“She was accessible, easy to talk to, and very informative.”
“She seemed to know what she was doing.”
“I was referred to this office for my 3 year old son to get his hearing checked related to speech delays. He was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and has a very difficult time in new and unpredictable settings. I called ahead to make sure the office was equipped to handle his specific special needs. I was told that the testing could be modified for him and that if it didn't work out, a referral could be initiated to a facility that would better suit his needs. Dr. Jan Hankerson's office is not at all accommodating to children of any age. It's a very sterile and clinical environment. She did let him play in the testing room for a little bit while she questioned me, but he was not allowed to touch anything. She then told me to hold him on my lap in the small locked testing chamber and have him look straight ahead while she sat outside the room looking in on us through a small window. She triggered two separate toys and lights that would go off at unpredictable times to create noise and lights. My son became very distressed and began to have a compete meltdown and was obviously scared. She looked in on us with no emotion on her face and showed no sign of stopping the testing despite how distressed and scared my son became. He was sweating, kicking and screaming while she continued. I finally stopped the test myself. She had no compassion and was extremely mechanical and emotionless in how she interacted with both of us. My son continued to scream even after the testing and all she did was glare at him. I left the facility and called her back to ask why she continued to test despite how stressed my son had become. She said she was sorry and that she was going to eventually stop testing. I asked if she had worked with toddlers on the Spectrum before and she said she had friends with ASD children, which is obviously not the same as working with children in a clinical setting. This facility is not equipped to accommodate children or any child with special needs. She did apologize, but I had to pay a copay for services that were inadequate and a waste of mine and my son's time. I recommended she take some training on how to work with children on the Spectrum for which she replied with a thank you.”
“She was attentive, and answered all of my questions and then some. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a hearing test. ”
