My husband has Alzheimer's, so I have to do all the paperwork for him. I had forgotten to bring his wallet with his insurance card and picture ID. The registration staff were very understanding, and did not make a big issue of it at all, which I appreciated.

Dr. Hanka had a well thought out care plan for both my husband and myself, and carefully answered any questions I had.

Had a letter from another doctor that had been sent to the office. Nurse took the time to find the letter and make sure that Dr. Hanka had seen it before he came in to see us.

being myself medically educated, I was positively surprised that Dr. Hanka was knowledgeable in details or issues I raised, and we discussed, that reached well beyond a typical routine annual checkup with your PCP.
