Dr. Hansen is the best. His demeanor, the way he speaks, his clarity, and his compassion Makes the whole process that much easier. His staff is wonderful as well.

Dr. Hansen is very kind and understanding. I appreciate his time that he took with me. He truly listens to my thoughts and feeling while giving information that is very hard to give to a couple trying to grow their family. Infertility comes with a lot of stress and frustration and Dr. Hansen is very respectful and understanding.

This was my first experience with Dr Hansen. I really enjoyed him.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 1, 2020

Dr. Hansen is always so kind and caring when I have interacted with him. He is a great doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 1, 2020

I would have liked to talk more with the provider with concerns but I understand they had other appointments. Overall, the nurse and staff are great at answering questions

Great bedside manner. Great first impression! Looking forward to having him help guide us on how to grow our family.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 5, 2020

Very nice!

OU Physicians Patient Dec 8, 2019

Dr. Hansen is so wonderful! Listens to what I have to say and thoughtfully considers my situation. Thrilled to have him contribute to my healthcare.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 25, 2019

He explained everything where I could understand it. He made sure thar I understood each step of the IVF process. Dr. Hansen is wonderful

OU Physicians Patient Nov 18, 2019

Dr. Hansen is incredibly knowledgeable in his field, he approaches his patients with a kind bedside manner, he makes his patients feel comfortable and his team is outstanding.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 6, 2019

He is very thorough and compassionate which makes him both, easy to talk to and knowledgeable. Great bedside manner that is hard to find these days!

OU Physicians Patient Nov 6, 2019

We were nervous, and the provider was very good at putting us at ease.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 21, 2019

The team and staff at this clinic are amazing!

OU Physicians Patient Oct 9, 2019

3.5 week wait for the first available D&C is way too long. That's just cruel. Don't even offer it as an option at that point.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 18, 2019

Dr. Hansen is great!

OU Physicians Patient Sep 18, 2019

Very nice

OU Physicians Patient Sep 18, 2019

I was very pleased with his insight and knowledge especially for me being a high risk paraplegic.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 5, 2019

The most amazing staff!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 31, 2019

Very thorough, professional, and knowledgeable!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 29, 2019

I was pretty disappointed when I realized he was never given my medical history I had dropped off a week and half before the appointment. I'm new to seeing a specialist, and perhaps his plans are to get more test results back before he digs a little deeper, but it seemed like I wasn't asked more than basic questions. Also, certain tests would not have been administered due to my physical appearance, but I insisted. I was very thankful that he listened to my insistence. I realize there is a protocol, but I little more empathy for my desperate situation and preparedness would have gone a long way. I did find Dr Hansen very nice and professional as well as the rest of the staff. I was just just thrown when I realized he hadn't reviewed any of my past files and felt like it possibly slowed the process down.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 16, 2019

I trust him!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 16, 2019

Dr. Hansen and his team are so professional, knowledgeable and helpful. They make me feel comfortable and calm during the stresses of infertility. I look forward to continuing my care with Dr. Hansen and would highly recommend him.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 15, 2019

This was my first face to face appointment and she had good bedside manners.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 15, 2019

Fantastic! I am grateful that I am one of his patients.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 15, 2019

He is extremely intelligent

OU Physicians Patient Jul 12, 2019

Kind, sincere, caring, gentle, genuine, understanding, compassionate, awesome, awesome, awesome!!!!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 11, 2019

Dr Hansen was very thorough on answering my questions and provided me a great deal of comfort from our discussion.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 8, 2019

When we get an appointment time it okay to be 15 minutes late but more 45 mins is unacceptable for working people.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 26, 2019

Great experience, looking forward to working with this team.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 24, 2019

I've never felt more comfortable and at ease with any provider in my entire life. I am so thankful to be on this journey with Dr. Hansen!

OU Physicians Patient Jun 24, 2019

He made us feel very comfortable and took the time to explain everything.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 19, 2019

All the staff, from the front desk, nurse and doctor, made me feel welcomed. They answered all my questions and the professionalism made me feel safe. I didn't feel rushed with my care and I just felt comfortable. Haven't had that kind of service in a while. I would highly recommend this clinic.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 10, 2019

Professional staff.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 5, 2019

He made me feel so comfortable about my situation. Gave me some hope and praying to get good results in the future :)

OU Physicians Patient May 1, 2019

OU Physicians Patient Apr 29, 2019

Everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful. Answered all the questions I had and made me feel at ease.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 17, 2019

PA filled in for Dr. Hansen. I was comfortable with her examination and appreciated the offer to see her in a timely manner since Dr. Hansen was running behind schedule.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 10, 2019

Hansen has taken great time to explain each procedure carefully and make sure I am comfortable. He has paid extra care to my history and taken my allergies and asthma into strong consideration before making decisions.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 8, 2019

I am very pleased with my provider and very lucky to have a provider that listens and cares so much

OU Physicians Patient Apr 3, 2019

Recently, the wait has become longer. Other than that, we couldn't complain! Great staff!

