in Lawton, OK |
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 that I feel is genuine empathy. Love the patient portal! It's so awesome to pull up my medical records on my iPhone, and it's also super easy to use.

Dr Carson is the only Dr I've ever seen that treats Lupus. They do ivig treatment as well. I am transferring all my medical to Dr Carson. I'm impressed with his knowledge and experience. Everyone was so friendly. It's nice being able to draw blood, XRAYS, and pharmacy right there at my convenience!

Dr Carson is the most caring & compassionate doctor I have ever seen as a patient. He truly cares about you & your overall health. He designs a plan to treat your specific disease and if one thing doesn't work well, there are other things he will try all in an effort to help you have as healthy and active lifestyle. The care I have received from Dr Carson and his entire staff has been incredible. I highly recommend him. I certainly am better today than when I started!

Dr. Carson is amazing! His staff is knowledgeable and caring! I am so sad that my new insurance is not within his network. I would Highly recommend him or any of his PA's.

I was looking forward to scheduling an appointment with Dr. Carson after he came highly recommended by a few people in the medical field. I was told that appointments were being scheduled six months out and to call back on a certain date. Then when I called back I was told they did not have a calendar for six months out and to call back. I called back again and was told that even though they accepted my insurance I would need to pay a $200.00 fee ahead of time to hold my appointment spot!

Dr Carson is considerate, knowledgeable and will always explain any questions you have. I will never see anyone else unless they are in his office.
in Edmond, OK |
Dr Carson is the best rheumatologist in the southwest! He has excellent communication with his patients, he takes the time to really listen and stays up on all new advances in his field of medicine. His staff are kind and caring and I have never had to wait more than just a few short minutes for my appointment.
in Guthrie, OK |
I have been with Dr Carson since he was the only rheumatologist at the Oklahoma City Clinic in downtown Oklahoma City and he diagnosed my lupus 21 years ago and I will go to no other rheumatologist unless I am forced to by a change of insurance, he is that good. He is one of the kindest doctors I know and really listens to his patients. He also treats his nurses and staff with dignity and respect. He also is highly respectful of his patients religious beliefs, which is very important to me.
