Hi all I wanted to give my testimony with Dr. Jonathon Carlson as my neurosurgeon. I had him for over 3 years doing routine checkups and so forth. (Each visit very thorough! He really listens to you when it comes to your symptoms). I recently had my 1st brain surgery with Dr. Carlson and Pam McCloud on the 7th of January. My tumor is extremely rare and location even more rare.. (epidermoid cyst wrapping around my brain stem (nerves and arteries intertwining tumor)). Dr. Carlson is extremely confident and optimistic when it comes down to his patients. NOT ONLY did he remove my full tumor, but he also made it to where I didn't have to have titanium plate put in due to location of bone he removed was more downward neck. Amazing!! My symptoms right now are very much so doable! If my tumor grew back I know I would go to him again in a heartbeat! Thank you Dr. Carlson and Pam McCloud you guys are the true heroes here.. not only did y'all give me hope again, but you also saved my life!

Dr Carlson performed my aunt's DBS surgery last year for treating dystonia 8 years s/p-CVA so the outcome was uncertain. We knew that going in, but her mobility was so limited, it was worth the risk. I am thrilled to report that with ongoing PT, she is doing exceptionally well and is able to perform many ADLs independently now that she previously needed assistance for! Dr Carlson, Pam McCleod, and the whole DBS team have been phenomenal throughout this ordeal and we're so thankful!

I have already recommended Dr. Carlson and his associates to several people. Not just friends and family, but even to people I hardly know who have spinal damage. A close friend of mine had surgery with another doctor from this group and also had a very successful outcome. Thank you for your great care.

The surgical team performed two (2) spinal PT credited within one year. Dr Carlson hit homeruns on both. Just as important was his "bedside manner". His associate team were phenomenal during pre-op and post-op treatment. Pam McCloud was rock in my recovery.

Dr. Carlson did an amazing job on my discectomy. I had seen him for about a year before I decided that all other options were exhausted and I was ready for surgery. He made sure it was the last option and I was glad he did. He and his staff did a great job up to, during and after surgery. I had the surgery end of March and although I have a slight desk job, I was back in under 2 weeks! Today I had my 4th month check-up and it went well. I had great expereinces with all the staff members as well.
