The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Hanson.
“Had a MRI and the staff were very process and polite. The technician explained the procedure and what I would experience which out me at ease.”
– Keith B.
“I've been so pleased from the start at how organized the experience has been. Information was dispensed methodically via computer on the Health Loop. Information given at the pre-op appointment was written and also given orally, point by point. I could purchase my prescriptions prior to surgery, instructions for what to do before surgery and the post-op visit, etc. Everything went well during surgery and the two days I spent in the hospital. I felt very prepared for my first PT appointment today.”
– Sheila S.
“I am in the process of having my knee replaced and Dr. Hanson's staff has been very helpful preparing me for this procedure.”
– Janice Q.
“Dr. Hanson did a great job of explaining my injury and the options I had to get myself back in action. I appreciate the time that is taken to show me with models what exactly is going on and letting me choose my next course of action after giving his advice. Dr. Hanson was able to get moving again after I had a knee injury from a motorcycle accident. That injury there was a non surgical answer. My shoulder was better served with a operation. I was amazed how much more confidence I had in my arm after just a week! I am sorry I waited 2 years before doing anything about it! I might not be a professional athlete, or anyone famous, but I share my time and talents with so many people and I am happy to say I can continue living my life in full motion and almost pain free! (Just need to give it more time!) Thank you Doc!”

“Every aspect of my experience with Sierra Pacific Orthopedics and Dr. Eric Hanson and his staff has been first-rate. The entire staff including, but not limited to, the X-ray, lab, MRI, clerical, nursing staff, and his PA Greg Mellor have been outstanding. Their interest and concern on your personal situation and injury are genuine. The time waiting for any service or appointment is minimal and they always return phone calls. I had total knee replacement and the outcome has been great. (Currently 2 1/2 months post-op). I had seen two other doctors prior to coming to Sierra Pacific and have never looked back. I highly recommend Sierra Pacific and will continue to be their patient should the need arise.”
