in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Christie was highly recommended by a friend of mine and also a previous doctor that I had seen for the same condition. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure for hip replacement surgery. The staff at SJRI was also very accommodating and professional.

I have been a patient of Dr Christie's or 23 years. I have had excellent care. I truly believe Dr. Christie knowledge and gift has allowed me to remain active and walking. Dr. Christie ensures his patients receive excellent care in every aspect of a joint replacement.
in Brownsville, TN |
Appointment was more than expected even though I had heard great things about Dr. Christie. He showed genuine concern and was obviously concerned about my problem and health. I am confident of his findings and did not hesitate in planning future surgery. High class and a true gentleman.

Dr. Christie and his staff are very kind and considerate...They even take time to listen when you have a problem....
in Nashville, TN |
Following a botched-up TKR done by a different group, I finally was referred to Dr. Christie (Orthopedic surgeon #5) for revision surgery. There are no words in my vocabulary to express how much Dr. Christie helped me and restored my faith in the medical field. He is the very best and I shall always appreciate that he actually believed me and went to work to fix the problem. I am losing the fear of falling that plagued my life for three years!
in Lebanon, TN |
I had knee surgery April 1, 2016 with Dr. Christie. He is great. Took time to talk to me before and after surgery. Very good about explaining everything to me and answered all my questions.
in Sparta, TN |
Excellent experience with Dr. Christie. He explained why I was having the problems I was having and what needed to be done, which was a complete knee replacement. Dr. Christie was compassionate and had a very good bedside manner, which is important to me. Come thru the surgery and PT with flying colors....a complete different experience than I had with my hip replacement at another hospital and dr. SJRI is the only place I would go for any orthopedic surgery needed.
