Dr. David B Christian has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Highly Recommend!

Dr. Christian and PA Pam Whitely are the best! The staff is friendly and helpful. I can almost always get an appointment at least the next day. Short wait times too! Dr. and Pam both are informative and compassionate. I have finally found a Dr. who cares about me as a person. I recommend Dr. Christian to anyone who asks me if I know a good Dr.

His Name Should be Dr. Napolean Bonaparte...

Do nut use this dr. if you value your health or your job. He hates to fill out paperwork and complained about Correctional employees such as myself requiring too much. I had a serious condition which he reacted very flippantly to and dismissed as if I were exagerrating. He actually had the nerve to cut me off mid-sentence when I was asking a question about my blood pressure and state that he had run out of time. Wow. Don't risk your health or waste your time here.

Amazing doctor

Dr. Christian is caring, kind, compassionate and dedicated. His office staff are nice, organized and always available for anything I need. Dr. Christian schedules plenty of time for each patient and is not rushing between appointments, plus his wait times are very short and it's usually possible to get a same day or next day appointment. He has been an amazing asset to me, as I have several chronic conditions. He has always been understanding, open and willing to do anything to help me resolve my problems. He gives samples, discount cards, and tries his best to find generic or affordable solutions to problems. He's just the greatest doctor ever!!!
