Here`s what Dr. Carlson's patients think
I would definitely recommend Dr. Carlson!
Great bedside manner. He listened well to my symptoms and gave me a few conservative options to help. He didn’t pressure into surgery or into a certain decision, which I appreciated. Check-in and wait time was also great. I would definitely recommend Dr. Carlson!
Definitely would recommend.
When no other doctors believed me and MRIs said there was nothing wrong dr Carlson got me into surgery and sure enough found a torn meniscus. I am so grateful for him and how he believed me. Definitely would recommend.
I can highly recommend him after being a patient.
Dr. Carlson did a great job with my shoulder surgery. He explained the options, was very conservative in his approach, was minimally-invasive, and the surgery was successful. He is a skilled doctor. I did my research to find a great doctor and surgeon and I can highly recommend him after being a patient.
