Dr. Carlson is an exceptional physician. I would see him for everything if I could. He took the time to answer my questions. Not a doctor that will beat around the bush or just tell you what you want to hear... but he will fix you! Doesn't recommend surgery unless absolutely needed!

Dr. Carlson treated me with disrespect and belittled me at office visit. He questioned why I was even there though it was his office who said I needed to schedule a follow up appointment with him. He told me that my teenage pregnancy was an example of what was wrong with the world, and he criticized the amount of medication I was on. I left that appointment crying and I will never go back to him and I would never recommend him to someone else.

I have never left a review for a doctor but I will in this case. Dr Carlson is awesome!! We came for my 10 month old son who has an undescended testicle. We were nervous about the appointment and he was very down to earth and is HILARIOUS! I will recommend him to anyone and everyone. I wish he was our primary doctor.

Just finished my first apt with this doctor, he is both incredible and amazing. He is conservative, very personable, took plenty of time to explain my case to me and the solutions, but most notable he was not in a hurry to rush off. He will tell you how it is, not sugar coat the facts and will talk with and not at you. My only wish is he was my primary care. If I could provide a higher recommendation he would be 10 stars! Great job Doc, truly thank you!!

I met Dr. Carlson in the ER late one night with a large kidney stone. He was able to schedule me the following day for lithotripsy. Dr. Carlson is an easy-going man and made me comfortable every step of the way for my first "major" procedure. While, I hope I don't deal with this again anytime soon, I would not hesitate for a second to return to Dr. Carlson.
