My second surgery with Dr Carlow First was an ankle reconstruction Never had another issue after surgery (23 years ago) So when my shoulder was giving me issues I of course I went to Dr Carlow Yes I had to wait in the office more than 15 minutes but I didn't mind one bit When you want the best , you wait Even his staff was very helpful with insurance questions I recommend Dr Carlow to anyone looking for the best solution to pain He doesnt jump to surgery which I liked A Plus rating

I have a swollen left knee from yrs of wear and tear and decided to see Dr Carlow. I brought my X-ray and results from a previous visit with my primary physician. Dr. Carlow has excellent bedside manner and explained what was going on with my knee joint. I'm very happy with my treatment. However, I waited for at least 45 minutes in the waiting room before I was called into one of the examination room. I feel that a patient should not wait more than 15 minutes to see a doctor.

Didn't listen well at all, rushed through appointment and gave generic handout saying come back again if pain persists. Ignoring that what I described I have been doing was what his handout described. Extremely frustrating visit
