I am very happy with Dr. Carlson's expertise and trust him with my care, overall. However, Dr. Carlson does not respect my patient right to choose which provider I use for such services as a gym or medical equipment. He seems to have a link with adjacent services and has pressured me to use only them on several occasions, including instructing his staff to "walk me over" to one of them against my will. Also, prescription faxes are always super slow to reach my pharmacy.

Absolutely nothing was accomplished when going for a physical. I was weighed with clothes on by the worst nurse I've ever encountered which resulted in my BMI being high. I'm 165 lbs and 5'10 but he deemed me overweight. He prescribed me something I told him before I wouldn't take bc of risks and then "left out" 2 Rx's I actually needed. He didn't listen at all. Go somewhere else. Unless you want a headache...that he can't help you with. Nice man, no help whatsoever.
