in Orlando, FL |
After two different hand/ wrist issues over two years or so that Dr. Christensen helped with, I can say without reservation that he actually treats the patient and the injury and does so with empathy and professionalism. He is concerned about his patients and is very knowledgeable about injuries, conditions, and treatments and is willing to discuss options to meet the patient's needs. Further, his Coordinator, Kim Jessee, continues his compassion during check out ensuring patient satisfaction!

Both hands have been riddled with Dupuytren over 35 years. I had surgical operations back then which were painful & required 6 months of rehab. Last year Al preformed Needle Fasciotony on my right hand fingers & Opended the Web with great success & minimual pain. Recently I opted for xiaflex injection & manipulation for finger on my right hand. Again great success. Al is a master surgeon, friend & hero with a great support team. I highly recommend Alan Christensen! Bob Lasek
