I would recommend Dr. Carlson to anyone seeking caring, professional medical care. Dr. Carlson goes above and beyond to explain to his patients the details of their current medical situations. And he does so in language you can understand. He follows up on his treatment plans and provides you with a summary of your current visit. He treats each patient as an individual (not just another statistic).

I highly recommend Dr. Tim Carlson. When you first walk into his office the staff is very friendly and everything was neat and clean. My first visit with Dr. Carlson was like no other.... he actually took the time to listen to what I had to say and had an actual conversation with me, unlike most doctor visits where the Dr. walks into the room, asks a quick question and is onto the next patient. If you are looking for a quality doctor that is actually concerned about your health, see Dr. Carlson

Dr. Carlson is by far the best doctor I've seen! His bedside manner can't be beat! His staff is fantastic and after just one visit, they'll all know you by name. I've recommended Dr. Carlson to many people in my short time here simply because of how great I think the practice is as a whole. The office manager, Danielle, is also just awesome! If you're looking for a quality physician, look no further!

This is the best experience I've had with any doctor in the area. He is a great guy with great personality. He treats his patients with the utmost respect and his office staff was also great! The environment was very comfortable and they actually care about their patients! A very rare thing, especially in the pinellas county area! The wait time was really short and they were quick to get me in and out without any kind of hassle! I definitely will recommend this place to everyone!

Dr. Carlson is hands down the BEST doctor. He gets you back in the room without any wait times. He takes the time to talk to you as a person and a patient.

Anytime I need anything or have a question, they have the answer and always call back when they say they are going to. His office is a very calming and soothing en

He has been my primary physician for yrs. and is highly unusual in that he has been able to master the art of engaging the patient, to the point of leading us to believe it is possible that there are yet physicians who have maintained their humanity and who can put their patients at ease, while leading us along the path to better health, as opposed to the more common detached behavior of many professionals in the field of healthcare. Kudos, Dr. Carlson!
in St. Petersburg, FL |
Dr. Carlson is professional, caring and advocates for his patients like no other physician I have ever met. I have been thru some very serious health issues and the doctor has always been there for me, always helping me find solutions to difficult health issues. Very caring, listens and helps to keep me healthy! Thanks, Dr. Tim Carlson
in St Petersburg, FL |
We are extremely satisfied with the care received and trust him highly to make the right decision for treatment at the earliest possible moment. His caring for patients is evident by the way he answers questions understandable to lay people.
in St Petersburg, FL |
Dr Carlson is a breath of fresh air. He is what a doctor should be. He truly cares about the patient. He takes his time, explains everything, and he (DR. CARLSON) called and set up a referral, while I was in his office. I have never seen a doctor do that, he really does go the extra mile for patients. I have never had a more positive experience with a doctor, than I did with Dr. Carlson. I changed doctors 3 time this past year because of poor health care. CARLSON IS THE BEST.
in St Petersburg, FL |
I have been a patient if Dr Carlson's for 3 years. He is a straight forward honest Doctor, who genuinely cares for his patients. Reminds me of the little town Doctor that remembers everything about you and your family, which makes you feel I am a valuable patient. I love that he has found a medical office with staff that are friendly, caring and quick, which is a 360 degree difference from his previous office.
in Saint Petersburg, FL |
What a great practice and Doctor. I would refer them to all my family and friends!
in St Petersburg, FL |
Possibly the best general physician I have every seen. He is caring, concerned and professional. The complete package with a bedside manner. This comes from his earlier career as a nurse...he knows people.
