What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Christy, MD
Reply
I can't brag enough. Dr. Christy was very informative before and after my surgery. Made me feel very comfortable, when I was scared out of my mind. He showed genuine concern for my feelings of fright and for my progress of recovery.

Dr Christy and his staff were very friendly, always willing to explain things so you could understand. They were all very understanding with family and it was the very best experience for myself and family after 12 days in the hospital. We would recommend him to anyone.
