Can’t say enough about Dr Paul. He is a phenom diagnostician. He has been our Doctor for our family for many years. He is always on the ready to help us....making us feel as if we are very special patients. We trust him and love him and his wife Kris, who manages the practice. They are extraordinary in this day and time for giving personal care.

At 68, I’m probably his oldest patient. His practice focuses on pediatrics, but he’s also an emergency room physician, so he’s seen just about everything. He does not rush his patients and spends unhurried time addressing all their questions. He doesn’t take Medicare, but that’s fine with me. His charges are reasonable and I’d much rather pay out-of-pocket for sound advice than have Medicare pay for visits to someone who runs a patient mill. Dr. Carstens must be a voracious reader because he is always well-versed on current medical issues and treatments. He and his office manager (his wife) are wonderful people who go out of their way to provide a warm, welcoming environment.
