Dr. Christman's Care Philosophy

Dr. Christman practices general medical dermatology including skin cancer detection examinations, the treatment of other common conditions including acne, rashes, warts, and removal of benign cosmetic lesions. She has a special interest in prevention, early detection, management, and patient education of malignant melanoma, atypical moles, nonmelanoma skin cancer, and precancerous actinic keratoses.

After waiting an hour, I finally got to see the doctor. She swoops in and talks a mile a minute. I tried to ask questions and tell her about my concerns but it was hard to get a word in edgewise. She dismissed one of my concerns, prescribes a medicine for the second concern that I told her I had taken before and didn't work, and completely ignored my third concern. A waste of money and time. I regret ever making the appointment.

I am very surprised by a few negative reviews online for Dr. Abernathy Christman. Her patient care is flawless. There is a woman in the front office at her practice who is very sour-tempered and I think that single individual is damaging her online reviews, which is a shame. Dr. Christman is an extremely attentive and gifted dermatologist, and the nurse who attended to my care with her was wonderful. I wouldn't go anywhere else and highly recommend her, personally.

Do not expect to get copies of your medical records without paying an unreasonable fee and then getting pages of phone messages, forms that you filled out, a prescription list that you provided them, and pages of useless diagrams. Of the 13 pages they charged me for, only 3 were pertinent medical records. So sad Dr. Christman chose to lose a patient for $13.75!

I have been seeing Dr. Christmas for over 7 years. She has always been professional and thorough in her exams. She looks out for my best interest and has also been extremely patient with my children and understanding of their concerns when she has had to do a procedure on them. Appointments have been easy to make and wait time is minimal. Highly recommend!

DO NOT BRING YOUR SMALL CHILDREN HERE! Dr. Christman has zero bedside manners, criticized my toddler for drawing on the table paper liner using a pen one of the nurses gave him to distract him while we discussed his condition- last time I checked, you claim to be a certified pediatric dermatologist??! Dr. Christman was cold, had zero interest in getting to know my son (she yelled at the nurse about this pen right in front of me!), and was completely apathetic to our concerns.

Her staff is unprofessional with no dr office etiquette. They have been stuff food in their mouths all 3 times I had appointments. Don't do follow up reminders on certain appointments but will charge you if you miss one. Dr. Christmas is using your insurance company for her payroll company refusing to even address another issue that wasn't stated while making the appointment, without making another appointment. Offered me a refill on a Cree that was helping but when I ran out 1 1/2 months later.
