    I don't think the media should publish accused people of sexual acts or any other acts until they are proven guilty. All the publicity towards to accused ruiens there career by just be accused. My mom has had Dr. Hanson for 15 years and never had any inapproriate situations. Why would he do this now after being a Dr. for over 20 years. I hope when proven inoccent the accuser faces some penalty.

    I know and worked with Dick Hansen for years.  I find these allegations very difficult to believe.  It rings of a set up to me.  I have never observed any inappropriate behavior, and have observed him be very competent and professional.  I don’t believe these allegations and am very saddened that he is not currently practicing due to this incident.
