      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.

      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.

      Dr. Carlson's 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.
