I would recommend this office to anyone!
I went to Dr. Christensen for my knee. He and his front office staff or so kind and helpful! I felt like he wanted to get to know me. And when explaining what was wrong he did it so I would understand what he was saying, he even used a model to help demonstrate. I would recommend this office to anyone!
He is friendly, patient, professional, honest.
Dr. Kevin Christensen is the best! He is friendly, patient, professional, honest. I value his opinion and he has given me more like 10 star care! The staff at the salem clinic are so kind and sweet. The x-ray tech is super cool friendly guy and I appreciate him to the max. Thank you for everything!
This doctor is awesome!
I have been having tennis elbow pain for months now. It was getting to the point where I couldn't use the arm at all. I couldn't lift a glass. Press buttons on my phone. Curl my hair. Move a blanket off my body in bed. Dr. Christensen gave me an elbow strap and helped place it in the proper position. I had been doing it all wrong making it worse. And he put me in a wrist brace. Which I thought was weird. But in 3 days I finally have woken up with no excruciating pain like always had before. This could mean no surgery. I am so grateful. I will continue with the recommended treatment. This doctor is awesome!
