Excellent Doctor. Takes time needed to fully explain you situation, treatment options, and developed a practical and understandable treatment plan.

Dr. Michael G. Carlson is a Endocrinologist, Diabetis and Metabolism Specialist in Tri Star Medical Group - THE FRIST CLINIC. Doctor Carlson has treated me for bone density problems for many years and his treatment with Prolia has kept my skeleton strong and I am living a totally independent life without requiring care of any kind. Thank you, Dr. Carlson! Waldi Mizell

I would recommend Dr. Carlson to family and friends without hesitation.

I have been a patient of Dr. Carlson for many years. He has taken extremely good care of me and helps me keep my A1C right where it should be. He takes his time with me and addresses any concerns I might have on every office visit I have. My wife, who now has type 2 diabetes, is also a patient of Dr. Carlson.

A FRIEND OF A FRIEND RECOMMENDED DR. CARLSON TO ME WHEN I WAS HAVING DIFFICULTY GETTING MY DIABETES UNDER CONTROL. HE WAS A LIFESAVER. AT THE CLINIC I FELT LIKE THE DOCTORS REALLY LISTENED TO ME AND THOUGHT OF ME AS A PARTNER IN MY QUEST TO GET HEALTHY. WORKING TOGETHER ON A PROGRAM DESIGNED JUST FOR ME HAS MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN GETTING GOOD RESULTS. MY LAST CHECKIP WAS AWESOME. SO FAR, I'VE HAD NO COMPLICATIONS FROM MY DIABETES. THANKS, DR.CARLSON AND STAFF!!
in Spring Hill, TN |
Terrible bedside manner, extremely condescending and overall the worst Doctor I've been to. Doesn't know how to listen to patients. I would've been better off had I not ever went to see him.
in White House TN |
Great staff. Very easy to talk to and explains things in depth for you.
in Nashville tn |
He was totally disconnected during our visit. Lack of care as a physician is totally inexcusable! I had to have multiple test redone because he failed to collect the right amount of sample from my thyroid. needless to say the cost doubled! I believe the public would be best served if doctors such as him left their practice and let caring physicians do their job!
in Nashville, TN |
I was pleased with his manner and communication as well as followup on my thyroid levels.
