Dr Christie is an excellent very caring physician.

October 16, 2019

The only issue with the office visit on 10/16/19 was that we waited over 3.5 hours to be seen. But, Dr. Christie is worth the wait. He always explains everything so that I can understand it. He doesn't talk down to you. I would wait however long it took to be able to see Dr. Christie, because that is how much I believe in him.

Dr. Christie is an amazing surgeon who obviously cares greatly for his patients. I could not have asked for a better surgeon.

October 11, 2019

I believe that Dr Christie is an excellent, experienced surgeon. During the past 4 years that I have been under his care, he has always been knowledgeable, informative, attentive and professional. I would never consider another surgeon in his area of expertise, and I tell everyone that he is great! I have complete confidence.
