Patient Comments (5)

I would never recommend that anyone go to Dr Christie. I didn't like the office at all and felt like I was being forced into laser surgery for my cataracts, and . . .he recommended a pre-op laser procedure before my cataracts. No bedside manner, staff was having a bad day and throwing papers down...more

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Christie's for many years. I have had surgery on both eyes for cataracts with replacement lenses. I have found Both Dr. Christie and his staff to be both professional and caring. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been a patient of Dr. Christie's for quite awhile. I have had surgeries for glaucoma and cataracts. I have never had a problem with Dr. Christie or with his staff. He is a caring professional and I would recommend him to family & friends. Joyce Nelson
