Carolina Beach doctor surrenders license

A Carolina Beach doctor has surrendered her medical license in the face of an investigation. As of last Tuesday, Sara Lynn Christiansen, was no longer allowed to practice medicine. Her specialty is internal medicine, and she worked for Seaside Internal Medicine in Carolina Beach. A phone message at the office says it is closed due to unforeseen circumstances. Christiansen "voluntarily surrendered" her license. The state medical board said that happens during or pending an investigation. WWAY called Christiansen today. She had no comment.

Dr. Sara Christiansen

I am in total agreement with New York. She was not only my personal physician, but that also of my mother and husband. She is a compassionate doctor who really cares for her patients. Although I knew this from the day first day she treated me years ago, this became truly meaningful when my mother was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer in January. Her compassion and quick response when the reports became available - on a day the office was closed will never be forgotten.

Wonderful Doctor

I am writing from New York State and I must say, that although all the details are not known, Dr. Christiansen, has been a wonderful doctor for a dear friend of mine who lives in Wilmington. My friend's health issues and case is fairly complicated, and had it not been for this doctor's careful monitoring and health related knowledge, I am convinced the world would be shy by the loss of one more truly beautiful and talented human beings. Dr. Christiansen has demonstrated outstanding care and an unusual empathy, in a world full of uncaring doctors. My friend's life is in part due to her being an outstanding doctor. It is my hope that the good people of Wilmington will not judge this doctor too quickly, and that the investigation of whatever, will come to a swift and positive conclusion in the doctor's favor.
