Risks of Knee Replacement
Very professional and listened to what I had to say and answered all my questions.They definitely know what they are doing. I would highly recommend.
Dr. Christensen did a total hip replacement on me 5 years ago. I highly recommend him! Yesterday I saw Matt, the PA for some issues with my left leg. I was very impressed with him too!
I was so very impressed with all the staff. Everyone was efficient, knowledgeable, helpful, well organized and friendly. Everything you could ask for in the medical field.
Wonderful! He really takes the time to offer his patients the best care. Would not consider anyone else for hip or knee. His skills are amazing, plus he really demonstrates that he wants his patients to get better!
Extremely knowledgeable and friendly caregivers. The wait time was minimal. This is one of the best surgeons you are going to find anywhere. I am so lucky to have found this doctor.
