Doctor Carlson was extremely professional and made me feel comfortable seeing a doctor for super personal reasons. He was quick to see me. Getting labs back was fast. I have actually been his patient on quite a few occasions, as well as my children, over the years. He has been on it while diagnosing the issue I came for. Usually I leave a doctor's visit feeling worried, unheard and even confused. But he definitely gave me time to explain what was going on and let me ask questions to clarify. I would recommend Dr.Carlson to my friends and family, for sure!

I went to the walk-in clinic for a UTI. It was very quick to be put in an exam room. I gave a urine sample. Nurse/medical assistance was great. Got my vitals quickly. The doctor came in soon after nurse left the room. Dr. Carlson said I had blood in my urine. He asked if I had any allergies. He sent an RX to the Kaiser pharmacy and we were done. Saw the doctor for maybe 5-10 minutes. I was at the clinic for about 20 minutes total.

Dr. Carlson was very personable and friendly, and didn't hesitate to prescribe the right medicines so we could start getting some relief and recovering from walking pneumonia.

Dr. Carlson was very nice, and went over the results of the tests that he ordered for me. I left feeling less stressed. The wait to see him was not terribly long, and he spent time with me answering my questions.

Thumb and circular saw got to close. Dr. Carlson had to rewrap the wound. He’s shown how knowledgeable he is. Conversation was clear and easy to understand. I wouldn’t mind him for my personal doctor. Mike Cervera

Dr. Carlson nailed my diagnosis based upon a stomach X-ray alone whereas the specialists ended up running numerous other tests to confirm the twist (volvulus) of my colon. He knew I needed urgent, emergency care, and made an immediate connection, sending me to where I could get that appropriate care.
