Love Dr Carlson. She makes an uncomfortable type of examination very comfortable by putting you at ease. She is very down to earth and easy to talk to. Have been a patient for years and it will remain that way!
Dr.Melissa Carlson is wonderful. Authentic and genuinely cares and spends time without making me feel that she is one foot out the door on to the next patient. If I want to discuss anything about my health or concerns, she would take however long needed to make feel comfortable with all.
I have been to her twice and I can say she is so kind. I feel comfortable moving forward and having her be my doctor.
Dr Carlson always makes an uncomfortable visit much easier!!!
Great doctor. Easy to talk to. Very nice staff.
I have been going to Dr Carlson for several years. She is the best. She takes the time needed to address any questions or concerns.
I've been a patient for almost 14 years. Dr. Carlson is the best. Very patient, seems like she knows just by looking at you once you come there being pregnant. She is awesome and I've never experienced a doctor like her.
I have been a patient of Dr. Carlson's for over 10 years now and have to say that she is the Best Doctor I have ever had. She is warm, comforting and makes you feel so relaxed. I would, and have recommend her to anyone who is looking for an OBGYN!
The entire office staff is very courteous and helpful. Dr. Carlson is friendly, knowledgeable, professional and concerned.
Dr Carlson is a wonderful doctor and I highly recommend her to any woman out there. She truly cares for her patients and she takes her time to explain things to you. I had a few problems with my 4th pregnancy, but Dr Carlson went over everything I was going to experience, good and bad. She really does have a lot of compassion for all of her patients. I have been going to her for 14 years.
Office staff professional and efficient so first exposure very positive. Dr. Carlson had read my chart info before walking into the examining room so she was familiar with my medical history. She was welcoming and a good listener and responded to all my many questions. I never felt rushed.
When you are pregnant it is imperative that you have the best doctor who can answer all your questions, who is friendly, realiable and able to assist you with what you need, The last thing you need is to be stressed out with the doctor who will be responsbile for delivering your baby. After all, this is a big moment in one's life. Yesterday, was my first vist with Dr. Carlson and my husband and I both agreed that she is great, funny and to the point. We are looking forward to the visits with her along our pregnancy.
It may be difficult having to wait a month or more for your annual exam but it's well worth it. I drive 45 min one way just to see Dr. Carlson. She has the best bedside manner, is very attentive, and the staff is super. I would highly recommend her and her office. Thanks Dr. Carlson for making me feel special.
Dr. Carlson is a top notch physician with the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever met. Her personality and positive energy put you at ease the moment she walks in the door. She spends ample time with patients listening carefully and providing important feedback to any questions/concerns. Once you meet her you will always feel welcome like you are a part of her family. There are very few doctors around today that have the gift of healing and caring. I am thankful to have Dr.Carlson as my physician. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a truly talented physician.
I LOVE HER! She's friendly. Makes you feel comfortable. No complaints.
She has the best personality of the whole office. Always spunky and has a great attitude. Absolutely love her!
New to florida I chose this doctor based on great reviews I saw on line. I was so disappointed. I was a new patient coming for an annual exam. She spent five minutes for the entire visit. She answered my few questions very briefly and her comment "nice to meet you" was said as the door was mostly closed behind her. She told me that the pap result should come within 10 days and if all normal to expect a letter. Three weeks passed by with no results. After calling and leaving a message I received a call back. 4 months later I got a generic note stating my pap result was normal. It was very frustrating trying to schedule an appt and took several phone calls to do so. I was not impressed with the medical questionere. As a nurse myself who worked in OB/Gyn offices I have seen more thorough forms. I understand that the days of cloth gowns and sheets are way behind us but at least a paper gown should be considered. I was given a paper shirt and a paper sheet. The only positive feedback I can give is that this doctor was gentle with her exam. I will not return to this doctor.
Dr. Carlson took care of me during my pregnancy and I also got an IUD inserted soon after I gave birth. Her knowledge, compassion, and bedside manners are one of the best I have seen in any doctor. She is truly a gifted doctor. I never feel anything when she does examinations. She listens to you and respects your decisions. There's a wait to see her which is totally understandable because people know she is truly one of the best.
Amazing doctor. She has performed a very difficult surgery on me where I should have lost my uterus, but she managed to save it. And now I'm back to normal thanks to her. The wait to see her might be long, but well worth it.
She's very down to earth, smart, and understanding. She's great at calming you down when you receive the bad news.
I have been using Dr.Carlson for 7 years now. I started using her for regular GYN visits and now using her for my pregnancy she is the BEST, my husband and I both love her very much. She always has time to answer questions and sometimes to just listen. I don't know what I would do with out her I love her as a Doctor and just as a person she is great!!
I left a comment earlier but have a follow-up. I spoke with Dr. Carlson's business manager about not getting reimbursed after I paid up front and they received payment from my insurance. The office manager said," Our policy is to try to reimburse our patients ONE YEAR after we have received payment from the insurance, although we could take as long as SEVEN YEARS. She also indicated that although patients have to pay up front, their office keeps the interest that the insurance company pays them for taking a long time to pay. She didn't care that I was the one waiting. When you go to this practice, it's like having no insurance. And they are supposedly a PREFERRED PROVIDER!
I have been using Dr. Carlson for years. She listens, cares, as well as takes time every single time you walk in the door to make sure you get every question answered. Whether you are child bearing age or like me beyond those years, she gets it. And knows how to make things right. Not like others who rush you in and out. She truely cares about her patients and their needs. Appointments are out a bit, but that is only because all of her patients love her and are willing to wait. For urgent care, you are right in there. The staff is wonderful, responsive and has returned every single call. I dont know what I would do if it wasnt for Dr. Carlson. She is the best of the best!
No one answers a phone at this practice.Nurse does not relay messages to doctor.Nurse is dismissive.No one returns calls.No one responds to faxes.Makes you pay up front and then getting reimbursed after insurance pays is like pulling teeth.Practice only interested in efficiency in making appointments and getting paid: NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR HEALTH CONCERNS.No doctor is worth this level of bad office practice.
I have been with Dr. Carlson since I became pregant a year ago and I have to say she is a wonderful, down to earth person. She listens to you, answers any questions you have and just is a all around good doctor to have. She is also very smart doctor and takes well care of your. I highly recommend her, but she is also very busy and in demand by everyone because she is a wonderful doctor.
