Being within two degrees of a wheelchair for the rest of my life was a genuine reality. My life centered on where I am sitting now to where I'm going to be sitting next. No shopping, going out to dinner and especially no crowds. Now I don't even think about it. I just do it. I can never sing the praises of this outstanding doctor and all of the associated people. The " A " TEAM if there ever was one. Do what he tells you, go to therapy and you will be a happy camper, guaranteed.”

“I first went to Dr. Hanson in years ago. He did champion work on my right shoulder and I was extremely pleased. His response time was unbelievably quick, too. My husband and I were both so happy with every aspect of SPOC's care. Eleven years later, that accident has resulted in advanced arthritis and severe pain. Greg Mellor spent an hour with me, going over my MRI, explaining, teaching, and advising me. We worked out a plan starting from the least invasive treatments, only moving on to surgery as a last option. I am so grateful for the attitude of this medical group. They put their patients best interest first, not the easiest or quickest or most profitable actions. I live in Missouri and went to California for this appointment and it was (is) worth every mile! I highly recommend SPOC in general (I also had this same kind of treatment from Dr. Thomas and Dr. Tanner), and Dr. Hanson in particular.”

“The reason I have chosen the doctors at Sierra Pacific for care is that my family and I and many of our friends have always had the most up to date professional care. And that is every time we have seen any of the doctors in your facility over the years. All of us recommend your facility to everyone we come in contact with. As far as we are concerned there is not another available place in the valley for orthopedic care. I have seen Drs. Hanson and Johnson, my husband saw Hanson, Johnson, Aryan and Gizel, who passed away. Some of my friends have seen Drs. Tanner, Gill, Schultz and Thaxter. All have been relieved from joint pain as well as broken bones and many other conditions.”
– Louisa M.
“Dr. Hanson was very kind, friendly and professional. He took time with me and was not rushed, which I appreciate. He explained what he saw on the ex-rays and MRI and gave me my options.

– Eugenia S.
“Dr. Hansen is an excellent surgeon. Under his guidance I went through my pre-op therapy and was well prepared when it was time to have my total knee replacement. After surgery I followed his advice and made a rapid recover. His emphasis on exercise again helped my speedy recovery. My experience with his office staff and PA was also excellent. I wouldn’t heditate to recommend him and will be coming back to him in the future if I need my other knee done.”

“There are not enough words of praise for Dr Hanson and PA Greg Mellor. I was very, very close to giving up and being in a wheel chair for the rest of my life due to a previous experience. My visit literally turned my world around. This surgery has improved my life on a level I truly thought was unattainable. 180 degrees. I am probably the only person around who is absolutely excited about surgery for knee #2. The sooner the better. Yesterday will not be soon enough! ! !”
