Dr Christie and his staff always exceeded my expectations for care during the 12 weeks of our association and 2 major surgeries that I experienced. I had confidence that I was under the care of an expert surgeon who is surrounded by a skilled and caring team of professionals. My questions (and those of my family) were always answered, and requests were always addressed. My physical well-being now, and quality of life going forward, is forever changed in the most positive way by this group of intelligent, skilled and caring people.
