Dr. Christiansen was wonderful to my husband during his ordeal with his cancer. Rick was a very stubborn person, but Dr. Christiansen got through to him. Not only was he wonderful with Rick he took time to talk to me not only about what was going to happen in the future , he also talked about other things to get my mind off things that was happening. On the day my husband was slipping away he was at my front door. WONDERFUL DR AND EVEN BETTER PERSON. THANK YOU DR. FOR EVERYTHING. MATA TASSIC

I been seeing Dr. Steven Newman for 10 years and he moved to Florida , I asked him for a recommendation and he said Dr Christiansen and A Dr. at his office in Chicago. And I asked him if I could use him for a second opinion and he gave me his info in Florida and said yes. So if Dr. Newman likes him I like him.
