Basically told me that women who have children shouldn't run anymore and he told me outright that my body would be shot after 40 so it didn't matter after that.

Dr Carlson has replaced both of my knees, plus he removed scar tissue from one. He is good at listening and explaining everything. He also has a delightful personality! His staff is also excellent.

Aug 27 2019

Review for Dr. Brent Carlson, MD

He will take your money and laugh all the way to the bank with it. He treats staff like garbage and everyone is below him. Definitely scroll down a bit and check his background info. These are very relevant to how he is today and how he continues to treat his patients.
