Doctor Christine's clinical emphasis is in the treatment and management of difficult cases, pregnancies, and children. She is an advocate of utilizing conservative options for the treatment of most chronic and acute symptoms.

About the Staff

Chloe Russell

Every great office needs a Texas cowgirl and Chloe is  here to represent.  She has the caring heart of a nurse who makes the FCCSP patient experience welcoming and complete.

Carlo St. Juste, L-Ac

Carlo's technique is gentle and conservative, and as we say in acupuncture..."to the point".  His treatments are congruent with FCCSP's emphasis on restoring function to the body, and to the organs, so that an individual can be restored to activity and life.

FCCSP is proud to have a wonderful staff of therapists and practitioners.  Our vision would not be complete without each of our staff member's contribution to this organization.  We are grateful for the workplace family that has formed over the years.

Jessica helps with complex billing and insurance issues that patients encounter.  She is Dr. Christine's helpful hand, and insurance companies don't want to mess with her...at least over the phone :)

Dr. Christine Smith
