      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
