Back in 2010 he did a malpractice on my left wrist and we figure it out like 8 months after the surgery but the Workers Comp case was already closed..

I am very grateful to Dr. Christensen for the surgical repair he did to my very broken, mangled arm, which happened in a car accident. The operation was complicated and my recovery long, but I have full use of that arm and hand thanks to this surgery, and to Dr. Christensen's skill as an orthopedic surgeon.

I have been a patient of Dr. Christensen for over 10 years. He has performed surgery on my hands for carpel tunnel, trigger finger and tendons and my shoulder for a ripped rotar cuff with great success. He has very good bedside manner and keeps you informed of everything that is going on before, during and after surgery. I would not hesitate to use him again or to recommend him to someone else.

Don't go to him!!! I have not been able to sleep for a week and knew I had Carpal Tunnel that was diagnosed by Duek Spine. I went to him to schedule surgery and he takes xrays and tells me my bones are fine! Yes, I know(wasting insurance money and giving me unnecessary radiation with no protection). Then I ask if there is anything I can do for temporary pain relief(thinking Cortisone shots) This rude Doctor stated sternly "WE DO NOT PRESCRIBE NARCOTICS!" I didn't even ask for any! Idiot! Steer Clear!

Do yourself a favor, do not go here

Horrible, horrible bedside manner. And Dr Christensen even admits it! He is rude and condescending and is proud of it. I went back to his office over and over thinking I HAD to go to this office. The final straw came and I went to a competitor. SOOOO much better. Do yourself a favor and do not go here. The staff knows how rude he is, and he even admitted to me that he has a poor bedside manner. After my blood pressure was rising with each visit (and I am young and healthy with good blood pressure) I went to a competitor. The experience was night and day. Please learn from my misfortune. You do not have to be abused by this man. There are many alternatives in the Orlando area. I had a very successful surgery elsewhere without having to take this man's verbal abuse. And beside his poor bedside manner, my new doctor told me that his opinion was that I would no longer have use of a finger if I would have stayed with Dr Christensen. He did not have me in physical therapy and my new doctor thought that to be a very poor decision. I have full use of my finger thanks to my new doctor being proactive and prescribing physical therapy before surgery. I guess Dr Know It All (Dr Christensen) really doesnt know it all!
