My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Christensen for at least 10 years and have never had any problems with his staff or Dr. Christensen. If we have any problems with our health he explains what we need to do and if we need any medicine he lets us know how to use it and what we can expect it to do. We have full faith in his decision for our health.
