Don't waste your time. In my 60 years this was the worse experience ever. In six month's I was able to talk to him for ten minutes. The only thing you get out of his P.A. is come back in three months. I wouldn't take my worst enemy or my dog there. Tim Johnson Mount Sterling Ky

Dr. Christiansen really gave me a new lease on life when he performed my total knee replacement. I am now able to do so many things I love to do but thought were lost to me.

Dr. Christianson is an excellent doctor that explains medical issues in very understandable terms...He has an excellent bedside manner and seems to be genuinely interested in the well being of his patients...He replaced my left hip 5 years ago and I have had no problems associated with that surgery...

I have a bad airway and he took that into consideration and made sure he was very carrful with the problem and done a great job. As the partial knee replacement I think he is the very best so there is no point in looking any further. When the best is here. I had home therapy through them and he was better then going to get out and going anywhere for therapy if you live in pulaski county. It's through VNA and Steven done mine. My whole from start to finish was wonderful. I would recommend him and
