Dr Carlin employs a staff that is very much a family. They are all invested in your care before during and after any procedure. No question is too outrageous or small and every concern of yours becomes his. I highly recommend him. Should the option for more stars be avaliable, I would definitely award them.

I came to Dr. Carlin following a biopsy that revealed I skin cancer. Worse still, the melanoma was on my face, something that started off as a cute birth mark on my cheek, has fixing to become “a big ugly scar” according to my dermatologist. I saught the care of Dr. Carlin to remove the melanoma and reduce the scarring.... He did a lot more than that! He neatly tucked the scar behind my jaw line. It’s been over 2 years, and what was a 8” incision line, is now a paper thin, nearly invisible line.

Dr. Car5lin is amazing. He did my cosmetic surgery several years ago and I still look wonderful. I am having another (different) procedure this week. I also go to him for fillers and Botox. My friend had a facelift done by him and she is more than pleased. He spends more than adequate time with me. I am a nurse and I would recommend him without hesitation. Thank you Dr Carlin. submitted by Laura Miller RN

In the beginning he was very nice. But when I problems after my surgery it was like he didn't care. He would play it down and seem like he was in a hurry to get out. When I ended up with a revision that left me not matching he once again played it off like it was NO big deal . (And to a patient -it is a very big deal) That is when I went to a different surgeon and had his work corrected. The new surgeon was/is awesome!!

The experience was like no other doctor/patient I've ever had. Appointments were easy to get and around my schedule. Never had to wait because they were always on time. Dr. Carlin was friendly, knowledgeable ad gave me realistic expectations of services I was obtaining. He guided me with the procedure decision to achieve the best results without milking me for services I did not need. The recovery time for my procedure was constantly monitored which gave me peace of mind. Totally Recommend him!!
