I was very pleased with the care received by Dr. Christensen and his staff. He had been highly recommended to me for several years by many people, including another orthopedist in another practice.

Very good, I was well informed about what was going to happen and what to prepare for. I have not had any issues with the surgery and feel great. Had other issues that the staff (Laura) helped me with and went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. Would recommend Dr. Christensen to anyone having a hip replacement.
