He's an excellent doctor who is clear and concise, while also being one of the kindest people I've ever met. He's very experienced in his profession, and has incredible empathy.

Fantastic, caring doctor. One of a kind. I went to Dr. Christolias because I was having sciatic pain radiating down my leg. I had been on a trip climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and came back from 9 days of hiking and many hours of flying with this pain. A good friend of mine recommended Dr. Christolias because he felt he was a caring, compassionate doctor. I discussed my sciatic pain with Dr. Christolias and while he was examining me, I told him that I noticed that my left leg was swollen and I was thinking that it might be from the pain I was experiencing. As soon as Dr. Christolias saw the differences in my legs, he told me that I could possibly have a blood clot and sent me immediately across the street to Lawrence Hospital. I had an ultrasound on my legs and within a half an hour, as I was still driving home, Dr. Christolias called and told me that I had a blood clot in my left leg and that I was to go to the hospital for a work up “now”. I am sincerely grateful to Dr. Christolias for listening to me and for for making an astute assessment that potentially saved my life because that clot could have traveled to my lungs or elsewhere. I am now on blood thinners for 6 months and being followed by a hematologist. Thank you Dr. Christolias. You are number 1 to me!

I have been going to Dr. Christolias since Sept 2020 (it is now July 2021) and if I ever have any more back issues in the future he will be my first call! I went in with strange pain without any injuries that should have caused it. He listened and took time with me to explain everything. He was very thorough and when he realized my issue may/is joint related he guided me to another excellent doctor that specializes in my medical issue. He made sure to have me come in every few months shortly after my new diagnosis to make sure all is still going well with my new treatment from the specialist he recommended to me. I appreciate that he is personable, listens to me, and even though what turned out to be wrong with me was not in his field, he still made sure to follow up with me and he didn't just toss me aside. In the early stages of seeing him as well after my XRay results he called me personally as well which I thought was amazing. He is a doctor that truly wants the best for his patients.

Amazing Dr. ! He took the time to speak to and understand my only spanish speaking father. My dad had severe knee pain and works as a SUPER so it was affecting his mobility at work. Dr. quickly diagnosed him and provided injection that alleviated his pain so much that he told me he felt 30 years old again. My father was so grateful for Dr. Christolias and as was I for him getting my dad the care he needed. Definitely recommend !!!

Dr. Christolias is anomaly. A doctor who cares and spends actual time with his patience in todays world is uncommon, but Dr. Christolias does. He took the time to explain each aspect of my condition and treatment and I left his office feeling 100% confident in him. He has now treated both me and my wife; and we both love him.
