What People Say About Dr. Michelle Carlson, MD

Unless you’re a top notch athlete playing for the nba or nfl, get ready to be treated like second rate garbage. I was notified by letter that after months and months of waiting to have my surgery scheduled that this hack would no longer be treating me as a patient. Her bed side mannerism is lacking, her staff is all over the place and has no clue what they are doing. They mess up scheduling and fees every visit. It’s a mess. I’ve nevwr felt more disrespected. That’s American healthcare for ya.

Her diagnosis was very accurate and her surgery was completely successful without complications. I now have full use of my right hand and am totally pain free unlike before I consulted with her. She does an impressively thorough hand examination and does not just rely on imaging as some clinicians do.
