Dr. Christian (Kris) Obah, M.D. is uncommonly kind, decent, genuine, & cares that his patients receive the best care he can provide. Dr. Obah answers questions and concerns. He actually listens to what I'm saying (a rarity among today's MDs). I've been his patient for 9 years, following him when he completed a fellowship at U of U. I'm an RN--I trust Obah professionally. I recommend him to anyone suffering from severe pain (temporary or chronic).

Worst experience of my life. I would never recommend this man who calls himself a Dr. to anyone. He put me in more physical pain than I have ever had... I have 5 kids. Now when I have to go in for a procedure, I have to be put under sedation because of what the man did to me. He dug and dug and DUG, then said I would hear a small pop.... He couldn't do it, and finally gave up. How on earth did he pass through the U of U internship???

Scheduling is terrible. You won't get a phone call back, ever. You will show up for a procedure to be told they haven't requested authorization by your insurance.

From the time that I arrived in his office until I left was 2 1/2 hours. Most of my time was spent in the exam room. I was told that Dr. Obah was out. I was to see his assistant. I went to the desk twice to ask when will be seen. I was told that she had one patient ahead of me. The nurse came into my room twice. I asked the nurse how much longer? She said that there was one patient ahead of me. Dr Obah's assistant came in. I told her that this behavior was unacceptabl. No reccomendatio

My husband's been suffering with, almost, unbearable back pain for the last year now. An MRI was done where he learned he had two herniated disks, and one bulging. He was put on a 6 week waiting list to see Dr. Obah for cortisone shots to help with the pain. When his appointment came he waiting two and a half hours to see Dr. Obah. Who then insisted that his pain was nothing more than an injury that would heal itself over time.
