If you have not already met Jen, let me introduce you. She is an excellent Nurse Practitioner with an eagerness to help her patients and to provide top-notch care. I have never known a more empathetic, skilled, and interested practitioner. She will go above and beyond the standard of care TO make sure that the patient has gotten her best result, that the issue is resolved, and that the patient is educated on her best plan of care. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Jen over the past two years.
She is one of the top practitioners that trained at Purdue University, earning unequivocal accolades from her professors. When I met her, I found her to be open, honest, kind, and very competent. For those of you that know me well, you know that I am not going to entrust my patients to a provider that does not deliver excellent care. As you know, we deliver quality care and I am so thankful to each and every one of you that has helped to build my practice. I could not have done it without you. Your referral of friends and family has really been an incredible influence in my practice. Thank you!
Ms. Hansen is very interested in all aspects of care, not just prescriptive medicine but also the overall wellness of her patients. She is a strong advocate for her patients and this is a trait that I completely respect her for displaying. All too often medical providers can get lost in the hustle and bustle of the medical problems and ultimately lose sight of the patient. Not so with Ms. Hansen. She is a valuable asset to our practice and I hope to have her here for a long time.
Jen has actually jumped into Functional Medicine with an eagerness that surpasses my medical colleagues! She has embraced the true art of wellness and isolating the dysfunction before the disease. Jen attended the 2012 Applied Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice that was held in the fall of 2012. The information that is taught in this special seminar is having a ripple effect on our community. Thanks to Jen Hansen, our patients are benefitting. I consider Jen an equal when it comes to passion for this profession, interest in finding the best solution, and furthering the outcome of the individual patient by education, compassion, and interest.
She has a very special interest in women’s health, teenagers and young adults, as well as menopausal women and concerns of all age groups. Again, she is an incredible advocate for her patients. There have been many nights that she is the last one to leave! I see her on the phone throughout the day, taking her own calls and calling her patients with their lab results. This is something that I am envious of her for because she does go that extra mile, that extra call back in follow-up, she is the true example of what a practitioner should be! For me, she is what a health care provider should be. She holds us all to a higher standard.
Please consider making your next appointment with Jen. I don’t think you will be disappointed. If you are frustrated with the “same ‘ol, same ‘ol” from other gynecology practices, then you need to schedule with Jen or myself, Dr. Haendiges, to get a thorough evaluation incorporating the best in functional medicine, state of the art gynecology, with a hefty dose of compassion and caring!
To your health,
