What People Say About Dr. Brian Carlson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Received a call today that my appointment has been cancelled - for the THIRD TIME - and every time it's because the doctor will be working at the Hospital and unavailable for patients. This seems to be totally incompetent and inefficient on the physician's part. Doesn't he care that someone is waiting for months for each appointment and that to have them cancelled time and again does a huge dis-service to the patient??!! I have worked in healthcare and understand the challenges, but this is bad.

We were lucky you get Dr Carlson when my husband was admitted as an emergency at sunrise hospital. Not only did he take great care of him but he was kind, compassionate and a great communicator to his family. He will be my husband's GI doctor from now on! Recommend highly.

I was sent to see Dr. Carlson for having a high (304) amylase level. I had and Xray, swallowed a camera and had an MRI done of my abdomen. After I swallowed a camera, Dr. Carlson nor anyone in his office called me. I waited two weeks after the MRI to contact his office. He still had not read the test results as of July 6th and he got the results on June 26th. I picked up my results and I have a 16x13 T2 Hyperintense mass on my liver. I still have not heard from his office 7/10/17
