What People Say About Dr. John Carson, MD
Reply
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
