Charles L. Crist, MD, PC


“I have been under Dr. Crist’s care now for about 6 years, and I can honestly say he saved my life. After 10 ½ months of being misdiagnosed and basically abandoned by my family doctor and the local medical community, I was feeling pretty lost and hopeless. It’s hard to describe how much hope my first appointment with Dr. Crist gave me, because I had gone through months of seeing doctors that told me anything from “Lyme Disease doesn’t exist in Kansas” to “You’re just depressed.” Dr. Crist is everything all of those doctors were not: he is kind, knowledgeable, patient, and most of all he listens. With Dr. Crist you’re getting an MD that “gets you” and has devoted his career to researching and treating tick borne diseases. It’s because of Dr. Crist that I have what I have today, and that is my life back.”

“I am extremely thankful to be a patient of Dr. Crist. The diagnoses and treatments that I’ve received from him have helped more than any other Dr. that I’ve seen. I spent 20 years visiting many Dr.s all over the country before an infectious disease specialist found out that I had Lyme Disease. That Dr. treated me with antibiotics but I never saw much improvement. Since becoming a patient of Dr. Crist he has found and treated many other issues that present the same symptoms as Lyme Disease. His individualized treatment plan has already helped me, but more importantly given me hope that as we continue I can get back to normal.”

“I began seeing Dr. Crist 6 months ago. I was very impressed with how knowledgeable and thorough he is. He assessed each of my symptoms and did not discount any of them. I attribute my improvement to his effort as a physician to stay current in his field and to listen to me as a patient. I feel fortunate to have found out about him.”

“After 22 years of suffering from a mysterious chronic illness, dozens of visits to medical specialists, and years of misdiagnoses, I was blessed to have found Dr. Crist. He listened as I recalled myriad symptoms that plagued me for over two decades, and he promptly ordered the testing necessary to confirm the proper diagnoses that others had missed. His extensive knowledge of tick-borne diseases, his effective treatment plan, and his compassion for those who have been mistreated/neglected by the medical community gave me hope and the chance to reclaim my life. I’m convinced that he, along with his medical staff, saved my life; something for which I will be extremely grateful.”

“I highly recommend Dr. Charles Crist. I had my first appointment with Dr. Crist in September 2000. A few days after this appointment, I began to feel better and was able to return to work full time. It took me 3 months to find and see Dr. Crist. So getting to a doctor like Dr. Crist whom is very knowledgeable concerning Borreliosis/Master’s Disease can be a real life saver. I am from out of state, but it is well worth the drive/fly to see Dr. Crist in Missouri. I have been his patient for 18 years.”
