Jill Christensen is by far the best physician I have ever had. I have referred patients to her but unfortunately she is not taking new patients now. Even if I moved out of the area I would travel back to the area to continue seeing Dr. Christensen.

Dr Christensen is great and makes me feel at ease. She is easy to talk to and is able to get to the problem right away. My overall experience was wonderful, BUT....I WAITED IN THE EXAM ROOM FOR MORE THAN 30 MINUTES. It was the end of the day, so next time I will book an early appointment.

Dr. Christensen was very attentive to my needs. She referred me to a physical medicine Dr. when I told her of an accident I had had and after she physically examined me. She was concerned over an increase in my blood pressure and the effect it might have on my kidney function. and ordered test and prescribe meds after reviewing the test results. I will ask her to explain the problem to my wife which I am confident she will do.

office staff is always very professional and respectful. This doctor makes me feel like she really knows what's going on with my health and I feel comfortable and trusting with her. before I was diagnosed with Graves disease I had a lot of problems health-wise and I was beginning to feel like a hypochondriac. But she did not make me feel this way she kept at it until she finally figured out what the heck was wrong with me for that I am very thankful.

The only issue I have is how I am treated in the ER becaise of the fact I am on pain meds and a contract. Sometimes I meed help with nreak through with the neck pain thats turns into a terrible jead ache. I always call the drs office and they tell me to go to the ER but when I get there they dont treat the pain issue. Sometimes when I cant keep anything down because of the pain I just need to get relief from it. Dr. Christensen os doing everything she can to get me to the specialty clinics I need to. I hate going to the ER but what else can I do.
