Never. He is so full of himself. His procedure has limited my mobility. He is not professional, calling himself the butt dr. He put a seton in me and it didn’t work. Wouldn’t remove it so now I am crippled. HP save us from this monster. I should have reported him to the state health board years ago. Please prevent him from maiming more women.

Terrible bedside manner. Isn't courteous. Doesn't take time to answer patients questions. Doesn't listen to concerns of family members caring for the patient. Withholding important information in regards to possible causes and screening of the problem, until pressed to discuss it. I do not recommend this doctor.

Awful experience w/ Dr. Carlson beginning when he walked in & said "Hi, I'm the plumber." During the pre-procedure he left the door open, told me that I was 50% more likely than average to get colon cancer and scolded me for not coming in sooner (although I came as soon as my doctor recommended and insurance would pay) and during the procedure he said "the meds SHOULD kick in by the time we get to your colon" and inserted the scope. The meds did not kick in!!!! He made me feel like livestock.
