Couldn't be more happy and satisfied with all aspects of Dr Christensen and staff. I credit him (and my daughters) with literally saving my life last Dec/Jan. Besides being a fine surgeon and diagnostician he is just a good honorable man

Treated my wife as a professional and was very thorough in diagnosing her bleeding problem. He was friendly and explained what he was seeing during the scoping process.

Dr. Christensen has cared for me for over 12 years. He saved my life; way back when I first started to see him, another physician had missed diagnosed my issue. I have to see him monthly because of Bladder and Urethra issues. Great Doctor & great staff.

The best indication of a good doctor is satisfaction over the long term. I have been seeing Dr. Christensen and PA Ray Miller over 6 years. I have had multiple issues and conditions. You could not ask for more professional and caring medical treatment

Dr. Christensen didn’t have the decency to come see us, and sent his PA instead. The PA was extremely unprofessional and did not help at all. Once the appointment with the PA was over, we met with Dr. Christensen in the hall, and he was also unprofessional. They were discussing a private condition that we were being seen for in front of other patients and clinic employees. We scheduled the appointment expecting a certain test that we were promised on the phone, which is also mentioned on the website. At the appointment we were told that the testing is not done here, and were sent away with a referral to another provider. We were also told that they won’t bill our insurance, and were instead charged $211.00, even though we are insured. We didn’t schedule the appointment to get a referral, and to be completely brushed off by both providers. Our family will not trust our healthcare needs to Ogden Clinic again. We were so disappointed in all aspects of service. Absolutely pathetic.

In a word ... horrible. Saw for possible prostate cancer issue. Prostate cancer treatments can cause impotency and leave a man pooping and peeing himself uncontrollably. This doctor actually had the arrogance to suggest that he didn't appreciate questions about those side effects and steps that he would take to avoid them! I could not get out of that office fast enough.

I was DESPERATELY sick, in agony, and disabled with crippling fatigue and erythromelalgia for 12 years. This Dr. noticed I had high oxalate and listened to his instincts put me on a low oxalate diet (an unusual choice these days) and my life was restored. I dont have to white knuckle through terrible agonies anymore and I can move my arms and legs and walk and soon I should be able to work. He saved me. I have had a lot of great, smart, doctors try their best, but he is the one who noticed the relevant test result and brought me back from the brink. I cannot give a high enough recommendation. His staff is excellent too, by the way. For example, his NP is stellar.

Obviously me and the boys were pretty nervous for the vasectomy but Dr Christensen did a great job distracting me by talking about off the wall stuff from start to finish. He has quick wit which definitely lightened the mood. He even had me laughing a little. He also has a friendly staff that made me feel comfortable. If you’re considering having a vasectomy he’s your guy.
