Have a little faith

In June of 2017 I was diagnosed with stage 3 Ovarian cancer. I was referred to Carl Christie. It took awhile to get in to see him but it was worth the wait. He & Kendra lifted my Spirit & helped me understand what was happening in my body. I'm a woman of faith which made it easy to accept the out come knowing that my God could do anything. Dr. Christie is also a man of faith, God knew where He wanted me. My surgery was done on August 2nd without any problems. Dr. Christie & Kendra were at my every call after the surgery & throughout my healing process. No matter what time of night or day I called one of them would immediately return my call. I have recommended them to many who are facing this type of calamity in their lives. Is he hard to get into? You bet. He's one of the best & there's nothing better than having a doctor who can help you "have a little faith"
