What People Say About Dr. Gregory Christiansen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Christiansen is extremely thorough, and took time to truly listen. Never felt rushed during appts.. Wonderful bedside manner. Very professional. Trying to forgo/postpone rotator cuff surgery, after seeing other shoulder specialist, I saw Dr. Christiansen for 2nd opinion. Instead of wanting to jump into rotator repair surgery, he performed a closed manipulation under anesthesia for my shoulder (that became frozen), with great success. Time will tell if I need surgery in future. 99% mobility!
