I first met with Dr Carlson on October 23 2018 at his office in Memorial Hospital. I came to him because of a 70 percent blocked carotid artery in my neck and perforated ulcers in the descending aorta and the right groin area. He asked me to give him about 10 days to go over everything including tests from Mayo Clinic. I wanted to be home if anything needed to be done hence Dr Carlson. Well it now 11/18/18 no call. Going to Denver Wednesday to meet with real doctors at Porter Hospital

Dr Carlson has performed two surgeries on me, each for tumors on my carotid arteries. He explained everything well, and I came through the surgeries with no problems.
