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.
