Specialties

Dr. Carol A Hanson has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

One Star

Dr. Hanson is a thief. They purposely overcharge you con-insurance and by the time you receive EOBs and request your money back, she is too busy to speak to you and will not return your calls. She is uniformed of well-known psychiatric conditions and believes that large amounts of highly addictive drugs are the answer.

a real quack

she is very unprofessional in her billing practices and handles issues with patients in waiting room in front of other patients. She bills inconsistently for office visits so you must be vigilant in reviewing you bill especially if on a no-copay (high deductible) plan. Then when you ask about it she gets angry & defensive, even cutting your appointment short after you have paid for the visit. She even uses your appointment time to discuss billing instead of the reason your there, and of course wants to charge for the whole half hour visit. She causes a lot of stress & anxiety for her patients that are there to get help for depression/anxiety.

All about the money

Waited for almost an hour. Doctor Hanson was super rude to her secretary, didn't even acknowledge I was in her office. Once I went inside with the doctor she was caring more about what insurance I had and how much my copayment was. She called bcbs to check my benefits. Took 20 min to do that. Then she kept asking me about how much I payed for my deductible. Honestly she cared more about the money than anything else. Once she prescribed my medication she took me to her secretaries room and asked her to charge me $150 more dollars to my $50 already copayment I had made. Worst doctor I've ever been too. She looked like she was on drugs, she was slurring her words and couldn't walk properly.

Worst doctor EVER

Worst doctor I've ever been to. Had an appt at 9 am. The doctor was 45 min late. She came in the door scrambling with things in her hands. She looked drunk. Then she started screaming at her secretary (she was so nice and caring) then she just went into her room and slammed the door. The secretary came and ask me if I needed anything, I was honestly ready to go. When the "doctor" decided to come out and attend me she went straight to her secretary office and slammed the door. 2 minutes later she took me in her room and started asking questions really quickly. I was honestly there for 20 min. She prescribed my medication ( which she wrote wrong after 3 tries) she was slurring her words and her eyes were dialated. Then she kept asking me about my copay and insurance. She told her secretary to change me 400$ when my visit was 25$. She is the worst doctor I've ever been to and she needs help!!!
