Dr. Carlson performed heart surgery on my father~in~law last year and we were elated.....not only with his ability to do a perfect procedure, but his kindness and care as he met with us afterwards and explained what went on in the O.R. I felt like he treated "Larry" as if he were his only patient!...Read More
