I had an appointment on May 27 in Dr.Carlson office . Dr. Carlson nurse Cara was so rude on my first appointment, scared me for the injection for Carpal tunnel syndrome, she was in such a hurry she couldn’t wait to get rid of me . I thought the doctor would give me that injection and I wasn’t sure she gave me that injection and that she said if I wanted a doctor I’d have to wait another month. Very bad experience with that nurse. I heard that doctor is a very good doctor.

Dr. Carlson Is an AWESOME MAN, DR, AND FRIEND. I had the blessing of having an operation (spider plate 10 screws) performed by his Mentor/Teacher = Dr. Seth Dodds (Yale) 2013. When it came time for a needed 3rd operation (Ulnar Right Wrist replacement), I could not have been more pleased and ASSURED to have had Dr. E. Carlson perform the surgery. He is kind, compassionate, understanding, and Professional. The most important aspect of a patient Doctor relationship is that they CARE about you. He does!!! I cannot tell you the feeling of having an injury, fear, and the feeling of an whole world against you only to have your Dr say "NO WORRIES"!!!!! TY Dr Carlson for caring about me. DN

saw him for a fractured ankle in June - he did the initial surgery but advised me due to the extent of my injury to see a trauma specialist- I commend him for this as did the trauma specialist- thank you!
