Dr. Christensen is amazing. His assistant Brittney, is amazing also. I very highly recommend them. The Specialty Surgery Center was outstanding. The nurses I had were, Tracy H, Janice, Lori ( OR nurse), Lesley (OR Tech), Elizabeth (... Dr. Christensen is amazing. His assistant Brittney, is amazing also. I very highly recommend them. The Specialty Surgery Center was outstanding. The nurses I had were, Tracy H, Janice, Lori ( OR nurse), Lesley (OR Tech), Elizabeth ( patient care tech). Dr. C needed an Xray prior to my hip replacement. An XRay tech came in early to do it. Unfortunately, I don't know her name,however, she was awesome too. I couldn't recommend both the health care and the facility any higher. This was my second encounter with the surgery center and Dr. C., which I think speaks highly of both.

I would highly recommend him to anyone. I was also very pleased with his bedside manner and how well I feel like he listened and communicated with me.

He took his time with me to make sure I had a full understanding of my condition.

He has been following up my knees since he replaced the first one 20 years ago and they are still going strong. He has always been concerned with my health and well being, a fine doctor and human being

Dr Hunt was great and very easy to talk to. Being a law enforcement officer I had special concerns in my return to full duty. Dr Hunt and I discussed those concerns at length. His PAs were also great. I would highly recommend Dr Hunt and his staff without any reservations. Earl Doug Robinson

Dr. Huff and the staff at Bluegrass Orthopedics provide quality care in a first-class environment! My wait time was minimal and I was cared for in a professional manner. I highly recommend them for your orthopedic needs.
