Dr. Christensen was great! My gallbladder was full of stones and he gave me a few options, told me what he thought was best and I had my gallbladder removed. He is super professional and laid back, which for me was great. When doctors seem stressed, then I feel stressed. He put me at ease and walked me through everything step by step. I would definitely recommend him.

My wife tried to get in for surgery and the office staff was so rude and didn't call me back for days. Then the doctor finally came in and looked like he just plowed a field and was all dirty and acted very uncareing to us. I won't be going back again!
I am sorry that your expectations were not met. As I don't know exactly who you might be, I can't comment on the details of your experience. My staff strives to treat every patient with kindness, courtesy, and empathy. We were saddened that anyone felt we were "rude" and "uncaring". If I came in dressed in casual clothes then most likely I made special trip into the office to see you on an emergent basis and would ask for some consideration in this matter.

Dr. Christensen were excellent. He treated my condition with the urgency needed for the diagnosis of Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
