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 in the process. He promised he would do everything he could to get me feeling better and he's kept that promise. I cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone with diabetes or thyroid disorders.

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 I got nothing. I hope others don't have to go in and hear the worst case scenario before telling you medicine comes before surgery, or that when you react to that it is just your hormones.

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

I would like to say that Dr. Christiansen is one of the rare doctors who is very attentive and sensire. He is very educated and will lean you in the direction that is most satisfactory for you. I actually feel better after visiting him - it feels like I visited a real doctor who is sympathetic, compasioned and actually cares.

He's not current with Endocrine standards. He's to conservative with sub-clinical patients. He's inconsistent in his responses.

He is a doctor I can trust and he explains everything well.
