Hanson was very nice & professional. I had to have a biopsy done & she made sure I was at ease through out the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr Hanson & her staff.
Dr. Hanson was knowledgeable and caring, what you like in a doctor. She took her time and explained everything. I've seen many dermatologists, and she was excellent. The office is nice because they do both the medical and the aesthetic side.
Staff friendly. Doctor was easy to talk to and was able to provide answers and explain the options to me. Like that she was able to actually take care of some of my request on the first visit.
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 her my 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.
I was looking for some clearer answers to one of the issues I was having. Though I was assured it was alright, she could not tell me exactly what it was, so that has left me with some anxiety and uncertainty about it.
Great bedside manner and very thorough.
I've seen several dermatologists over the years and Miriam was by far the most helpful and knowledgable I've seen. She was very friendly and would definitely recommend!
Excellent service, very professional and friendly staff would highly recommend.
Dr. Hanson was wonderful and I will definitely be going back. The only thing I would change is the wait time.
I thought she was wonderful. It was my first visit to the dermatologist ever, and she made me feel at ease.
I highly recommend Dr Hanson and her team, they are all very professional, friendly and take time to ensure you have a good appointment.
Disappointing. They put me in a room and forgot about me until I started to leave after waiting 30-45 min.
Dr. Hanson was very friendly and took care of me quickly.
Very professional staff and doctor. Clean office, would recommended to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Very pleased. Nervous to have the areas of concern examined, but relieved now that it is over. Dr Hanson is a consummate professional and I am glad Zoc Doc found her for me. I will continue to use her services and recommend her to my family and friends.
Despite being a little nervous going in, the nurses and Dr. Hanson made me feel very comfortable during my visit.
Dr Hanson is very sweet. She knows what the exact problem and suggest treatment after answering all the questions by patient.
Dr Hanson is very thorough and knowledgable! I recommend her to all my friends!
She was thorough and wonderfully pleasant!
I only wish the wait time wasn't so long!
She seemed genuinely concerned. I am impressed.
It was amazing. I received more than what I even asked for. I told her the problems and what I didn't want to happen. And she catered to my preferences and explained everything that was happening. She seemed like a friend to me and was genuinely concerned and ready to help. I would recommend her to everyone.
she is wonderful! very friendly and approachable . love my visits!
Very professional, calming and informative. Never felt rushed.
Once I was seen, the appt went very quick and was very painless. Dr. Hanson was professional but kind, and the nurse who was with her was an absolute sweetheart. I would go back to them in an instant.
I went to see Dr. Hanson for an annual skin check. She is consistently extremely professional and friendly at the same time--a rare find in the medical field. :) She has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever seen, and I feel confident in her ability to monitor any unusual moles etc. to prevent skin cancer. She communicates well and upon leaving I felt well informed. Her staff was also friendly and helpful. I was even reassured that I had not been forgotten during my 15 minute wait for Dr. Hanson. I will definitely return in the near future!
Great office, great staff and Dr. Hanson was wonderful. Very down to earth and personable.
I had a great dermatologist visit.. she is so sweet and made me feel so comfortable as I was so nervous she was patient and over all I had. Great visit staff is friendly and helpful.
Took the time to evaluate my issue and explain to me the possible causes as well as possible treatments.
Dr. Hanson is amazing! I am so glad I found her to be my dermatologist.
Dr. Hanson and her assistant were both wonderful. I am very afraid of doctors, needles, and any procedures at all, and they both helped me tremendously through the whole procedure. Dr. Hanson is very compassionate and gentle, as well as encouraging. The procedure was over quickly and almost completely painless. I will be going back for follow ups and would recommend her to anyone.
I have been looking for a new dermatologist that I liked since mine retired 4 years ago, and I finally found one I like. Dr. Hanson takes the time to visit with you about all your concerns, and will work with you on skin care solutions that fit your needs. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I never been to a dermatologist before and I was impressed with Dr. Hanson and her staff. Dr. Hanson is extremely knowledgeable and supremely nice. She was extremely helpful, answered all of my questions, and took really good care of me. I waited less than 10 minutes before I was called in. During the meantime, you have unlimited access to coffee/tea/ and Hershey's Kisses.
Very professional and friendly visit. Excellent office staff and nearly no wait times. Will definitely come back.
She is fantastic! She explained my procedure with detail and took my nervousness away! The waiting time was kinda long but understandable because it was a busy day for her! Over all my visit was wonderful!!
She made me feel really comfortable especially after seeing how confident she is in her field of practice. Will definitely come back to her whenever needed. Thank you dr. Miriam!
I thought she was very thorough, she explained everything to me and helped me understand each step and the pricing.. Will definitely be going back!
