I came to Dr. Christensen with a swelling sensation in my throat, he diagnosed me with hashimotos and the swelling and itchiness continued, I do not feel that he took all the needed steps to figure out what was really causing this sensation, he told me that I should have my thyroid removed, I trusted him and I went through with the surgery which I highly regret. It was unneeded, I am now being treated for allergies which was the main cause of the swelling in my throat by a different ENT.
