Awesome Doctor
in Talbott |
I've had a bone surgery on my left wrist in November of 2016 and Dr. Christopher released a trapped nerve on my right elbow in July of 2017. My life had changed a lot dealing with these problems but with the excellent care and great surgical skill of Dr. Christopher and his team I am getting my life back even better than before. I can even write better than I have in over a year! I can't express how grateful I am to all of them for treating me with so much respect. Thank you so much!

Great Dr. Replaced one knee and repaired one that he did not initially replace . stayed with me from start to almost finish. Sometimes single minded in moving ahead. Sometimes unconcerned about problems related to what he is working on, still would not trade him for any other doctor. I would recommend him to anyone with orthopedic problems.

Dr. Christopher has looked after my entire family for many years! He has operated on my hand and my wrist at two different times, and I have always had great success with him as our doctor! As a patient, I have followed him from Healthstar physicians to this new practice and he's the only orthopaedic doctor I will see!
