SHC Patient, Dec 2019

Dr. Christenson was the best Ob/GYN doctor I have ever seen. Took time to listen to my concerns and was super informative. Showed lots of care and was super sweet.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

It has been a very goodbye very good experience the last two years

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

My doctor is great and I would recommend her to others. My treatment with her has been very smooth and she is very caring.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr. Christianson is so thorough and takes that time to answer all of my questions and explain everything that she is doing.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Even though this was my third miscarriage, she didn't think there was anything to be done, but took more of a wait and see if it happens again approach. I would have liked to be more thorough/proactive

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

she's wonderful

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr.Christenson, was able to reassure me and my husband at every meeting and she has been a great resource. She was clear about medications, advice about exercise and overall well being. She also explained our next steps in great detail and gave me ideas to reduce my discomfort. I have seen her in years apast and she has always been informative and easy to talk to.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr. Christenson is an amazing physician, surgeon, and person!

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

She was SO patient with me, I am supremely grateful and she's easily my favorite gyn ever. She let me get into the weeds with my questions and respected the fact that I did a lot of "homework" reading about my treatment options. She took the time to explain her latest understanding of gyn treatment methods and it gave me confidence that she was up to date! She also answered a large volume of emails from me, which I think hinted at my concern. But in the room she really put me at ease and I felt like she was very empathetic. I literally remember her saying that it was definitely a good thing to care what was happening to my body. What a reassuring thing to hear. She was also wonderful at being mindful of how my husband was doing (the answer to that is...squirming, so hard, in the corner) and thought to dismiss him to the waiting room - to his relief! That was so thoughtful.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

I brought up a women's health concern that I've had for years and that I brought up to other providers and it was dismissed. Providers don't take this topic seriously. That's the only concern I have with Dr Christensen.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Kristensen is an amazing doctor that I would recommend to anyone. I had so many questions about IUD options and she patiently answered every single one and made me feel like I had control over my own healthcare decisions.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Overall good experience. Addresses questions, but doesn't go into much detail.

I wish there was a way to rate Dr. Christenson "excellent" as she is the very best. I trust her so thoroughly and look forward to my time w/her for every appointment.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Simply outstanding. Best care I've received in a long time. I feel very grateful.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

I'd actually prefer if the provider would go into more depth (use more medical terms and detailed physiological explanations), so I understand the situation more. I'll let her know next time.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Thanks to Dr. Christenson for being so great. Taking extra time w/me to talk about difficult issues/decisions.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr Christenson is one rare doctor to truly care for her patients and provide both cutting-edge and compassionate care.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

I was nervous about this appointment and really appreciate Dr. Christenson's sensitivity, respectfulness, & consideration.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

fantastic care

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

I am very happy with my doctor, she is kind. I wish someone had told me I needed pads after my surgery, I was unprepared for blood leaking.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr Christenson is a great doctor. She takes the concerns of the patient seriously and puts us at ease during all the appointments.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

My file indicates sensitive matter re: medical history. I am comfortable discussing it however this visit the doctor addressed the material rather abruptly and unexpectedly. I became emotional (crying) yet continued to communicate with her through it. She did not seem to accept my side of the communication as she proceeded to push recommendations and requests of me which did not honor the sensitive nature of my medical history or the current/recent status of myself relative to the medical history. I continued to be emotional through the remainder of the exam/visit and felt, though this was the first time we shared this failure of report, that it was significantly discouraging. I listed I would still recommend her as she has been, every other visit, wonderful of bedside manner and very friendly. I believe she is an exceptionally qualified practitioner; I simply feel I will now be guarded and that isn't a status I prefer with a doctor.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Doctor was super clear about the procedure and made me feel very comfortable. Trusted her completely and had a great experience.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

I was pleased that she directly addressed some of the more uncomfortable topics associated with OB/GYN care. Previously they had been hard to discuss with my earlier specialist.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr Christenson is excellent

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Great experience with Dr. Christenson.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Kamilee Christenson. She is one of the best practitioners I have ever had and I greatly respect the amount of care, professionalism, kindness, and thoroughness she provides.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Great!

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Excellent, as always!

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

The doctor and staff were friendly and courteous. I felt like my concerns were listened to.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

Not very empathetic

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Almost overtly friendly but positive experience in general.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Very knowledgeable, _____, handled questions, concerns without making me feel like I wasting time or crazy. I would say directions to book future appts. could be more clear but front desk staff was very helpful.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

The provider was very thorough in her explanation and patient when I asked questions

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

A very personable group of practitioners.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Love the practice!

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. Kamilee was great. Made an awkward check-up fly by.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

I was a little confused about which follow - up appointments to make.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

My doctor was very patient in the IUD insertion process and took the time to explain everything I should know.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Christenson did a really good job at taking her time with me, answering every question I had and providing a sheet with medication benefits/effects. I think it would be wise to explain to every pregnant woman the process of how a baby is conceived. For example, my last menstrual cycle was 10 weeks ago. However, my baby was conceived 8 weeks ago. For pregnancy terms, we shall say the baby is 10 weeks old because back in the day this was the only way they could define the length of the pregnancy. Take off two weeks, and THAT'S when the baby was conceived.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Really wonderful clinic, I really like my provider

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Christenson answered questions I didn't even know I had! I'm sure they would have crossed my mind at a later date but she answered them so I wouldn't even have to worry.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Christenson is wonderful!

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

she is excellent. i had a rare complication after the delivery of my daughter. even though she only saw me once during my pregnancy she was awesome. she was very comforting when she discussed my need for surgery in the early post part period and since then has been excellent. she also held my baby so i could get dressed when i was there without my husband. she is exceptional

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

The doctor was very kind, understanding, honest, and open. She answered all my questions with patience and made sure I knew what was coming every step of the way.

SHC Patient, May 2015
