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!

Dr. Christensen and his staff are excellent at what they do,- but of equal importance they seem to be very good people. Some medical experiences can be summed up as a staff that serves people but has a low level of respect for persons. This is NOT the case here. Dr. Christiansen reflects his commitment to good persons to serve people, and the person, by the staff members you encounter along the process to see the doctor or his capable PA Evan Hanson. I trust his medical skills, but I respect and equally value his personhood and those of his staff. Bonnie Crandall

I prayed all spring and summer for god to lead someone across my path with the best of best doctor that was a godly man/woman for my knees ,I'm so thankful he answered my prayers, he was not only a Christian but he prayed for the patient and prayed for his staff that helped him during surgery. I called and got right in to see Dr Christian Christensen ...I loved him, trusted him, loved his staff and three days later he partially replaced one of my knees !! I would highly recommend this wonderful doctor
