He saved my dad's life in 2005. Dad was in ICU for 30 days in a medical induced coma. He was always there for us to answer our questions. My dad is still alive thanks to dad being such a strong man and Dr. Christenson's knowledge and care. I have also been seeing him for the last five years and feel like I am well taken care of.
