I liked this guy at one time. I was in pain and wanted to discuss unusual leg pain but he kind of blew me off. Said that I should get some compression hose and I replied that I had been wearing them for 10 years. Anyway ,I wonder if one gets older that one is not taken very seriously. I shall done the PT routine and tried to follow suggestions with good luck but I came away yesterday with a negative feeling and not so satisfied.

Dr. Carlson listened to my concerns, and identified a high potential for a kidney stone as a result of my pain and past history. He immediately ordered a urinalysis which identified blood in my urine. He then approved a Urologist appointment which was important in identifying a kidney stone blockage of my ureter.
