Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Absolute sharp contrast from a HORRIBLE experience I had with another doctors office. Appointments were made FAST, staff exemplified the epitome of professionalism and accommodation to their patients. The check- in process for a first time patient took as long (if not shorter) as ordering a meal at a fast food joint. And then, the provider saw me. You really feel like you matter in this office with how you are treated by staff. The provider listened to all my concerns, and definitely went the full 9 yards when it came to my chief complaints and concerns and getting them addressed. It was the easiest appointment I've ever had. I left the office feeling like there was not one thing to address because everything was expeditiously taken care of. I'm so glad I'm with this doctor's practice.

Dr Christian, PA Whiteley, and his office staff are professional and compassionate. The amount of quality time he spends with each patient answering questions to make sure you understand is exceptional. I was very fortunate to find Dr Christian when I moved here from Palm Desert..He truly cares about his patients.Blessed.

Minimal waiting time, very nice staff. Attentive providers. I see both Dr. Christian and PA Whiteley. They both listen to all my concerns and are very informative. They also are great with calming my anxiety. The staff is very nice and can usually get you in next day or even same day appointments. Highly recommend this office.

Literally just told me to go to the ER for something he called "minor". He refused to treat my issue even when imaging supported the diagnosis.

Dr. Christian is a great doctor. His staff is very professional and friendly. Dr. Christian takes the time to answer all of your questions and explains himself. He is not like some of these other doctors that seem to busy or in a rush to answer all your needs. I would recommend him.
