Review for Dr. Virginia Klair, MD

Dr Carlson has been my cardiologist for many years. He is very patient with all of my questions and he explains things in a way that I can understand. I never feel like he is trying to rush me through my appt so he can get onto the next one. The office staff that works with him is great as well!

Be very careful. She is a poor communicator with terrible bedside manner. She wants to perform extensive and unneeded surgeries which are not recommended by other surgeons. Get a second opinion.

Review for Dr. Christopher Gallus, DO

Dr Gallus was informative and compassionate before, during and after my surgery. He did fantastic job on my L4/L5 surgery. After 18 months of intensive physical therapy had failed to get me back to full activity, surgery was the next step, and I was in good hands with Dr Gallus.

Review for Dr. Christopher Gallus, DO

Thanks for the excellent care and personal feedback. I will always be thankful that you knew about Dr. David Wong and called him immediately when I was having such horrible back pain. Lisa, so glad you survived your accident too. Pat

I went to Dr. Nelson as a second opinion, and I ended up having my surgery with him. He didn't make me any promises but I trusted him and I'm glad I did because I had a really great outcome.
