Dr. Carlson has been instrumental in giving me my life back. He has taken care of me for many years. I have had two spinal surgeries and still have residual pain. Together we have explored many options for helping me reduce my pain such as epidurals, ablations, medication management & most recently spinal cord stimulation. He is a big believer in treating the whole patient and therefore keeps a close eye on my overall health, including my emotional well being. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Carlson may be a great pain doctor but you have to see him first. I never did. I filled all my forms out, came in on time, gave my insurance info, and then sat in a hard wooden chair for over an hour. As someone with chronic pain, sitting like this is almost impossible. After 45 minutes, I Told an MA I needed to leave in 30 minutes for another appointment. They were "waiting for a room", but a dozen patients came in and were seen as I sat. I finally left after 75 min without being seen.

I was in extreme pain when I went to my 1st appt. but did not ask for any pain meds. When I went to my second appt. I basically was told I was lying about my pain. They did not even take the time to check out what was wrong with me or give me the chance to tell them I had gone to a neurologist. Actually I had 2 crushed vertebrae, a fractured rib, I was bleeding internally and had severe neurological issues. I have never been treated so badly by a doctors office. There is so much more I could say

This was the first time in my life I ever saw a doctor who did not speak to me - at all. I was wheeled into the procedure room, Dr. Carlson was talking to someone about golf, and the only thing he said to me the entire time was, Little pinch when he injected the local. Otherwise, he didn't explain, greet, say good-bye, discuss or speak to me, period.
