What People Say About Dr. Douglas Carlon, MD
Reply Flag
I have no clue about Dr Carlon. I never made it that far because the staff was not helpful, rude. And that made me uncomfortable to want to take my 15yr old daughter there if that is what I would have to deal with. The female on the phone said she didn't believe my doctor sent the referral a month ago, also she said I needed my primary referral I have PPO. Rube about alot. That was when I could even get ahold of them. it was 6wks now my daughter is suffering, time to go elsewhere
