I met Dr Carson and PA Shawna, back in 2018. Shawna listened & seemed to be interested at first but Dr Carson didn’t. He invaded my personal space & basically told me I was too young to have so many problems. He glanced at my paperwork & said he thought I’d “get over this”. He never really touched...Read More

I've been seeing his PA Sheril Matthews for several years, and not totally satisfied with her. I will request to see a different provider. I'm not...Read More

I saw Dr Carson since 2001. He is very caring, knowledgeable and listens. The problems started when I could no longer see Dr Carson, but saw his PA Sherril. I was not at all impressed with her. Now I am trying another rheumatologist.. I would give Dr Carson 5 Stars, but Sherril maybe 1 Star.

I felt like this was the first doctor and PA to hear me and truly understand how I felt! Eric, my PA for Dr Carson, is my lifeline. I have SLE and PsA, tested positive for other AI like RA and scleroderma. They helped me see a lifelong historical picture that explained so much. I love the care...Read More
