Dr. Carlson is thoughtful, intelligent and kind. He always takes the time to help me understand everything that is going on and honestly listens to what I share with him...this seems to bean uncommon trait among physicians these days.

Dr. Carlson was knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. He was responded well to all my concerns. Extremely positive experience with him. His staff excellent, as well.

Dr. Carlson asks all the right questions and answers all of mine. He pays attention and give options to me. Lucky for me, I'm an active, healthy person. Because that is generally the case, I rarely go to the doctor's office. But, just in case that goes sideways, I'm happy to have Dr. Carlson helping me.
