Dr. Christie is kind, efficient and takes time to explain the results of my blood test and to reassure me that I didn't have any blood cancers. Obviously I was greatly relieved. This medical office is the most efficient practice I have ever visited. The wait time between checking in and getting the blood test and seeing Dr. Christie is never more than 15-20 minutes. A modern miracle these days. I would highly recommend Dr. Christie and this facility without reservation.

Dr. Christie met with me to go over the options I had following my oral cancer surgery. He explained the pathology report in detail and why radiation would be my best option. I found him very caring and I felt he wanted the best outcome for me. He referred me to a radiation oncologist and I will start radiation in March. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Christie has been treating me locally in Arlington for a more rare form of lymphoma for which I am also working with others. He has been unfailingly professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. In addition to communicating well with me, he has been great in consulting with the other specialists working on my case to devise and implement the right treatment plan for me.

Dr. Christie is clearly very knowledgeable. He correctly diagnosed my cancer issue and prescribed the treatment that resolved my illness almost ten years ago. I have checked in with him every year since I returned from abroad, and he has always been helpful and easy to communicate with. I would recommend him very highly to anyone who thinks he or she may have a cancer issue.

I have been a patient with Dr, Christie since 2014 for multiple myeloma.He has been terrific with his medication routines as well as explaining how my cancer is progressing or fading in terms I can easily understand - he is patient and never gives me less time than I feel is necessary. He was the driving force with setting up my stem cell transplant at the Emily Curric Cancer Cener at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. I firmly believe I can not be in better caring hands than his
