      The office staff and nurses are great, helpful and very friendly. I haven't had an appt that takes less than 1 hour minimum. In that hour the Dr spends maybe 2 minute with you. Most times he doesn't even say thank you or good bye before walking out of the room. He just disappears and leaves the nurses to explain and finish.

      I was repeatedly told that my procedure was completely covered by my insurance. Then I was hit with bill after bill to the tune of $650.00. Be sure to get approval from your insurance so that you don't get blindsided like I did. Dr. Christiansen will tell you it's covered whether it is or isn't.

      A doctors office that doesn't look or feel like a doctors office! Everyone very friendly and accommodating. Great location. Glasses and contacts have been working great. I would recommend this clinic.
      Murray, UT |
      I saw 3 people while in the exam room and nobody introduced themselves to me on my first and only visit. I didn't even know who the doctor was until the very end. They made me watch a video instead of explaining anything to me in person. I was the last visit of the day and maybe the staff was tired. Maybe things have changed since my visit but I wouldn't recommend this office.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
