He is a fantastic surgeon with an incredible patient focus! He does both surgical oncology and plastic surgery and is expert in his work. It is clear that he loves what he does. When he got the results indicating that I did not need chemo, he was as excited as we were and he enthusiastically shared them with us immediately.

everything the other reviewers said and more. I was diagnosed with BC and I was overwhelmed, scared, anxious and unhappy with the 1st surgeon I saw. Dr. Carlson is kind, thoughtful, patient, knowledgeable and experienced. He has excellent bedside manners, is just as kind to my husband and always has time for his patients even when he is super busy. He has a way of knowing exactly what you want even when you don't know what you want.. So relieved he performed my dbl mastectomy!

Dr. Carlson operated on my cancerous melanoma, located under my chin. His knowledge and understanding was very evident and his surgery was perfect. He had great skill to calm me, and assure me that all would be fine.

Ten years ago I had a skin sparing mastectomy followed by a silicone implant. In 2016, my implant ruptured and I wanted it replaced along with a reduction of my other breast which was now a DD or E......due to weight gain and age. The implant side was a full C. After researching doctors in Georgia I choose Dr Carlson and after my first consultation, I was sure I made the right choice!!! He loves his job and it shows. I am VERY HAPPY with the outcome and he was too! Ur right Dr carlson, I owe u!!

Dr. Carlson is absolutely incredible. His bedside manner makes you feel like you're his only patient. And his level of surgical work is completely unmatched. He performed a bilateral mastectomy and immediate reconstruction on me, and did an incredible job. Any other doctor who has done a breast exam is shocked at how amazing his work is.

Dr. Carlson is a wonderful physician. He listens to you and your questions, answers them in ways you can understand and has a way of reassuring you that its all going to be alright. I am so happy and lucky to have him as my physician.
