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.

Dr. Christie is a very good doctor and I like him as one of my doctor's and would highly recommend him. He takes him time with you and explains things and most of all, he listens to what you have to say and what questions you ask him. A lot of doctor's don't do this. Thank God for Dr. Christie.
