Dr. Hanks was so personal, taking the time to really listen to me. He didn't rush me and showed genuine concern over my worries and what I want. He took the time to go over my x-rays with me, seeing that I wanted to know the medical details for understanding and decision making. His assistant, Socorro, was also wonderful. She...

Dale A., Tucson

I’ve had surgery with both Dr. Hanks and Dr. Prickett. They are very professional and caring doctors; I wouldn't go anywhere else. They explain every detail of the surgery and what to expect. Dr. Hanks preformed spine surgery and I did not even use pain pills after the surgery. The improvement is amazing. Dr. Prickett fixed my shoulder after I...
