Saw Dr. Christie at request of Dr. DeLaCruz because of surgery. Needed Dr. Christie to remove a rib or do chest reconstruction. He examined me and explained what the surgery would involve.

This was my first visit to see Dr. Christie regarding a lung mass. He was very easy to talk with and explained everything and answered questions. He was recommended by a friend who was highly pleased.

very good experiences with the doctor and staff.

I'm not sure what the problem was but my CT Scan was for 10:00 a.m. I didn't have it until 11:00 my apt with Dr. Christie was for 11:00 I checked in at 11:16 and wasn't seen until going on 1:00 p.m. I had to ask if the Dr. was running late, which I understand that may happen but, it would have been nice if someone would have stated that. However, I'm was really thankful the parking was only $5.00 that was a blessing for me.
