I saw Dr. Christon initially for a sleep study because of my difficulty in breathing. The result of the sleep study was pretty much that I do not have sleep apnea. I recently saw him again on 12/1/16 and his advice to me was "it would be beneficial to exercise a bit more, and to lose a bit of weight". On 12/7/16 I went to River Bend where I spent five days and found I have congestive heart failure. Did he ever consider that as my problem? Apparently not!
