What People Say About Dr. Christine Mulligan, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Mulligan has been my primary care doctor for the last 6 or so years. A year ago, I moved much further away, but still drive in to see her because she's that good. I am able to tell Dr Mulligan a lot of things about my medical, sexual, social, and substance history, and not once have I felt uncomfortable or judged. Instead, Dr Mulligan takes a harm reduction route, with discussions about things like diet, exercise, safe sex, etc. Emphasis on discussion, because I never feel like I'm being talked at, but rather, than I'm part of a conversation. That's what keeps me coming back. I recently had to get copies of all of my annual physicals notes to provide to my insurance. The notes she keeps are detailed. She has a huddle just before seeing her patients where she goes over who they are and what they've talked about before (I saw this on my own medical records in the huddle notes), then updates new notes with what's going on. This level of familiarity is really fantastic to have.

Dr. Mulligan is an excellent physician. She is caring, thorough, intelligent, compassionate, very informative and attentive. She is polite and talks about all aspects of health, in a nice manner. She is very respectful of patients’ privacy. One of my immediate family members, with the same last name & info, had Dr. Mulligan and she never ever mentioned the person, even when I’ve stated my family history. My family member and I found out we had the same PCP when one of us said that we had an appointment with Dr. Mulligan. She really respects her patients 100%. Dr. Mulligan remembers medical information & she will type it in the computer for next time. She’s always been respectful to me and is down to earth. I had Dr. Mulligan as my Primary Care Doctor for over 8 years, but, unfortunately, my insurance changed. Once my insurance is changed or accepted at her office I will go back!

Doctor Mulligan is the best doctor I've ever come across. She takes the time to get to know her patients to better assess what we need. She encourages us to ask questions and provides us with plenty of information. The office staff has always been helpful and courteous. I used to spend a lot of time out of the country and Doctor Mulligan helped me from afar on various occasions. I recently moved and had to give her up as my primary care. I never though changing doctors would upset me so much!

Dr Mulligan is by far the best Dr I've ever had in my adult life. I feel confident that I can tell her all the necessary details of my life. She never judges me, she just helps tailor my treatment plans to something that suits my needs. I just took a different job, and the first thing I did was make sure that my new insurance plan still allowed Dr Mulligan to be my primary care physician. I feel like my life is better for having her care for any needs that may come up.

I'm amazed at how much Dr. Mulligan remembers when I normally only see her once every year or two. I am sure she reviews her files before appointments, but it's nice to know she is familiar with my issues going into an appointment. She takes her time during appointments and answers my questions thoroughly. The only negative thing I can think of is that follow ups on tests are usually just her writing on a test report mailed to me. This may just be because the tests come back with no issues.

Arrogance personified with a massive touch of condesention added for good measure. Actually yawned three seconds into an answer I was giving her and neither covered her mouth nor apologized. Classy. Also, at 61 I don't need to be lectured to by a 3rd year doc. Your family may accept that, but I won't. TRUST ME...
