Patient Comments (1)
Ashland, VA |
Dr Carlsen provides a comprehensive examination. When attempting to understand an issue he is very thorough...as a new patient...the exam was much more detailed than I expected. I reluctantly went at first....but the results have been truly amazing. And if there ever is an issue outside Chiropractic...he will not hesitate to direct you to the appropriate specialty. They really try to take care of you - and they do!
