Dr. Christensen is incredible- he’s an awesome surgeon and great with patients . He put me at ease regarding my upcoming knee replacement. He’s the best.
I have been extremely happy with the treatment from Dr Christiansen and he always puts my mind at ease. His PA"s are excellent and provide confidence in treatment. I would recommend him with pleasure.
From praying with me prior to surgery, outcome of surgery, and followup hospital visits, I could not have asked for a more caring physician.
I would highly recommend Dr. Christensen for any hip joint related problems.
