I recommend Dr. Stephen Carlson to everyone. I have total trust in his ability to the best a doctor can do and if hes stumped..hes not afraid to admit it and refer to someone he trusts. Hes very easy to talk with and explains things in language the average person can understand.

I saw Dr. Carlson when he practiced in a suburb of Minneapolis, early in his career. He demonstrated kindness & patience w/my difficult health condition(s). Consequently, I was disappointed when he announced he was moving to Duluth. Though I have switched to alternative medicine to successfully treat my health, I would strongly recommend him. He is competent & conscientious. Since he moved, I can't offer appropriate ratings on the office.
