Patient Comments (2)

My first impression was very bad, during my appointment with him, he came late. He has no respect for people's time. Very unprofessional , had a very bad attitude. He seems like he does not know what he is doing. Very sad that he is working at the VA.

I was very disappointed with dr. Carson he is not compassionate or caring he's rude, seems to have a God complex and likes to humiliate people. He is very unprofessional and without a doubt the worst doctor I've ever seen and it saddens me that he works for the VA
