Dr. Christine L Twining has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
  • 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.

A True Scientist

Her evidence based approach to medicine is refreshing. She doesn't make decisions based on personal bias but through scientific tests and knowledge. Furthermore, she is empathetic and compassionate. Just because you may be overweight or a large person she doesn't immediately conclude that you are diabetic, an overeater, or less worthy of treatment because you are not perfect.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Disorganized circus

Never able to see the doctor as the front office staff lost my paperwork. They cancelled my appointment after they said they never received the records my primary faxed over! Waited 3 months for the appointment and drove over 40 miles to the office right after a snow storm just to find out they gave my appointment time to someone else. Not to be trusted. If you do chose to use this office, call ahead, several times to make sure they don't canel your appointment. Can't speak to the doctor's ability as they would not fit me in to see her, even after my records were re-faxed.
