An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

I was a patient of Dr. Hansen for many years before she moved over to the Armed Forces Retirement Center. I really miss her 'Direct' manner of addressing issues. Other reviewers are sort of right...Dr. Hansen is brutally honest. She will tell you the truth, right to your face...whether you choose to get all offended and weepy is your business. Myself, I liked it. I am tired of doctors who can't or won't tell you when you are being an idiot with your lifestyle; doctors who sit at their keyboard and never look you in the eye; doctors who pass out drugs, just based on what YOU want or what the Internet told you. That ain't her. You want the uncolored truth, even if it isn't what you want to hear? You get it. You want sugar-coated pats on the back? Go somewhere else.
Just like the last three reviews, Dr. Hansen is rude! I saw this doctor for a number of years and then she changed. She's not the same doctor she use to be. If a doctor becomes non-caring and doubting my symptoms and problems, they do Not deserve a penny from my pocket book. She definitely should be required to Retire!
I went to see Dr Hansen to try to establish a new Doctor. She came in and started doubting me instantly when I explained my previous diagnosesis (which could have been proven had she gotten the records). Then when I explained that I had filed for Social Security disability, she told me that what I have is NOT a disabling disease. (My lawyer and their whole firm seem to think so) I told her I wasn't able to work and she asked what I did. I told her I am taking college classes online - and she said "well, if you're "disabled" aren't you just wasting your time with that degree?" I was horrified. I could barely manage to sit through the rest of the appointment. I never went back to see her! RIDICULOUS! Don't know how this woman even has a license to practice medicine!
