Dr. Christian was my God sent ENT. I was not his patient, but I had a emergency situation with my nose and he allowed me to come into the office. I had to wait a short while, which was understandable. He introduce himself and listen to me explained the horror I have been experiencing for over 6 month continues nose bleeds. He looked in my nostril and gave me the relief I needed to breathe freely. He was compassionate, gentle, and very understandable. I am very grateful to him.
