These people I trust and the trust paid off. After initial office visit the schedule was set in motion. A date was set and due to a cancelation I was taken two weeks early. Today I am home with no regrets and a new respect for Dr. Christensen. I highly recommend him and St.Joe East for your surgeries.

Dr. Christiansen really gave me a new lease on life when he performed my total knee replacement. I am now able to do so many things I love to do but thought were lost to me.

Dr Vasicek sees me as a whole person, not a collection of ailments. She listens and explains things well. She is proactive in addressing my needs, and will recommend various steps I can take versus just mentioning one option per visit....

Perfectionist I just had a total hip replacement and I highly recommend Dr. Denehy! He listens well, he has excellent bedside manner, and I feel like he is a real perfectionist! I am ecstatic with my outcome.
