Dr. Carlson practices in a pain clinic and is cocky and rude. He did not introduce himself and I felt "sold" by him. I've never had a doc make me feel so uncomfortable. I would NOT recommend this man or Arizona Pain Specialists where he practices. Both garbage. Don't waste your time or energy.

After 45 minutes, I...more
