“I treat every patient as if they are a family member,” says Dr. Ronald Christianson, a diagnostic radiologist.
He says he went into medicine because “it combines science and interacting with people.”
Dr. Christianson has enjoyed a diverse career during which he’s combined science and that interaction with people.
He earned his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, then spent 13 years in the Air Force. He completed an internal medicine internship at Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. He also received aerospace medicine training while in San Antonio.
Dr. Christianson spent two years as a flight surgeon at Vandenburg Air Force Base in California, helping to rescue civilians from shipwrecks and plane crashes. He also was a space shuttle flight surgeon and helped develop the shuttle program at Vandenburg. He was a flight surgeon during Operation Desert Storm in the early 1990s.
“I lived all over the world with the military,” he says. “I came back to Wisconsin for the quality of the schools and for the seasons.”
Wisconsin is home for Dr. Christianson, who grew up in Jefferson in southern Wisconsin and Wausau in central Wisconsin. He enjoys weightlifting, golf and watching sports.
