A long-time resident of Alaska, Dr. Christensen began his Family Medicine practice at the Fairbanks Clinic before joining Independence Park in 1985. In addition to his on-going Family practice, Dr. Christensen has a special interest in Sports Medicine and continues to treat Anchorage athletes of all ages. Dr. Christensen enjoys fishing and hunting in the Alaskan bush. Married since 1969, his wife Linda works with him as his full-time nurse. Together, their love of travel and dedication to medicine has led them to participate in mission trips to far-flung points around the world. During their most recent trip to remote communities in Guatemala, they treated more than one hundred underserved villagers in just a few days. As the father of two adult sons, and grandfather of five, Dr. Christensen brings a true family perspective to his practice. He maintains full-time office hours and accepts most new patients.
