Specialties

Dr. Christina A Tennyson has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

arrogant not caring about patient

Made appointment with a promise that MD does not keep patients waiting for excessive lengths of time: however MD was unavailable when I arrived. After waiting 20 minutes only when I asked I was told that MD was doing scheduled procedures I left

A Rare Find and Excellent Physician

Dr. Tennyson is really a real professional and a lovely person to deal with. I must say that it has been many years since I have met with a doctor that gave me so much time and attention. She is professional, thorough and personable.There are few doctors out there who really know Celiac and Gluten Allergies. I searched for months before finding Sr. Tennyson and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking help !

Fantastic Doctor

I've been to many Gastroenterologists. I was referred to Dr. Tennyson by another doctor in her practice that stopped taking my insurance. She was fantastic. Very caring, very old fashioned in terms of her thoroughness. It didn't seem like she was rushing through her patients at all. Overall one of the best physician experiences i've had in a while.

The Most Thorough Physician I've Seen in Years

I did not know what to expect during my visit to Columbia University Medical Center's "Celiac Clinic." Dr. Tennyson proceeded to, on a blank piece of paper, inquire about my medical history in a manner that was designed to obtain every little nuance of my health status. She was totally objective as she obtained facts that may relate to a possible diagnosis of Celiac's Disease. Dr. Tennyson was clearly not "predisposed" to obtaining answers from me that would be indicative of Celiac's. This impressed me as I have visited many physicians over the years who are determined to find that for which they are looking. Dr. Tennyson did find some issues that do require follow-up and she is referring me to that specialist. Overall, my experiences with Dr. Tennyson have been among the most positive that I have encountered in the medical profession. I recommend Dr. Tennyson unequivocally.
