From Gayle Christensen


My husband, Dr. Chris Christensen, is a Family Physician (MD) with 40+ years of broad spectrum primary care practice, most recently to the un(der)insured in rural Montana.  He has been forced out of practice for several years, and now faces prosecution at a state level (the first case ever in Montana) for “overprescribing opioids” to chronic pain patients.  This is ‘part and parcel’ of an overall effort to force physicians to give their first priority in health care decision making to the policies of the Federal bureaucracies and third party payors, rather than focusing their commitment on the care of the individual patient, who has entrusted their health and wellbeing to a physician of their choosing.


The case is scheduled in District Court of Ravalli County from Thursday, October 19 to November 17, 2017 with the exception of Wednesdays.


It is painful to witness him being tried in an extremely biased fashion in the media.  Dr. Chris is a caring man and healer, and a loving husband and father.  He treated patients, young and old, for a variety of ailments, not just chronic pain.  He is an upstanding citizen, and in no way a criminal.  I pray, with the assistance of an outstanding legal team, and God watching over us, that we can prove just that to a jury of his peers.

  2. Yes.
    I have it on authority
    This all started with a petition to DEA by the local pharmacies who thought his doses were too high.
    These are doses patients were on when they came to him.

    Talk about “Tar and Feather “-
    They charged him with 400 felonies…….
    On a total of 11 patients.

    2 deaths
    398 felony distribution.
    That like 37 felonies per patient.

    It took almost two years before they even charged him.
    In what criminal justice system do you wait 28-20 months to charge someone?

    Speedy trial?
    Innocent until..,

    Not in The State of the Vigilante…,

    • It is so disgusting to know what the DEA and state medical boards can get away with when it comes to doctors’ constitutional rights. (We already know the DEA has gotten away with violating many citizens’ constitutional rights in the name of the “war on drugs.” Even worse is the way they can spin this crap with the aid of the mainstream media (aka our government’s propaganda machine). It’s ridiculous enough that they can charge a doctor for merely showing compassion, prescribing LEGAL, government-approved medication to his patients, but even worse when they violate a doctor’s natural-born rights..

      A doctor and/or a pharmacist should NOT be held liable for another adult’s irresponsible actions. Once that prescription is written, filled and paid for, it’s the responsibility of the patient to adhere to the directions. If they don’t, then they should expect possible bad outcomes that is the fault of the patient, NOT the doctor or pharmacist. In no way am I implying that an addict “deserves” to die. I do have compassion for them and their families. However, when one chooses to abuse medication, taking more than directed, mixing it with other substances that should not be mixed, bad things might happen! The bad things that might happen is due to the irresponsibility of the patient, a grown adult.

      For example, f I choose to drink and drive under the influence of alcohol, causing the death of another person, I am held responsible for that person’s death because I chose to drive under the influence, regardless of the fact that my ability to think straight was impaired at the time – impaired due to MY choice and MY irresponsibility. Society would be outraged if a drunk driver turned around and sued the alcohol manufacturing company and the liquor store. Why? Because they want me to take responsibility for my own actions. Why are the “rules” different when it comes to abusing prescription opioids?
