Review for Dr. James

Dr Christensen is very thorough and answered all my questions and concerns. He walked through any possibilities for my pain to try to come up with a conclusion. He is an AMAZING Dr.

Cindy Graves Jul 02 2022

Review for Dr. Christensen

Misdiagnosed me. Asked questions and then mockingly answered for me. Gave me the wrong medications for the problem. Now I may lose hearing in that ear
