I can't get pregnant without the help of modern medicine. After suffering a second trimester loss and working with a different ob who said they wouldn't help us get pg again we went to Dr. Carlson who had actually ended up delivering our first child. He was very supportive and if it weren't for him we wouldn't have our bundle. Dr. Carlson is kind, considerate, passionate, and I recommend him to anybody. He is truly the best.

Dr. Carlson has been my doc and delivered both of my children. I not only consider him the most professional Doctor I've had. His level of patient care and personal pride in positive patient relationships has far surpassed any doctor I have seen of known.
