I have been seeing him for almost 7 years, and I feel very lucky to have found him. Of course, I'm one of the few types of people that want to hug the "messenger" for actually caring about me as a person. If you are really ready to take control of your life and get healthy, I would not reccommend anyone other than Dr. Christensen. I welcome his knowledge and opinions with open arms! Thank you Dr. C! :)

Dr. Christensen is the best Dr. That has ever treated me in my life. Going on four years now and I have 2 kids a husband, a house, and a career. When we first met i had nothing and was still trying to stay sober. I haven't relapsed and he has never made me feel like he doesn't care. If you make an effort in your recovery he will be there for you.

Terrible doctor will definitely stop anyone possibly from being subjected to his careless attitude rudeness and lack of compassion. Nothing but a horrible experience from start to finish. Long wait times 3-4 hours past appointment. When expressing how unhappy we were with his care he refused to fill out fmla paperwork and told us to leave. Never came to check on me or my baby after I delivered. Not exactly sure what the point was of seeing him each apt. He spent 2 mins in the room each appt.

Dr. Christensen is an amazing doctor. He literally gave me my life back by helping with my pain management. He is always honest, thorough and comprehensive with his assessments. He is kind, professional, sympathetic, thoughtful, and caring and has the best wife and dog in the world. :) Anyone who has a negative review to offer on him and his practice does so because they are going to him for the wrong reasons. I would follow this man to the ends of the earth in order to have him as my doctor.

I've been seeing Dr. Christensen a number of years now. He's always very professional and courteous. He's also been very helpful when working around insurance issues. I wouldn't want to see any other Doctor.

I found him to be very full of him self. He refused to treat me without explanation. Simply gave me 2 letters to hospitals that (according to the letters) and upon further searching, found he has been banned from further practice at these hospitals per administration. St. John's&St.Mary's. Further, though the Internet may say so he is not a practicing pain management specialist nor does he treat for so. A little research goes a long way. Do your homework before getting wasting time and money.
