Garfield, NJ |
I was running late because of traffic and I called ahead of time to let the girl know I will be 15 mins late and when I showed up she did not allow me to see the doctor even though I voiced that I desperately needed too. The front desk girl Elaine was one of the rudest receptionists I have ever encountered. It is a really bad representation about the doctor and it was such a shame because I was recommended to see Dr. Carlson because she is very good but I will not be returning ever again.

I've been seeing Dr.Carlson for alittle over a year, since I had my daughter. She is the most caring doctor. She manages all my health issues, and when I'm sick there is no wait time she sees me right away. She is so caring and kind!

If you are looking for a very knowledgeable doctor, who takes the time to get to know you and treats you as a whole person, look no further.

I actually followed Dr. Carlson from her other practice. I think she is a wonderful Dr. Before you even start the appt, she brings you to her office and goes over any health concerns. Then she does an exam. She really listens and takes everything you say seriously. She is a very thorough D., and doesn't rush. You can also contact her through her portal where she will respond back to you personally. I feel so lucky to have such a competent and excellent Dr, and highly recommend her.

in Ridgefield, NJ |
?My first appointment with Dr. Carlson was yesterday and already I?ve recommended him to five friends. I had the sense that she REALLY cared about my whole being and not just the fact that I needed a physical exam and some other work done.
in Midland Park, NJ |
