Dr Christensen is a very caring and thorough doctor. He has eye contact with you when speaking and shows his overall concern with your condition. He orders the appropriate tests if needed and does not overly prescribe medication. Recently he was able to diagnose a condition I had on the spot which saved me time and money from having to seek out emergency rooms/specialists. I highly recommend him as well as his professional and courteousness staff.

I can count on one hand the number of Dr's that project genuine care and concern for the patient at hand. Dr. Christensen is straightforward, objective, honest and most of all understandable. He projects honest concern with his recommendations .and most important of all listens to the feedback and addresses the concerns both obvious and imagined. I would like to add that this is a genuine appraisal based on my life experiences and my great respect for Dr. Christensen.

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.

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.
