He is an amazing, intelligent, caring, knowledgeable, dedicated and gifted surgeon. The progress made thus far would not be what it is, if it was not for Dr. Christie and his team. From the first call to his office to the follow-up surgery appointment we knew/know we where in the best hands/team possible.

October 06, 2017

all positive I tell everyone about Dr Christie & his team! I feel so grateful for all the help they have given me & don't know how to repay them for the care they have given me!

I do not have any bad experiences related to my care provider.

August 25, 2017

My appointment was at 2:00 pm, I arrived at 1:58 and at 4:00 pm I was still not seen by Dr. Christie. 2 HOURS i sat in the exam room and no one talked to me about anything. I ended up having to leave because I was now running late for work. 15-20 minutes I don't mind waiting, I even gave an hour without complaint, but 2 hours was awful... and I wasn't told he was running late when I got there otherwise I would've just rescheduled.

August 23, 2017

Dr. Christie is the best and I feel blessed to have him as a surgeon.

August 18, 2017

Great provider, very long wait every time to see him. Scheduling between patients should be longer so wait time is shorter

August 11, 2017
