As always, this office was very nice to come to except for the drive, too bad you don't have a helicopter service from Beaver county to your office! I would be the first person to use it! Ha! I appreciate Dr. Christie so much he took out a stage II cancer from my chest ! I really don't know how a person is supposed to thank him. The bags of pistachios just don't seem to be enough! Ha ! Show him this he will know who wrote it! Seriously this office has always been very professional and great to be at the job isn't easy I have an office of my own so I value good workers, they are great!

Dr. Christie, who performed surgery on me twice in 2013 has always been nothing but courteous, caring, friendly and always treats me as if I am his only patient. His staff has also been courteous and helpful throughout the years. Dr. Christie's assistant physician, Mary Graham, has treated me also always with kindness and courtesy. This is one doctor's appointment that I do not mind attending!

I am extreme impressed with this facility and all staff. My Drs are amazing. They seem to know everything about me before they even enter the room. And had a plan for my care before I even met them. Dr. Christie is kind, well spoken, so knowledgeable and skilled. He sat with patience and listened to me and gave me all information I could possibly need. He answered all my questions. I never felt rushed. And, I felt like everything at that moment was ALL about me! Absolutely, would recommend and see him again if needed!!! Iwas confident from the first moment he would do the best job possible. I was never worried!
