Dr Carlson has been following me since I had repair of retinal hole. He is thorough and proffessional. He alway takes the time to discuss any issues and treatment. You are never rushed or ignored. His office staff are always kind and welcoming. I was seen within 5 minutes of arrival.

My husband has a rare eye disease and we were extremely scared that he was going to lose vision in that eye. We thought he may lose his job if that happened. We were so scared and went to see Dr. Carlson. He was amazing!! He stayed late and did laser surgery the same day. He saved his vision!! We go for frequent check ups and he is absolutely wonderful. I'm so grateful for him and the wonderful job that he did. The staff has been great and friendly as well. We're so happy that we were referred.

I recommend Dr. Carlson to my family and my friends, because I was quite nervous about my eye condition; my vision. He not only made me fee comfortable and at ease so I didn't worry so much anymore, but he also explained things very thoroughly during the examination and treatment. I would want my family and friends to have the same experience if they had issues that affects their vision.
