Don't be late for your appointment, you'll get sent home. How many times have you sat waiting for the doctor to come in to the exam room? Your time is worth nothing. Be late here and party's over. Good luck!

I have had both knees replaced by Dr. Carlson. He also treated a broken foot. My last knee replacement was Oct. 24th of this year. Dr Carlson is a very competent surgeon. I was back on my knee quickly and with little pain. I would gladly recommend him for any orthopedic needs.
