He has been treating me for back pain and he has done a great job. He took every every step to make sure I went through every treatment possible before recommending surgery.

Review for Dr. Christmas

I am so impressed with Dr. Christmas from the first time I met him. He took time to listen and then told me what we should do. He did a colonoscopy and an endoscope so well that when I woke up, I didn't even feel like I had had those procedures. Amazing! A special doctor for sure!
