Dr. Hannah saved me I was in such pain and he took excellent care in explaining everything right down to the shot in my right knee. Great experience

Dr. Hannah is by far the best ortho I've ever been to. A visit to that office is an all around good experience .

Dr. Hannah is outstanding. I've seen him twice now (separated by 2 years). he remembered me and provided excellent care. He answered all of my questions and proactively addressed many issues. Would recommend him to anyone needing a sports doc!
Patient | December 12, 2016

Dr. Hannah was very caring.
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.

The Physician explained in detail where I was experiencing the most pain/problems, and what could be done to alleviate and treat the symptoms.
Patient | October 17, 2016

My family and I have all seen Dr Hannah, and would highly recommend him.
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

Dr. Hannah is top notch. He is personable and understanding. He spends as much time with me as I want and is never rushed! I have recommended him to friends and family!

I had seen Dr. Hannah several years ago with an orthopedic injury. He was conscientious about my injury as he was during this office visit for a different. Dr. Hannah is sensitive and respectful to the patient.
Patient | June 15, 2016

I have referred many friends and family members to Dr. Hannah, and they have all been pleased. He is excellent.
Patient | May 31, 2016

Dr Hannah is the embodiment of what you would want in a physician. He can scale his conversation and questions up or down depending on your needs and concerns. He relies minimally on sitting in front of a computer and is very 'present' for you. Given his expertise and diagnostic skills, I'm always amazed I can get into see him so quickly but he is the best. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Patient | May 28, 2016

Dr. Hannah spent a an appropriate amount of time with me and was very easy to talk with. I really felt that he listened and welcomed my questions. He did an excellent job in explaining the hows and whys of my broken foot and went over the x-rays with me so I could understand exactly where the break is.
Patient | May 12, 2016

Easy to talk to, good information, care to answer questions in enough detail, I definitely would return to this provider if I need to. I would also be glad to recommend him.

Patient | March 17, 2016

the right amount of information, great bedside manner, knowledgeable- exactly what I want in a provider
Patient | March 15, 2016

Dr. Hannah seems to be an excellent doctor. My concern is that I was never contacted with my MRI results. The technichian told me the results would take 24 hours. After 3 days I sent a message via MyHealth (with indicates that my message was read that day). It is now 5 days later and I have not heard about the results from the doctor or his office or a courtesy reply to my inquiry.
Patient | March 7, 2016

Dr. Hannah listened to my concerns regarding my knee and provided great explanations as to what potentials issues could be. He provided a thorough explanation of next steps and what treatment options were available. This was my first experience with Vanderbilt Ortho and I feel Dr. Hannah is an excellent provider.
Patient | February 29, 2016

Not a particularly proactive approach to diagnosis of elbow. Shoulder discussion and diagnosis were reasonable discussion on elbow issue was limited. I felt that the issue probably required more examination however that was not addressed fully
Patient | February 2, 2016

I recommended Dr. Hannah to my husband and he has an appointment tomorrow.
Patient | February 2, 2016

I couldn't have asked for more - his explanations were clear, and never patronizing, a problem w/aging patients -
Patient | January 22, 2016

Always an excellent experience with Dr. Hannah & staff.
Patient | January 19, 2016

I thought he could be more friendly and personable.
Patient | January 18, 2016

I first saw Dr. Hannah over ten years ago and selected him again when my other knee started hurting. I received excellent care then and now.
Patient | January 13, 2016

I have seen a lot of doctors for knee issues in the past and Dr. Hannah was by far the best. He took so much time to explain what was going on, answer my questions, and learn about my history. He was also very helpful in explaining what I should look for,
Patient | January 12, 2016
