I was very pleased with my surgery and experience with Dr. Christensen.

He is a very conscientious doctor who spends adequate time making sure that his patients understand his diagnoses. He addresses patients' concerns and always has treated us as we expect professionals to do. There have been times when he advised surgery (for my husband once and for me once) and other times when he has advised other treatment. Both times, our surgeries were very successful. I trust his judgment.

He completely explained my condition and my options so that I could make an informed decision. I chose a steroid shot for my hand and it worked miracles. He also told me that the length of the pain relief would differ from patient to patient and that would further help me to decide if I wanted to have surgery for the arthritis. I highly recommend Dr. Favetto and I will continue to see him if I have further issues.

He was very attentive to my questions and to my wife’s questions. Dr. Denehy performed a complete hip replacement on my right hip in January 2019, and then a complete hip replacement on my left hip on March 2019. I would highly recommend Dr. Denehy, he is an excellent and caring surgeon. Dr. Denehy is one fine young man and it has been a pleasure to get to know him.

Really took the time and explained things to me. Have gone to three other doctors about my arthritis in my neck and thumb and carpal tunnel in both my wrists and no one offered a plan to help me. He understood my pain, why it was happening and how to fix it.

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.

Highly recommend Dr. Denehy's clear, concise explanation of what to expect from a knee replacement. He answered all questions from both of us.
