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.

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

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 had prior hip replacements, years ago. I needed a hip revision and couldn’t find a doctor to attempt to do surgery on me, because of the complications I previously had and some I was still having. I was referred to Dr. Christensen, he went above and beyond to help me. He has a great bedside manner and is such a wonderful, caring physician. I would refer him to anyone and I will always remember how nice he has been to me. Thank you so much Dr. Christensen, May God bless you!
