The level of professionalism, concern and sensitivity to the patient is at the highest level of review. Dr. Christensen is friendly in his approach, he answers questions and inquiries, and takes time to address concerns. I love and appreciate his "bedside manner." I've already recommended him to other men. After having undergone surgery under his excellent expertise, my medical concerns that initially brought me to his office have been resolved. I can't imagine a more qualified urologist.

Spectacular Dr. Would highly recommend. Enjoyed him and his friendly staff.
in Roy Ut |
He put 4 different catheters in me in a three month period. Each lodged in the back of the bladder where no urine could come out, he claimed it was because I was so fat!! I ended up With a hole that leaks Urine and needs a surgical repair, a bladder that still doesn't function, and a major staff infection from wounds associated with all the catheters. It is a long terrible story, stay away from Dr Christensen , I learned the hard way and require so much more medical attention !!
in Ogden, UT |
Excellent care. He took the time to explain my condition in a way that I understood. I was very sick and he showed his concern. He even gave me his cell phone number. He was very easy to talk to and so was his staff. I had a bit of a wait to see him, but it was worth the excellent care that I received. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
in Ogden, UT |
Very caring. Excellent office staff. He answered my questions and spent plenty of time. I felt he understood my problem and made me feel very comfortable. He is very knowledgeable and has excellent surgical skills.
Not impressed at all. He actually made me feel like he was an idiot. He didn't even look at my chart.