Barely even looked at my skin. Very pushy to sell products. Very unhelpful.
The visit was very pleasant and Dr. Hanson was very friendly and personable. I definitely would recommend her. The best thing is she can do medical and cosmetic procedures. I am going back to get some other procedures done with her.
Very nice and smart
They were very nice and I felt comfortable.
Excellent. Thoughtful, complete and making sure I understood every recommendation, process and follow up. I am very impressed with her and the entire practice.
Dr. Hanson is fantastic!
Dr. Hanson was very personable and spent plenty of time with me.
Would highly recommend Dr. Hanson. Her office staff and nursing staff are very professional and helpful. I will be going back for removal of problems next week. Will be glad to complete the process.
It was a great experience! Everyone is so helpful and friendly.
My only concern that I had is that I felt a little rushed. Everything else went really well. The place was very modern and the people were very nice.
Professional, exudes self-confidence, warm and friendly bedside manner.
She was very helpful and friendly!
She's a great doctor! Very informative, asks questions.
Entire office staff was extremely courteous, professional and friendly. I was very pleasantly surprised by this office. Dr. Hanson was very helpful with providing treatment options and reassurance.
Dr Hanson was fantastic. She is brief and to the point but I like that in a doctor. She was able to answer all my questions take care of my issues on the spot and helped me design a plan for the future. Fantastic Experience.
Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Dr Hanson was genuine, professional and kind. I will definitely use this office again.
I will reserve most judgement until I meet with her again, but there was one thing that really bothered me in my consultation with Dr. Hanson. She brought in an assistant to (I assume) take her notes during the skin check, but she never introduced her to me or explained why she was in the room. During the examination, she addressed my body as if I were not in the room, directing the comments to her assistant. If this is standard practice, that's fine. If this is her personal preference, that is fine. However, a 3-second introduction as to why another person was present would have made a huge difference in the mildly uncomfortable/awkward examination.
Dr. Hanson was curteous and professional. She performed a full-body skin cancer screening, taking pictures and measuring freckles we need ot keep an eye on and telling me what to look for in self exams. Her staff was also curteous and professional. Too often you will get only one; either the doctor will be curteous, or the staff. Not here, everyone was at the top of their game.
It was great. She gave clear explanations of the symptoms and root causes. She also explained the medications and preventive measures.
Very friendly and personal. everyone involved very professional and caring. my diagnosis is pending biopsy report at this time.
It was quick, a little unsure of the information being provided as it was given to me quickly...I felt a bit uncertain of my visit as it was my first time visiting a Dermatologist.
I liked Miriam but I did not like the staff. There was a lot of miscommunication and I had to wait a while.
Overall good, but there was a snafu getting my prescription sent to the correct pharmacy
It was great! Going back next month for a follow up!
Will definitely return and refer!!!
Her diagnosis was swift without a lot of further questioning or examination. I suppose she has "seen it all" and was able to quickly diagnose "psoriasis" but I am getting a second opinion...
Very professional. Very nice and covered all of my questions.
Wonderful. She discussed a lot of options with me and helped to rule out the ones that really would not work for me.
The visit went great! Dr Hanson really put my mind at ease. She knows her stuff!
Twice i went and she diagnosed correctly and allergies went away
Loved it. Very caring
It's very easy to see that Dr. Hanson knows what she's doing. I went in for a full skin check, and it was very quick. I had a weird bump on my leg, and she took one glance at it and described exactly how it looked and felt and when I likely got it, which was all correct. She was very professional and very clear in her explanations of everything.
Dr. Hanson was thorough, thoughtful, and very nice. She explained things well and has a very reassuring manner.
She was terrific. Friendly and professional staff.
Dr. Hanson, was professional, helpful, and polite. I was a bit nervous during a procedure, and she went out of her way to put me at ease. I spent less than five minutes in the waiting room, and the entire staff was informative and kind.
Found my dermatologist in Austin. Not only were my skin issues addressed, but also, Dr. Hanson suggested treatment as well as a full body scan. I greatly appreciated the option to return or extend the visit. She found a suspicious mole, did a biopsy and provided a procedure for my skin problems. I definately recommend Dr. Hanson.
Awesome Doc!!! Great personality, very professional and thorough!!
I was very impressed with Dr. Miriam Hanson. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I would recommend her services to anyone (and have already done so!)
Physician was professional, friendly and to the point diagnosing the problem.
Very impressed with Dr. Hanson a nd her staff! I have found my doctor!
