Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Carson Jr "I have a small boutique style of practice and evaluate every patient myself. I do not use physicians assistants or nurse practitioners and I establish an "old-fashioned" style of patient-physician relationship with every patient. I am a Tampa native and have practiced in the same location for over 30 years. I have authored numerous articles in national journals and textbooks and have been selected as a "Best Doctor in America" every year since 2003."