OU Physicians Patient Mar 24, 2019

My husband and I were very impressed with the level of detail Dr. Hansen provided to us. We felt well heard and understood the steps going forward for our care.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 25, 2019

This was not my primary doctor that I was seeing at ou research hospital. He filled in great every time my doctor was gone.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 20, 2019

Love the OU reproductive medicine clinic, Dr. Hansen was so long and made me feel so comfortable throughout my treatment. Would definitely recommend him

OU Physicians Patient Feb 20, 2019

He is so nice and considerate I would definitely recommend him as a fertility docter

OU Physicians Patient Feb 7, 2019

I have already recommended several friends go to this practice

OU Physicians Patient Dec 19, 2018

I've already recommended Dr. Hansen to friends and family. This has been a long and hard process. He is the first doctor that has tuned into all of my health issues and made sure to keep me safe and healthy during treatment. He takes plenty of time to pause and explain things. He is calming and reduces stress.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 13, 2018

Dr. Hansen is not my typical provider at the clinic, however he saw me due to some spotting I was having. He was very kind and I would recommend him to others. He put my mind and husband's at ease while still giving us information that we needed to hear without sugar coating anything. He has great bed side manner. We were able to see our baby and hear it's heartbeat which brought so much relief to both my husband and I. We truly feel taken care of at this clinic from check in to check out!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 6, 2018

Dr. Hansen never makes me feel rushed. he always explains things in a way I can understand and he has great bedside manner.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 18, 2018

I have always felt incredibly confident in Dr. Hansen's care for me and my family. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, and organized.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 2, 2018

I was not feeling well the day I came in, but didn't want to reschedule (expensive charge if you don't give 24 hr notice) and he was very kind and made sure I understood plan of action and my new medications. He clarifies everything! I wish could see him for a few other issues I have been having-- he's that good!

OU Physicians Patient May 21, 2018

he was very thorough but was also aware of time so we could develop a plan of action together. he gave me detailed information about what he thought was going on so I felt reassured when I left the office. not only did he seem genuinely caring about the issues I've been dealing with, he seems genuinely interested and passionate about what he does. he was able to establish a rapport quickly that I have confidence putting my life in his hands.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 18, 2018

Dr Hansen and his staff provide the best care I could ask for for our infertility issues

OU Physicians Patient Apr 4, 2018

I have been seeing Dr. Hansen for infertility for the past 6 months. I have found him to be consistently professional, thoughtful, and open with my husband and I -- explaining things in ways that are very easy for us to understand, listening to our concerns, and adapting our plans accordingly.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 21, 2018

Dr. Hansen was very informative, thorough, and kind.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 29, 2018

Best provider ever! I recommend him ALL the time!

OU Physicians Patient Dec 30, 2017

Dr. Hansen was very kind, thorough and made me feel at ease with my treatment options. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

OU Physicians Patient Nov 15, 2017

was amazing, felt like he understood what we wanted and would do whatever he needed to help us

OU Physicians Patient Nov 8, 2017

We came to Dr Hansen not because we already have a fertility issue, but because we want to be pro-active and identify any issues we may encounter when trying to conceive and during pregnancy. Even though we have no indications we might have an issue that can be treated, Dr Hansen took the time to sit with us and share his knowledge which has been invaluable in the next decisions we are making as a family. Through his knowledge, patience and care he has been able to ease a lot of our worries and we left the consultation reassured we are on the right path and armed with crucial new information we were missing. This has been by far one of the better experiences I've even had with a physician.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 11, 2017

Amazing physician and shadowing physician! I'm so glad I was recommended by a couple people to come see Dr. Hansen!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 21, 2017

Dr. Hansen is one of the best providers I have ever had! Considering the nature of the medical issue, God could not have provided me with better care. From day one, we felt comfortable and reassured. Many doctors have not mastered the fine balance of the hard and soft skills of doctoring. Dr. Hansen is an exemplary example of such finesse.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 9, 2017

this doctor was amazing!! would highly recommend

OU Physicians Patient Jun 19, 2017

Dr. Hansen is a wonderful doctor! Very thorough, very compassionate, very good at explaining every step of the process. I would recommend him to anybody!

OU Physicians Patient Jun 7, 2017

Dr. Hansen is very detailed and goes over everything! I have gone to another fertility specialist that didn't take the time like he did.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 5, 2017

Dr. Hansen was wonderful. When I saw _____ I had a much different and worse experience.

