Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Christiansen is either insecure in the care he provides or over-extended and therefore minimizes patient concerns. Rather than listening, asking questions, and finding out what is going on, he will tell you what is going on, and he usually considers it no big deal. If your kid has a three-day temper tantrum after a hair cut, that's just normal adolescent irritability, your family falling apart, all eh ok, here are some meds. The office is beyond disorganized, but most of the staff are trying to be helpful, but the disorganization in the office interferes with them doing their best.

I've never had an appointment start on time with him. His staff is rude and unprofessional. The office is dingy, overcrowded, and generally kinda gross and uncomfortable. He'll write your script but that's about it.

Dr. Christiansen is nice but extremely unresponsive and the staff is absolutely horrible. I have to call and email for weeks to get refills. When my son who is his patient was in crisis he would not return calls. He has no real concern for patients just writes prescriptions. See someone else and avoid all doctors in this practice

Dr. Christiansen is a decent enough doctor, but the incompetence of his staff is deplorable. Several times they've canceled appointments without notifying me, so that I had to miss work for no reason. They also repeatedly refill prescriptions incorrectly and incredibly slowly. In spite of repeated complaints, these errors keep happening.

He was friendly and understanding, and gave great tips and advice on how to deal with anxiety. I would have liked to continue seeing him. But unfortunately, his absentmindedness and the incompetent office he works for is my reason for the low review.

Dr. Christiansen is a good doctor, however, it is hard to get in contact with him to reschedule appointments or for emergencies.

Dr. Christiansen seems very knowledgeable about psychiatric medications and drug interactions, but I didn't feel he was able to address my issues well. I had difficulty expressing my concerns to him as he would listen but not provide much (if any) interaction or feedback. That makes it hard to understand what more he does or doesn't need to know. I wound up not feeling comfortable discussing my issues and felt like he just wanted me to come visit so he could bill my insurance.

I've been seeing Dr Christiansen for 3-5 years now as my previous Dr left the practice. Dr Christiansen seemed adequate initially. Has yawned several times during our sessions and seems uninterested in genuinely trying to help. He is unresponsive when emailing or calling for prescriptions. Even the pharmacy has difficulty contacting him and the office for additional medications. Prescriptions have been called in wrong also. He has forgotten appointments and even left for the day when sched
