Patient Comments (8)

I would not recommend this doctor. He's really good at keeping his patients very sick and is hesitantly involved in responding to inquiries. He is also an advocate for toying with medication to include over-dosing at times as he's not familiar with conversions, based on my experience.

Dr. Christiansen made me feel like the only person in the room and that he truly, truly CARED about me and my concerns (which I did not feel prior to seeing him regarding my issues). Probably the best dr I have seen to this day. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Christiansen is AMAZING. I have been in his care for 6 months and can confidently say he is the best doctor I've ever had. His approach is always thorough and consistent. He will make you a priority if urgent. Dr. Christiansen diagnosed my T1 diabetes and Graves disease and was very empathetic...more

Left in tears as he lacked any compassion or kindness. This made a lab result so much scarier and upsetting. He did not offer any information but expected me to have googled everything so he could refute it. As i decided I didn't want to go down that wormhole I didn't know what questions to ask so...more

Dr Christiansen has always given me exceptional advice and treatment and I have always been a liver disease patient, making treatments more challenging.
