I rarely visit doctors, and this excepted case, I was able to meet with Dr. Christiansen. In these rare occasions I have found some of these medical professionals in a rush to get you in-and-out ASAP, and some seem disassociated with our reasons for being there. Dr. Christiansen is the rare exception of both a gentleman, and one who seems to actually care about his patient. He was caring, thorough, humorous at times, and simply made me feel like I was his patient and he cared about my being.
