And proceeded to tell us how annoying children would get and that you'll wish you can send her back one day. Literally.

    Great doctor! Very professional. Takes the time to listen. Genuine. Tells me what I need to hear. I highly recommend him.

    Dr Christiansen has been my primary care physician since 1995. He has always been very personable, taking his time with me and answering my questions. Since Ogden Clinic has grown so huge, it has become harder and harder to schedule appointments. Every time I call, I'm on hold for 3-5 minutes, and then if I want to speak to a real person, I have to leave a message. So that is the one negative.
