in Buffalo, MN |
It has been 17 years since Dr. Carlson performed lasik on both of my eyes. Great work, great results. No complications, still 20/20 at 62 years of age. Thanks to Dr. Carlson!
in Villard, MN |
I attempted to inquire about my bill (not the cost but two items on my bill that I didnt know what they were). After talking to 2 people in his office at 2 different times, Dr. Carlson called me and SCREAMED at me over the phone WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO? I was in the car with my husband and he heard Dr. Carlson plain as day! To say I was shocked by his call is putting it mildly and I still DO NO have answers to my questions. And again it is NOT about the money involved.
