Care Philosophy

Having a family doctor means having a doctor who knows you. You shouldn't be just a nameless face in the crowd hoping for the best. My eyes can tell me a lot, but my ears can tell me more because listening and healing go hand in hand.

This doctor is extremely rude, and unprofessional. He is abrupt and condescending. Also his clinical skills are poor.

Great bedside manner. Friendly staff. Easy to make an appointment. I waited less than 30 minutes to be called back and to be seen.

I've been a patient of Dr.Carlson's for almost 25 years. He's a great doctor! He has great "bed side" manners, very friendly, knowledgeable, listens to you as a patient & an over all caring doctor. There's times when I've moved out of the area but yet still I drive the distance to keep him as my doctor. I trust him completely!!

My entire family has been seeing Dr. Carlson since 1990. He has a terrific personality and takes his time with every patient.

I have been a patient of r. David W. Carlson for 30 years. He has been extremely professional and I have complete trust of him and his medical staff. His front office staff can be a little frustrating at times, but the medical care that I receive is always fantastic. If there is something that I need referral to, he has always steered me to the right specialists that have taken care of me.

i thought I was going to a regular doctor, but this establishment is a money-making machine. With the mixture of a family practice and an urgent care center, and the wait time of the hospital emergency room, this place is a nightmare.The doctor is only so-so, not nice, not really caring because of the amount of people he sees.If you need a McDoctor and have a day to kill, this is your place. If not, find a doctor who cares about his patients enough to really listen to them.

Caring and thorough, I like Dr. Carlson better than any doctor I've had since the 80's. His quick response saved my life from an extremely virulent form of Prostate Cancer. I would recommend him to anyone.
