Dr. Carlsen is an extraordinary Ophthalmologist! He completely transformed my 7 year old little girl! Extropia Strabismous is a condition where the eyes turn slightly inward, thanks to Dr. Carlsen her eyes look AMAZING! Thank you for being a God send! Unfortunately, others say your bedside manners are bad, in Tri-Cities, people are lonely & seek only someone to TALK to! Your busy because your the best! I seek RESULTS, I have a problem and you focused on the SOLUTION! Thank you! GOD BLESS- Lisa

excellent office visit and surgery
in Kingsport, TN |
I was in the office for 4 hours and saw him less than ten minutes. He spent little time looking at my son, and nonchalantly told me my 10 month old needed glasses. I have since had 2 other ophthalmologists see my son for full exams. Both found an identical prescription with my son's vision, independent of each other. They were adamant that my son did NOT need glasses and could not understand how Dr. Carlsen arrived at that prescription. Please go to a different ophthalmologist.
