About Me

I believe it is my job to provide individualized care and also to advocate and coordinate the care of my patients as they navigate an increasingly complex healthcare system.

I provide care for patients of all ages. I am board certified in pediatrics and internal medicine. I’m particularly interested in caring for patients with chronic childhood illness as they transition to adulthood. I believe these patients deserve physicians who understand their diseases and will work with them to overcome the challenges associated with becoming an adult with an illness that affects their life.

Working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center allows me to pursue my dream of providing excellent patient care. It allows me to teach medical students and residents the skills to become capable and compassionate physicians. And it allows me to develop new methods to care for patients with pediatric illness as they transition to adult-based care.

    Primary care doctor treats his autistic patients with respect and accommodates their needs during the exam. He has a lot of patience with dealing with high anxiety clients. He is very understanding when my autistic son requests his paperwork, so he can transition out of the appointment.

    Several years ago when the doc we had been seeing for several decades retired, we were devastated, thinking we could never find a new doc, that would "measure up." Then we met Dr. Hanks. We might even be MORE satisfied with him! Excellent in every way, and especially that he really LISTENS and knows us as people - not just patients.

    Dr. Hanks is an outstanding physician! The care & compassion he showed when I had COVID made a big difference to me. I'll forever be appreciative for him getting the "6 AM" IV infusion. Please pass my deep appreciation to the entire team in the practice. I'm always treated like I'm their only patient.
