Was up there for shots in my back and first off she did this without getting x-rays to see if there was an other issues. When I got there and my appointment was for 9am they told me to get there 15 minutes earlier, I did and the doctor didn't show up until 10:15 so I was pretty hot by then. The staff is not friendly and take forever to see you. Took them 4 months to get my records to another doctor, until I told them I was on my way up to get them then they faxed them. Umm.

When we are hurting we all want a little extra care. In my experience, after my initial consultation with Dr. Christopher, her staff more that capably handled my concerns. Her nurse practitioner is incredibly well versed about pain management and I felt completely comfortable discussing my needs with her. I would rather have my doctor available for my procedure than taking time from that schedule to hold the hand of all of her patients thus reducing the time she can actually be managing pain.
The only person that listened and cared was the office manager, Lisa. She was always very kind and caring. I wish my doctor cared even have as much.
