Christine and staff are wonderful, caring and compassionate people- they are dealing with patients and family that are dealing with a very difficult disease. This is the first time i've had to deal with a disease like LBD and it's been difficult, but I feel dad is in good hands with Christine and Dr Tousi and their team.

She gave me same meds that didn't help - so I called her and she explained why she did what she did and she was absolutely right! She said the memory problem is because I was not sleeping good. I finally slept 8 hrs. Straight and I had no memory problem that next day. However even with Trasodone I have quite a few nights that I wake up at 2:00Or 4:00 a.m. So if I keep waking up I'll have to call Chris again & see if there is any other sleep medicine I can try. But you have an asset there inChris Nelson I feel she is as qualified as any doctor! Thank you!

We love Christine. She is compassionate and honest, and I feel that she cares about me, the caregiver for a spouse with Alzheimer's, as much as she does my husband. She always makes me feel like I can reach out to her any time I need to.
