Address my dermatological problem, took care to prescribe an affordable, correct dosage ointment. Corticosteroid injection began relieving the rash right away. Topical treatment cleared up the issue in a matter of days. Also, Dr. Carlson addressed a urological concern and scheduled urinalysis.

the only thing I was not completely satisfied with was results of the thyroid test was not explained in "My Chart". it said I needed to be retested which was fine, but then it stated my diagnosis, but because I had never heard of this I had to look it up on the internet to get an explanation. Also had to ask questions and go back and forth on "My Chart" to get some answers. Felt like an explanation should have been given along with the diagnosis.