I was very impressed with Dr. Hanson's knowledge about my skin condition. I felt very comfortable immediately and will never see a different Dermatologist :)
I was already so impressed that i got in within a week of calling, i did not even mind waiting for about half and hour. I doubt that is typical anyway. Dr. Hanson is professional, friendly, and made sure that i understood everything she was telling me. I left with good advice, a free sample, and an appointment set for the following week for my daughter! I will definitley recommend her to all of my friends and colleagues.
Very professional and a great sense of humor.
She's warm, caring and explains things really well. Overall great vibe in the office and her staff and everyone there is just super nice. 5 stars!
Beautiful office and staff isnwonderful
Dr. Hanson was thorough, knowledgable, considerate, reassuring, patient, a great listener and communicated clearly and concisely. d I am very happy to have found a dermatologist whom I like and trust. I her highly recommend Dr. Hanson.
Excellent as always
I love Dr. Hanson! She is very caring and took her time in listening to my issue and determining a diagnosis and solution to my issue.
Very professional lady, knowledgeable, and a delight to meet.
Very thorough exam, painless biopsy, charming "bedside manner." I especially appreciated the pre-visit online medical history forms.
Easy, not stressful, very pleasant experience
Dr. Hanson is a superb and personable dermatologist. I had some moles removed and didn't feel a thing.
She was awesome. She listened to my concerns, patient and very wise
Dr. Hanson was fantastic. Punctual and was understood my concerns about my issue. Made another followup appointment.
Very nice doctor.
She was very knowledgeable, friendly and kind. Very gentle and super nice. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better doctor and a better experience! Highly recommended! I look forward to seeing her for all of my dermatological needs. Thank you!
I absolutely this place!
Very professional, friendly, spotless office and facilities. Dr. Hanson is very personable.
It was fantastic. My daughter had previously seen another dermatologist who frankly acted like she didn't care and just wanted us out of the office as quickly as possible. In fact, the previous dermatologist suggestions bordered on ridiculous. We were glad to find someone so thorough and caring!
Professional, friendly doctor who took the time to explain my diagnoses and options. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hanson and her office.
Dr. Hanson is energetic, kind, and very personable. I felt very at ease and cared for and could tell she had my best interest in mind. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
I LOVE Dr. Hanson! She is very knowledgable and spends time talking with you about your problem and even brainstormed with me to see what the best course of action for my acne would be!
Dr. Hanson was very thorough in my visit and really helped with my scalp psoriasis. She also checked my whole body for any suspicious marks after I was curious about one. Highly recommend her!
Loved her "practical approach" as well as her "extra" fun consultation!
Mariam is wonderful! She is knowledgeable and friendly. She made me feel very comfortable.
The office is lovely and relaxed. The young lady at the front desk was very sweet and helpful. I loved that the "forms" are all electronic. My wait was nominal. The nurse was very nice. Dr. Hanson was warm and friendly. She did not rush. We talked about my concerns. She made recommendations. She did her examination and asked questions. We decided on a course of treatment and I felt better after leaving her office. I have already recommended Dr. Hanson to 2 friends of mine, just hours after my appointment.
Office staff and Dr. Hanson were all friendly and welcoming. I also liked being able to fill out all the paperwork online prior to my appointment.
I always find Dr. Hanson very personable and so helpful in options. Everyone else in the office is wonderful as well.
I felt very comfortable and welcome. She made everything fast so I was in and out!
Dr. Hanson is a great physician. She really listens and takes her time describing different options. All of which I really appreciate with my troubling condition.
Dr. Hanson and her staff at Sonova are pure bliss, and I'm a patient for life. I've been to every one of the big name dermatology clinics in the Austin & Round Rock areas, and non of them can hold a flame to Dr. Hanson & her staff, no doubt. She's the only dermatologist in the area I would recommend. She writes for top beauty publications, and is a nationally recognized dermatologist. What more could you ask for?
I have been seeing Dr. Hanson monthly for an ongoing treatment, and each time I go to the office I notice how clean it is. Her staff is very friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend this practice for anyone needing a dermatologist for something simple or for something serious. Dr. Hanson can take care of anything.
I thought she was very interested in my health and was very thorough. I plan to go back on a follow up visit and would highly recommend her to any patient.
Dr. Hanson and her staff are all amazing and went beyond my expectations to provide a welcoming atmosphere. Best dermatology office in town hands down!
The receiptionist area could be improved. There is only one woman to check people in and out, make appointments, etc. I had to wait a good 5 minutes when I arrived just to check in.
She was very polite and helpful. She made me feel as if I was talking to my own mother for advice. I def recommend her to anyone who needs assistance.
I was excited she was able to remove a mole the same day.. She was very friendly and funny.
