    He had Saturday appointments. He was very caring and did not rush through our appointment. He spent the time needed to get to the bottom of my allergies.

    My PCP referred me to Dr. Christensen for a very concerning problem I have. It took me 4 months to get this appointment with Dr. Christensen at his Cathedral Rock location. After two full hours of waiting, I was advised that the doctor had students, and was running VERY behind. Also, that she was NOT sure when he would get to me? That if I could NOT wait to see the doctor, I could leave! WOW! I realize the doctor's time is more important than mine, but HOW INCONSIDERATE that was!

    He took the time to explain why I have the symptoms that I have and what is the best course of treatment. I was doing some of the things already and he indicated that there are a couple of additional things that could help. He suggested lower cost medicine (same formula).

    I went to Dr. Christensen for 7 years for allergy shots but was getting worse. I begged him to help me. All he said was "Keep getting the allergy shots." I finally went to 2 other allergy specialists who told me that I don't have allergies, that I have vasomotor rhinitis, allergy shots don't help. I have very weak lungs due to having polio. Dr. C once saw me after I had pneumonia and didn't even listen to my lungs. Said to med stud. "Her lung function is horrible!" then walked out the door

    Dr. Christensen has been wonderful with my daughter. He has been treating her asthma for nearly 4 years now and she loves him and so do my husband and I.

    I have been referred to him twice now. The first time my referral was cancelled by his office because I didn't schedule soon enough. I tried scheduling 4 times, but they couldn't find me in their system until it was too late supposedly. The second time I was referred, the doctor cancelled the referral because he looked at the tests and said he didn't need to talk to me. The tests didn't even test for what I wanted to talk to him about, but his office didn't listen to me. Not helpful at all.
