When I moved to South Carolina a couple of years ago I continued seeing my old doctor in New England but tired. Of the long drive so looked for a local Doctor and found Dr. Christensen and could not be any happier, he is professional without being insensitive cares about his patient takes time to listen exudes confidence, which in turn makes you trust him and his medical judgements I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a highly competent doctor at the top of his profession.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share these thoughts. We appreciate the kind words.

I have been a patient with Dr. Christensen at least 12 years. It has been a totally good experience. I value him, the PA's, the entire staff. They are always kind, caring, considerate. That is something I particularly am grateful for. We know sometimes a trip to the doctor can be one when we are fearful. When Dr. C or his staff say to me, call us if you need us. I know they mean it.
