Dr.Christensen is the best doctor any patient cc oils have. Baylor should clone him so that everybody has the ultimate best medical care. He is definitely the most proficient, caring, empathetic medical profession anyone could possibly have! He works with a great medical staff. I feel so privileged and fortunate to have Dr. Christensen as my PCP! I have multiple medical issues (ie. Post CVA, Diabetes, CHF) and he has been most competent in dealing with them all
