My wife was having horrible back pain. Our local doctor did one surgery and kept sending her back to PT. Dr. Carlson took the time to find out what was the cause of the problem. After a back fusion and another surgery to fix the first doctors mess up she is much better now. Thanks Dr. Carlson! With out you she would not be walking today.

He came in, said there's nothing on the x-ray, prescribed a drug and blood work and left. He did not look at me. Everything went through his nurse. He hinted around that he did not believe me when I said I was in pain. I had an MRI, he did not mention it. I felt worse when I left then when I got there.
