Patient Comments (3)
Knoxville, TN |
Dr Crist was far more interested in shooting the breeze than in addressing healthcare concerns during office visits. I don't really know if he's a good doctor or not in terms of his medical knowledge, he never explained anything to me in office or in the hospital. The most egregious problem from my perspective was that I could tell that he had led the staff in making fun of me while I was under anesthesia. I could hear them laughing in the next room while they thought I was still under.

Saw Dr Crist for a routine colonastomy. Spent time with me. answered all my questions. Easy going. Office very good. Had problem getting the discount on the purge medicine. They called pharmacy and got it straightened out. Had procedure done at Park West. They were super. PS Picked Dr Crist using infoemation/reviews from this site.
