He has always been so thorough and helpful. I currently have another knee injury and the E.r wanted to refer me elsewhere. I will not go anywhere else. He had no issues with signing forms for when in was in high school to get out of gym class until healed.

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.

Best hand doctor Dr. Favetto is prepared to handle the most complex of hand procedures and pays attention to the smallest details. He is well respected by his medical peers who unanimously recommend him. He explains all procedures completely and leaves the decisions up to you. Sometimes you have to wait for your appointment because an emergency has arisen, but one must remember one's own emergency that brought one to his office in the first place, and it is well worth the wait.

Great! Listens, explains, kind-everything you need when you’re suffering! He’s fixed several broken hands and both wrists for me-surgery and plate on one-couldn’t be happier! Highly recommend!
