The doctor took 45 seconds out of her busy schedule to explain nothing to me. Her NP was very blunt to the point of rudeness. Hopefully they do not treat all of their patients this way.

I saw her over multiple months and was in so much pain that I had to go somewhere else to emergency room. The most arrogant , uncaring rudest person i have ever met. laughed about my pain, kept scheduling me for surgery but then it was another test after another. I called the director of the facility and she was just as uncaring and rude as Christiano. She is only in it for money and does not give one iota of care to the patients that she sees.

I was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. Dr Christiano was referred to me and I was very impressed with her from the beginning. Diagnosed on a Friday surgery to remove the mass on that Monday. In hospital for a week now home recovering and doing fine. She and her staff that did my surgery i just can’t say thank you enough for doing such a great job and helping me. My family and i are grateful. I consider Dr Christiano to be a very brilliant highly educated surge

Dr. Christiano successfully removed a tumor from my 81 yr old Mother. She's very professional and worked my Mother into her busy schedule after only 4 days notice. She's a hero in our circle of friends and family. God bless her and continue to use her for his glory.

Dr Christiano was amazing. My husband had surgery to remove tumor from pituitary gland. He had the surgery Tuesday and was home Friday. She and her staff were wonderful to us.

I would not recommend this doctor or this facility. The lack of compassion and caring for the patient is glaring. Her nurse is the most unprofessional and the rudest medical provider I have ever encountered. Our health care providers are our choice. I highly suggest you choose another provider. Unless you prefer being ran through the mill like a sheep, just another number.

My first experience with Dr. Christiano was unsuccessful, I was seen for a C6, C7 disc replacement, which left me with a pinched nerve in the right side of my neck. A year and a half of therapy and injections later I was again seen by Dr. Christiano, she scheduled surgery, only five days prior to surgery she had her office manager call me to cancel the surgery. I was told I would need a "significant down payment" before I could proceed with the surgery and "payment arrangements would need to be
