    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.
