Thanks for your feedback. We're so sorry you felt that way regarding our receptionist. The interaction with her that you described is very different than the type of feedback we've received on her from all prior patients. That said, we take you perspective seriously and we will ensure any such poor interactions will not occur in the future. If you'd like to reschedule your visit, please feel free to call our office directly. Thanks again for the feedback.

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!
