I can't say I know how he does it, but since I've been seeing Dr Christianson I haven't had an episode of mania or depression, though previously I needed hospitalization nearly every five years. I also like that he is a man of faith and makes it comfortable for me to discuss religion with him though we are of different faiths.

Since 2017, off and on, I have seen Dr. Christianson. I have been exposed to numerous psychiatrists. Dr. Christianson is the cream of the crop. Though selective in his patients, he is knowledgeable, insightful, keeps up on modern medicine, extremely caring, thought provoking..I could go on and on. He proposed a diagnosis for me which completely rang true. Psychiatrists for years have missed it. Anything this provider says, I completely trust. It is such a great relief to know I am in such good hands. It is a shame that an earlier reviewers perception was obviously clouded by perhaps their own issues. He really could have helped them.

I am a high functioning Mom with a substance abuse problem. Dr. C has been working with me for many years. I am sober now for over a year. This is not because Of him but with his help. He is one of the most thought provoking, out of the box Dr.s that I have been to. He gives you time and all his attention. He’s the Dr. You’ve been looking for.

Perfunctory diagnosis of my condition. Detoxing off of my decade long benzo addiction was dangerously insufficient. I was told by other doctors that I was lucky I didn't die there at Las Encinas.

We stopped using Warren Christianson's services because overall, he doesn't care for his patients. He cares greatly for their money, but has shown time and time again that money's his main concern over the patient's well being. His connections with the Las Encinas Rehabilitation facilities seem quite convenient seeing as its know that he overprescribes. Interesting how his ratings throughout the past couple of years have dropped significantly, coincidence?

Dr. Christianson is refreshingly straight-forward, honest and forthright. It's true that he has told me some things that I did not want to hear but every time he did the right thing for me. If you're looking for addictive drugs, it's true you should find somebody else. But anybody interested in healing and recovery and who is ready to accept real help. He's a God send!

Terrible. Unprofessional. Mightve tried to kill me. They said he was one of the best doctors they have, heard this from parents, knew it wasn't true. Quote him for saying "there is no way on God's green earth I would ever do that for you." Just about had to escape las encinas to survive that, don't send your kids there or to him.
