What People Say About Dr. Mark Carlson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Lots of writing of notes during visits but items not followed up. I had to remind doc. Incompetence of insurance approvals and referrals. After viewing records, I found health issues noted that were not true and inaccurate records. Concierge service is lacking. The two times I called for services after hours in several years had “ no return call” without a second call from me and “ no RX called in” when leaving town. Total disregard and no acknowledgement or apologies afterwords.

I've been a patient of Dr. Carlson for about six years. I have been delighted in his concierge service. I have had excellent access to the Doctor when I needed help. I think he has a staff that is great. The front desk people and his nurses (who answer the questions) have been great.
