Dr. Hagen was wonderful. I left understanding my medical issues. She answered all of my questions. She helped me form a great plan to help me 'move' forward to regain my mobility after multiple pelvic fractures. I left confident that I was in excellent hands. For the first time in weeks since my accident, I felt hopeful. She radiated a positivity that was Infectious!
