Patient | November 17, 2016

Dr. Hannah really did understand what I'm going through with this knee and I was thankful he offered me some other options if what he is doing now does not work and he wants me to return in 1month not 6 so we can watch and see what happens. He was very concern and that made a lot of my anxiety go away.

Patient | October 3, 2016

Dr. Hannah is a great physician. he is a throw back in that he actually looks at you wile talking with you. Even though I had not seen him in a long time (technically a new visit again), he remembered me. He was very thoughtful about my injury, he took time to review my XRay with me and gave me a good plan. It is helpful when the MD/NP/PA actually enagages rather than just typing at computer. More providers should try and practice like Dr Hannah.
Patient | October 3, 2016

Really liked Dr. Hannah!
Patient | September 27, 2016

A good experience.
Patient | September 13, 2016

Dr. Hannah is an absolute gem. How I wish that all doctors had his gentle and kind spirit. When I made my appointment and found out that I would see him, I was thrilled because I had seen him once before and knew that I would be well taken care of. I have so much confidence in him, his ability, and knowledge. He is an extraordinary person and doctor. Vanderbilt and his patients are so fortunate to have him.
Patient | September 12, 2016
