Dr. Christenson is great and super patient. She listens to all my concerns. Even though I am a physician (different speciality), she makes sure to talk to me about what to expect, next steps and answers my questions in detail.
I adore Dr. Christenson. I have been having abnormal PAP smears for multiple years. She not only takes the time to calm me and answer all of my questions after her thorough explanations but she takes time getting to know me too and connecting. I am so thankful she is my doctor. everyone should have Dr. Christenson in their lives!
excellent, thanks!
Dr. Christenson is warm and friendly, and includes me in decisions related to my care.
Dr. Christenson went out of her way to ask about my own well-being during the pandemic, as well as my family's. Even though it's been a year since I last saw her, she remembered that I'm very close to my father and siblings, and she expressed great sympathy when I told her our father had passed away because of COVID. This was very comforting to me and meant a lot.
Dr. Christenson is amazing! Wonderful bedside manner, kind, and warm, and knows her stuff. She's the best!
excellent patient care - above and beyond.
In this day and age where most doctors (due to no fault of their own) are box checkers and rush through patient visits, Dr. Christenson truly differentiates herself. During this visit and all of my previous visits, she has treated me with compassion and care. No matter how busy she may be or how late she may have to stay, she always makes time to answer my questions and to even ask about my personal life in order to forge a better connection. I feel truly cared for by Dr. Christenson and am grateful to have her as my obgyn.
She answered all my questions, explained my situation well, and spent as much time as I needed without making me feel rushed. Truly compassionate! She also gave me an excellent referral and explained her reasoning behind the choice.
I really liked Dr Christianson, very personable and thoughtful. I didn't have any big issues but would be comfortable bringing them up with her in the future should they arise
Dr. Christenson was extremely patient with me, acknowledging my anxiety with being there. she took the time to explain everything before she did it. she was a master at using conversation to distract from the awkwardness of the visit and was genuinely very understanding.
I was very nervous and couldn't remember all the information from my last visit but she was great. Will def stay with her.
New patient - Dr. C. was awesome!
Dr. Christenson is one of the best, most caring, professional, and kind doctors. I am so lucky she is mine and highly recommend her to friends.
Dr. Christenson is timely, explains issues clearly, & provides useful anticipatory guidance.
The doctor was prepared (by reading all my medical history in advance), on-time, professional, and very kind. This is one of the best 1st time appointments I have had in the Bay Area. Excellence at Menlo Clinic is what I observed.
Great experience, Dr. Christenson is the best doctor I've had.
I appreciated that the Dr. read through my file before coming to the exam room. Saved time and helped inform our discussion.
Dr. Christenson is so lovely and was very understanding and reassuring. She did a wonderful job of performing my ultrasound exam and answering all of my questions. She makes me feel comfortable and very well cared for. I've already recommended her to several of my friends.
Excellent Doctor and staff. Very pleased!
good
I had a great visit with Dr. Christenson. She is knowledgeable and confident. She explained her interpretation of my ultrasound results in plain English that I could understand, and suggested several treatment options. I had a sense of relief when I was done with the appointment. I will definitely recommend her to others.
I was new to this office and Dr. Christenson- She was very kind and gentle!
Dr. Christianson came highly recommended, and I had a stellar experience with her, EXCEPT that the diagnoses she entered into my record, which I saw later on MyHealth, were listed in medical terms she did not explain to me. I had to Google the terms in my own medical record later to realize that they mapped onto the issues we had only discussed in layman's terms. I wish Dr. Christianson had shared with me the technical terms for the issues we discussed verbally instead of just entering them into my record.
Dr. Christenson was incredibly skilled and compassionate in the care she provided. She had excellent bedside manner. LISTENED, & was so thoughtful in her plan. One of the BEST doctors I've ever had.
Dr. Christenson is amazing. She's been thoughtful about my care, always thinking ahead to the next option if she doesn't see the results she wants in a reasonable time frame. She's been an awesome advocate for my health.
Dr. Christenson went above & beyond - Spent more time than was likely allotted to complete a challenging procedure - very professional yet genuinely caring kudos!
excellent experience w Dr Christensen. She is very thorough and takes the time to explain the plan of care. I'm a provider at Stanford myself, yet she still took the time to explain the work up and next steps needed.
Dr Christenson is wonderful. A good listener, knowledgeable, and has a great attending manner.
I am so grateful to Dr. Christenson as she has taken such good care of me through my pregnancy. She is very great at making sure I am making informed decisions.
VERY COURTEOUS BUT COULD NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
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.
It has been a very goodbye very good experience the last two years
My doctor is great and I would recommend her to others. My treatment with her has been very smooth and she is very caring.
Dr. Christianson is so thorough and takes that time to answer all of my questions and explain everything that she is doing.
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
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.
she's wonderful
Dr. Christenson is an amazing physician, surgeon, and person!
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.
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.
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.
Overall good experience. Addresses questions, but doesn't go into much detail.
dr. Christianson has been amazing and completely understanding of my situation, helping make me feel at ease in a normally very uncomfortable situation
Dr. Christenson is the best doctor.
Thank you so much!

Dr. Christenson always knows how to answer my questions thoroughly while keeping me calm and relaxed. I trust her completely.
Did not feel rushed through appointment and almost all were answered before I had to ask them.
Dr. Christenson has excellent bedside manner. She is easy to understand and I am able to communicate easily with her.

Dr. Christenson is very through and patient -
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.
Simply outstanding. Best care I've received in a long time. I feel very grateful.
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.
Thanks to Dr. Christenson for being so great. Taking extra time w/me to talk about difficult issues/decisions.
Dr Christenson is one rare doctor to truly care for her patients and provide both cutting-edge and compassionate care.
I was nervous about this appointment and really appreciate Dr. Christenson's sensitivity, respectfulness, & consideration.
fantastic care
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.
Dr Christenson is a great doctor. She takes the concerns of the patient seriously and puts us at ease during all the appointments.
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.
Doctor was super clear about the procedure and made me feel very comfortable. Trusted her completely and had a great experience.
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.
Dr Christenson is excellent
Great experience with Dr. Christenson.
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.
Great!
Excellent, as always!
The doctor and staff were friendly and courteous. I felt like my concerns were listened to.
Not very empathetic
Almost overtly friendly but positive experience in general.
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.
The provider was very thorough in her explanation and patient when I asked questions
A very personable group of practitioners.
Dr. Christenson was AMAZING and eased all of my fears and concerns! A really great doctor
Love the practice!
Dr. Kamilee was great. Made an awkward check-up fly by.
I was a little confused about which follow - up appointments to make.
My doctor was very patient in the IUD insertion process and took the time to explain everything I should know.
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.
Really wonderful clinic, I really like my provider
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.
Dr. Christensen is fantastic!! Very informative and personable.
Super nice!
Excellent!

Excellent happy I have moved out to Menlo Medical.
excellent attention and care! Great peace of mind that I was not experiecing something life-threatening or serious.
Dr. Christenson is wonderful!
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
I have good confidence in the care provider considering it was my first meeting with the doctor. I'm sure over time it will develop and become even better.
Dr. Christenson was one of the best doctors I've ever seen!
This was my best doctor appointment in years. It was not rushed, kind, and the care was excellent.

I will not be seeing Dr. Christenson again.
Will come back to see this doctor.
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.
Dr. Christenson took the time to answer all my questions, provided all her recommendations & put out minds at ease, so that when we left we had a plan.
Awesome care !!!
