I loved Dr. Carlson! She really listened to me. I had cataract surgery on both of my eyes in Dec. 2015 and saw her for strabismus. Unfortunately, I was unable to have the surgery to correct the strabismus at that time, but I will certainly go back to her when I am able to have that surgery. She is a doctor I trust, and I have had to see many doctors over the years. I also worked in the medical field for 25 years.
My 10 year old son, has some anxiety with some medical visits. My other three boys don't have this issue. So when my son began to panic, Dr. Carlson was impatient and rude. She was not professional at all. And she does this for a living? I can't believe our pediatrician recommended this Dr. We complained to our pediatrician. How do I give zero stars?
My sincerest apology for your experience. It is always our highest concern to provide honest, thorough, and compassionate care.
