Dr.Christine E Townsend first of all has an expert bedside manner which allows the patient to be calm and trusting in the Physician. That is one of the most important things with Doctor Patient visits. Dr. Townsend was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions concerning my physical issues. I left Columbia Hospital with a great confidence that the issues at hand would be remedied. I will continue to go to Doctor Townsend as my Orthopedic and I have Recommended others to her as well.in fact one of my colleagues said that their visit with her was excellent!

Dr. Christine Townsend is an awesomely great doctor who really cares about her patients. During my visits with her she has been very thorough, kind, patient, knowledgeable and most importantly takes her time to listen to me. She works with her patients in order to figure out the proper treatment plan for them. I can tell by the way she speaks to me that she enjoys what she does and that for me is of the upmost importance because I believe that when a physician is passionate about what they do then there is no doubt that they will administer excellent care.

I saw Doctor Towsend for the first time this week. She was very warm and welcoming. Even though it was my first visit, I was very comfortable throughout the evaluation. She was very detailed in explaining aspects of the evaluation and and in giving a recommendation. Further she showed an Impeccable knowledge of her practice. Overall my experience was one of sstisfaction. I am very impressed I would recommend Dr. Townsend.

I Found Dr. Townsend personable concerned and extremely likeable. I look forward to my next visit. She found what my issue might be and had an action plan after others had not. I could honestly see and feel how she cares about the patient she has. Thanks Dr.