I had been to 2 other dermatologists before her and they didn't really listen and work to diagnose/fix my skin problem. Dr Hanson laid out a very clear strategy for managing my psoriasis in the short term and long term. She was also very good at explaining about the treatment options available in detail.
She was very nice and was happy to answer all of my questions.
Dr. Hanson and her staff are incredibly pleasant, professional, and helpful. The office is very clean and comfortable. I would send anyone I like to see her without thinking twice.
She was extremely helpful...I can't wait to get started on my treatment!
I was very impressed with not only Dr. Hanson, but with her staff. I would highly recommend them!
Excellent! Thorough and provided a detailed explanation of options. Highly recommend.
She listens patiently and lays out all my options.
JUST AWESOME AND FAST!!!
Dr. Hanson and her staff are incredibly kind. They are very careful listeners and as a result, they provide terrific care. Love them!
Dr hanson was super friendly, fast, to the point and didn't mind when I asked clarification on something. She was very patient with all my questions even when she had already answered them a few minutes before. I'll be seeing her again soon.
Dr.Hanson's staff was very kind. The office is like a museum of modern art. All of my concerns were addressed. The doctor and nurses went above and beyond to make sure they were thorough during my appointment. I give this visit an A++
I dread going to doctors of any kind, but Dr. Hanson and her staff made my visit a really easy and pleasent experience. I definitely recommend going to see Dr. Hanson.
She was very friendly, warm, and informative. She made me feel comfortable, as this was my first trip to any Dermatologist. I'm excited to begin using the products she recommended and look forward to my follow-up visit.
They were outstanding in every facet from the receptionist to the asst to Doctor Hansen. I did not a reference and they had it within the hour! Simply charming!!!
Very personable and professional.
I have spent a significant amount of time and money in an effort to clear up my acne. From the beginning the staff made me feel comfortable and Dr. Hanson took her time making sure I understood the treatment she was recommending. I left the office feeling like I finally had a solution for my problem.
Very personable. Explains everything very well. Tells you everything she is going to do for procedure so there are no surprises. Very thorough. Office is spotless and staff and nurses are very personable and respectful. A very good first time visit.
Excellent. She was very nice, helpful and professional. I really liked the fact that she took her time and didn't rush through the appointment.
I went to see her several times to resolve my skin problems. Each visit was pleasant. I will continue to see Dr Hanson in the future if/when needed.
Fantsstic! She was wonderful with my son. He felt very comfortable with her.
We like the service.
Fantastic Excellent range of expertise in her field. She presented me with some options and gave me time to think about what is the best treatment for me
So sweet and helpful
A great help, answered all of my questions in a timely manner.
She & her staff were extremely friendly, helpful & professional. The Dr found a precancerous lesion that I did not know about & immediately attended to. The nurse educated me on some skin issues. I feel very fortunate to have found Senovia Dermatogy & returning for another appointment. Highly recommend .
Dr. Hanson is very warm and friendly - her staff is also great! She addressed all my questions from the paper work I filled out prior to my appointment and answered them thoroughly. I will definitely recommend her and her clinic to my family and friends :)
She was great! She answered all my questions very thoroughly and not rushed at all during the appointment.
Dr. Hanson is very professional and thorough -- I visited to have a mole checked out on my cheek and she also took a look at my back (apparently a trouble spot for guys). She is located in a new office building (clean and modern) with a comfortable waiting room, but I didn't stay there long as they had me in an exam room very soon after completing paperwork (if you fill out your medical history online it will help). I'll definitely visit Dr. Hanson again and recommend her to friends and family!
This was my first visit with Dr. Miriam for an anual skin screening due to a family history of skin cancer. Yes I was blessed with frecked fair skin. Dr. Miriam was very professional, easy to converse with, and very informative. I highly recommend Dr. Miriam.
Very professional and friendly. Thoroughly answered our questions.
Very good profeccional. She is very friendly
It was great. Highly recommended.
Excellent doctor! I am glad I found Dr. Hanson. She's my new dermatologist. I cannot recommend her more.
Dr. Hanson is great! She listened to each of my concerns and answered all of my questions
understood and gave me treatment that helped right away. very apprecaitive.
The visit went very well was very happy with the results and happy that she will see me right away when needed.
Very kind and knowledgeable.
Easy to talk to. Reasonable. Professional. Knowledgeable...
Dr.Hanson was wonderful. I had a mole removed and she was great about explaining everything and was patient with all my questions. I asked about sunscreen suggestions and she gave me some. I appreciate that she didn't try to sell me on other procedures like other dermatologist. I really wish I could find a primary doctor as good as Dr.Hanson.
Loved her! Switching doctors now to make her my regular dermatologist!
She was professional, nice
