Specialties

  • Trauma Surgery

    Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

I went to this office for acupuncture. I hardly felt any pain in fact I would fall asleep during my acupuncture treatments. I had terrible fibro milage I was in so much pain with that and migraines. Her treatments eased the symptoms emancely. I have been going to doctors for years and she was the first doctor to tell me I had Epstein Barr a terrible painful and draining condition. She is one of the best and smartest doctors I have ever encountered.

I went to see Dr. Christensen several years back for acupunture. She takes the time to listen to your condition, creates a treatment plan, and is friendly. He east meets west approach is great, her acupuncture treatments helped and she gave me herb that got rid of the ringing in my ears. The only set back was that she did not take insurance and she was about 50 minutes away.
