“On January 16th our daughter Shelly, was transferred from BCH to AMH for emergency surgery. She had a bowel perforation and was becoming septic. Dr. Hanisee took charge of the situation and saved our daughters life. There was so much she did for us and our daughter. All I can say is that we trusted her completely and her knowledge, compassion and willing to ask other physicians for guidance is what saved our daughter and made us realize that we were in the right place. Our daughter was very critical at one point and we truly trusted Dr. Hanisee and her co-workers to keep our daughter alive. We will always be grateful to her and everyone who took care of Shelly.”

—A patient’s family member

“These two phenomenal physicians have been a blessing to our family. My niece recently underwent what was supposed to be a simple surgery. Things quickly took a turn for the worse, which lead to the family in fear for this young ladies life. After several days on a vent and a forty- day hospital stay she was stable enough to go home. During this time Dr. Hainsee and Dr. Velez ALWAYS made a point to make every encounter personal. Yes, while in two different facilities these two physicians remained in great contact (even afterhours if necessary) to provide my niece with exceptional care. These two ladies have made a lasting impression on our family that will forever be cherished.”

“On top of being a fantastic surgeon, Dr. Hanisee has built an outstanding Bariatric Program for Archbold in just one year. She has put in a lot of time, hard work, and dedication to make the program a success. She truly cares about her patients and wants them to be successful. She will pick up the phone and call a patient individually to check on them. She has provided extra support to her patients by hosting bariatric support groups and operating a closed bariatric Facebook page. She is a joy to work with and is very down to earth and approachable. I am so glad that she chose to practice in Thomasville, and we are lucky to have her on our team!”

“I love working with Dr. Hanisee because she makes sure that people know she appreciates their work. Not an afternoon goes by that she doesn't take time to thank me on my way out the door. It’s not a large gesture, but it means so much. That’s not something you find everywhere.”

-A staff member

“Dr. Hanisee -- Dr. Hanisee is a loving bundle of joy. She can brighten any room that she enters and she truly wants to see her patients succeed. I had a gastric sleeve done by Dr. Hanisee (one of my first major surgeries ever) and she was there every step of the way. She checked in on me over five times throughout the day of surgery just to make sure I was doing ok. “