OU Physicians Patient May 3, 2017

We felt a strong connection with Dr. Hansen. He seemed genuinely sincere, and demonstrated his goal was to help us. We have spoken with several fertility providers in recent months, this was the only time we did not feel rushed and could fully understand what we were being told. We had many opportunities to ask questions and the dialogue created was helpful and beneficial. We felt that Dr. Hansen was honest with us about our chances for IVF, which tells us a lot about him as a doctor. I have a PhD, so I appreciate research, studies, etc. He explained current research that applies directly to us in a way that was meaningful to me, but also so my husband fully understood the implications of the results. He was warm and caring and extremely helpful. He made our decision to move forward with OU Physicians very easy.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 1, 2017

Dr. Hansen is awesome

OU Physicians Patient Feb 1, 2017

Connie, Amber, Cynthia & the whole staff have been excellent in their care & professionalism.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 24, 2016

Dr. Hansen is very kind and so knowledgeable. He was highly recommended by RN Nancy Finn and he did not disappoint. we fell very comfortable with him and he explained everything very well. he took the time to address our concerns and he showed compassion when I became very nervous. we are very happy with our treatment so far.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 12, 2016

Every provider in this office (and I've met four of them now) are amazing.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 26, 2016

First time seeing Dr.Hansen, super pleased! He went over everything he was doing, he was patient with all my questions. The other DR even offered to hold my hand! :)

OU Physicians Patient Sep 21, 2016

Dr. Hansen is always very calm in consulting with me, and I appreciate that.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 22, 2016

Dr Hansen is very thorough, empathetic and intelligent.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 20, 2016

Dr.Hansen is clearly very knowledgeable about reproductive endocrinology however when dealing with a sensitive subject like a failed pregnancy he needs to be much more understanding that I am not just a statistic and that my failed pregnancy is not just a problem that needs to be taken care of. While it may be just another day in the office to him, the patient and their family just lost a baby and may not necessarily be able to cope with that information as quickly as he can and some sensitivity towards that would be nice. In addition, understanding that the couple needs time to process this information before making any major decisions would be nice as well. I understand that he is a busy man with a schedule but pressuring someone into a decision to support a research study is not the way to go.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 15, 2016

I love Teresa, the PA. She actually takes her time to explain everything and go over any concerns I had.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 6, 2016

the same nurse twice would be great.

OU Physicians Patient May 25, 2016

Dr. Hanson is not my usual provider at this clinic, but he was on call for the weekend. I would VERY HIGHLY recommend him to couples struggling with infertility. I have complete confidence in his knowledge, and he is very compassionate toward women dealing with infertility.

OU Physicians Patient May 1, 2016

I appreciated the way the provider went through information with me. I have sort of a unique and time-sensitive case and it was clear from our discussion that the provider knew that and how to handle. He was very straightforward with the information I needed, without being unfeeling.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 27, 2016

Dr. Hansen took the time to describe the procedures I already had had, future treatments and medication in a way that both my husband and I left with a greater understanding of our situation than before. Previous doctors had not been so clear in communication.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 6, 2016

Hansen was very kind, but wasn't concerened by my reaction to the medication I was on. To be fair he isn't my primary, but explaining my case every time I go in to a different Dr is getting really frustrating.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 4, 2016

Michelle Starkey, RN, is actually who I saw, instead of Dr. Hansen. She has a resident do an ultrasound to see if I had any cysts or growths causing issues with my cycle. I was very happy with the attention I received.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 24, 2016

He was good, just quieter and more serious than other doctors I am used to.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 20, 2016

The doctor took his time to explain everything to us. He also listened to any questions or concerns that we had. He did not rush in our appointment. He was very positive and made us feel like we can have a family.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 6, 2016

was not happy with the fact that my procedure was not concluded in a timely manner. also provider needs to have more flexible OR time/days to deal with complications

OU Physicians Patient Jan 4, 2016

There needs to be a policy that babies and children are NOT welcome in the waiting room of the INFERTILITY CLINIC. Almost every time I go, someone with zero common empathy is using the waiting room as a babysitting site while a dozen women sit there about to start bawling. I have seen women have to actually get up and leave the room. You basically have your composure completely wrecked even before you get into the exam room.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 9, 2015

Dr. Hansen was very knowledgeable and compassionate. I appreicate the time he took with us.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 9, 2015

This doctor is extremely personable and easy to talk to. He goes above and beyond to personally call me himself and discuss test results. He also shows interest in problems that are out of his field yet he wants lab work that he hasn't received to make sure someone doesn't miss something. He also wants carbon copies of Dexa scans to monitor them even though another doctor ordered them. He makes me feel very reassured and actually informed me of some test abnormalities in my lab work that occurred in march that no one informed me about.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 12, 2015

Dr. Hansen is a great doctor and he is very encouraging!

OU Physicians Patient Sep 16, 2015

I can't sing Dr. Hansen's praises enough! I'd HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat! Excellent bedside manner, attention to detail, he takes his time & makes me feel like a person, instead of a number. We need more doctors like him!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 31, 2015

Dr. Hansen made sure I had opportunities to ask questions and answered them thoroughly.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 6, 2015

Dr Hansen addressed all of my questions and helped ease my concerns regarding my medical issues.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 17, 2015
