I just wish I didn't have to wait so long to get another CAT SCAN or MRI. All this waiting is unnerving. I am unhappy about how long this process is taking as I have bad stomach pain.

Dr. Carlson is the best gastroenterologist I've had. He always listens, works with my concerns and takes his time. It's nice that he's never rushed. A true knowledgeable caring professional!

Dr. Carlson is an exceptional professional and person. I am pretty high maintenance in that I don't often go to doctors and want to understand everything. My healing experiences with him have changed my view of the value of western medicine, as he is broadly knowledgeable, infinitely curious, and an holistic thinker. Also, I am now much healthier.
