Excellent experience

Had extreme back surgery eight years ago by Dr Hanks. After eight years, my back is still holding up well. Can't thank this doctor enough.

Find another Doctor

Wait times are horrible every time I have been in to see him. 2 hours the last time I saw him and he blamed his staff for the wait. No follow up after my last test by him or his fellow doctor he referred me to. I tried to schedule another visit using my portal a month ago and no one called back. If you have problems after your surgery chances are he will try to dump you. I've gone a year after my neck surgery and still have problems. Finding another doctor after you've been worked on by someone else is impossible.

Five Stars

Dr Hanks is very conservative and works with you to determine the right solution. He is very caring and takes the time to explain different actions that need to be taken

Bad doctor

Dr. Hanks is the only doctor I've ever seen who did not introduce himself, provide an explanation of the procedure, risks etc. He wasn't going to provide any explanations for follow up until I asked.Then he said he didn't need to see me again but I could go to Phoenix and see Dr. Damper if I wanted to. Practically ran out of the room. I'll never go to him again and certainly won't recommend him to anyone . Terrible excuse for a doctor.

Good Doctor perhaps but incompetent staff

totally incompetent staff, unable to read their own appointment calendar to make proper appointment; illiterate: cannot read and spell patient's name. They do not return multiple phone calls. Useless .
