Dr. Christakos is a caring physician who seeks to meet the needs of his patients. Though we have moved from the local community, I travel back to him for my care. He is an excellent doctor who takes the needed time to talk and care for his patients. He is a definite credit to Novant Health Systems.

Dr Christakos always listens and provides a thorough explanation to any questions I have. At this visit he identified I had an enlarged thyroid, something I had no idea was there. He quickly scheduled me for tests and a referral. I feel fortunate to have such a competent and friendly physician!
