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.
