Dr. Christensen provided excellent care for my mother. He is kind, thoughtful, and very professional. He made my mother feel very well taken care of and fixed her severe foot issues. After surgery she followed the doctor’s orders to the T and has had a full recovery and her results look wonderful. Her feet haven’t felt this great in years and now she can keep up with her little grandsons!

Dr. Christensen fixed both my baby toes--I'm a runner and they've seen years of pavement pounding. He was extremely professional, knowledgable and kind. His staff was also very helpful in answering my questions. I can't believe there is even a single nay-sayer (I think someone just has a bee in their bonnet!). Dr. Christensen is one of the nicest + most respectful people you'll ever meet. 10/10 I'd recommend him to ALL of my friends, family and enemies.

I heard about Dr. Christensen from friends who said he was a very caring podiatrist. Even though I live 2 hours away, I took their advice and traveled to Amory for my first appointment. I am so happy I chose Dr. Christensen-he is wonderful! There was a bit of a wait because he is so well known, but it was worth my time. He diagnosed my foot problems and gave me ideas to help make my foot problems less painful. His office is beautiful and clean. The receptionist was very friendly and his assistants were helpful.
