Dr. Carlson was friendly, professional, caring, concise, and knowledgeable. He explained everything during his physical examination in what he was doing, and surprised me when he offered to administer a shot to ease the pain in my shoulder. He was very easy to hear as l have a severe hearing loss! I look forward to having Dr. Carlson be my personal physician!!

I have never had anyone speak to me the way Dr. Carlson did in my last visit. he has shown me no empathy or even interest for my pain. I learned a long time ago to only expect medicine refills and an occasional steroid shot when allergies act up. I will never return to him and would never recommend him to anyone.

I don't have faith in the doctor. He just gives pills for any ailment I have. He doesn't tell me when I need a procedure, such as mammogram, colonoscapy, etc. I would like to find another doctor.

Most of my visit was with a new doctor that was assisting Dr. Carlson. I told the new doctor I thought I had an inguinal hernia, neither doctor looked at it. My blood test only tested for glucose and A1c. I felt that I should have had a lipid panel and PSA test based on my family history (I have the BRAC 1 gene) that I expressed concern about during my appointment.

I usually have good comments but this time I waited 30 minutes and then felt he rushed through my time. I came in for two issues. one was ignored. one acknowledged the issue but didn't provide much suggestions. once he referred me to someone he moved on with no help to get me to the appointment.
