Philosophy of Medicine

"I feel that open communication is the key to patient success. It is of utmost importance to listen to your patient's concerns before coming to a conclusion on a diagnosis and treatment plan. The diagnosis must be clearly explained in terms the patient can understand with all treatment options laid out so an informed decision can be made. We must respect the patient's choices in managing their care. As providers, we need to work in a team approach, with the patient being the main player and the provider being the coach."

    Dr Brenda Hanson was very helpful and caring and knowledgeable about my condition! I have recommended her to some folks already.

    A big plus: provided information on newly developed surgical techniques that would reduce dependence on pharmaceuticals (a cure versus a long-term treatment)

    Brenda Hanson is a professional at all times. She is so patient, informative, concerned for the well being of her patients. Altru is extremely lucky to have her! I have been a patient under her care starting in 2001. She has always treated me with respect, informed me, taken good care of me. I am so glad to have her as one of my medical providers! Again, I emphasize, Altru is lucky to have her on staff!
