Terrible experience after procedure. 1st off I would like to start by saying that Dr Carlson and his staff are excellent. He performed shoulder surgery for me and he did an amazing job from the consultation, during surgery and through follow up. My terrible experience starts after the procedure. I never received a bill or phone call from the office to make payment. I received all of the other bills (hospital, anesthesiologist, medication, etc) but nothing from the Dr's office. My wife even com

My first orthopedic surgeon retired and I was wired about finding a new. I have had 9 knee surgeries, 4 rotator cuff surgeries so I understand my needs. After falling off a cliff while mountain biking my hip was killing me. My regular doctor recommended Dr. Carlson and I was very impressed. Bottom line is he fixed my hip and is fixing a torn bicep tendon, and in November will fix my other hip. Doc is friendly and very, very knowledgable. Very impressed with him and highly recommend him.

What a jerk!!! My elderly mother was assigned to this doctor in the hospital after she fell and severely hurt her legs. When she went back in to see him, she was left to sit in a wheelchair for one hour waiting for him in his office. That length of time caused severe pain in her legs. When she told this guy that her legs were hurting and why he looked at her and said, "Your darn lucky you didn't have to wait for 3 hours!" He is extremely arrogant and I would never let her go back to him!

Dr. Michael Carlson completed an ACL reconstruction for me. He is very knowledgable and has the ability to help you completely understand the injury, the anatomy involved, and the recovery process. He was very kind and patient explaining needed information. He performed an amazing operation. He did a fantastic job and I haven't had any problems with my knee. I am currently playing soccer, hiking, running again! . I would definitely recommend him to anyone! Best ortho surgeon in Utah!

Dr Carlson would probably be a good doctor if he wasn't associated with Revere Health. Revere follows the Canadian model. It took my wife 3 weeks for them to SCHEDULE an appointment that was an ADDITIONAL 3 weeks from when they finally got around to it. And then Revere rushes doctors from patient to patient. Time from Physical Therapy referral to doctor visit: 6 weeks. Time with doctor once seen: 5 minutes. Thanks Revere. If my insurance would let me go elsewhere, I wouldn't hesitate to do so.
