Absolutely pleased with Dr Christie and his team. Their work enabled me to return to a healthy lifestyle after 4 years of begging other doctors to hear my concerns and help me. His surgery and the hospital treatment by his team and hospital staff were amazing. Thank you, Dr Christie and UPMC!

the length of time spent there for your tests and seeing the doctor. Had no where else I had to be but was getting sick from the special cocktail drink for the one test.

Dr. Neil Christie is always very friendly, professional, caring and kind during my visits. I may wait to see him a little over 15 minutes but I do not mind because I know that he spends as much time as is necessary with all of his patients, including me. I would definitely recommend him!
