Dr. Christie is an excellent communicator. He always takes the time to explain anything related to my condition and answers all my questions. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

July 19, 2019

Dr. Christie is top notch but the wait to see him once I get back to an exam room is almost always an hour or more. It is so disheartening. Somehow, that needs to change.
