Horrible pain after surgery
Posted on March 28th, 2017
I was referred to Dr. Carlson via another doctor at OI. It felt like he was in a hurry and needed to get me out as fast as possible. Had an MRI done and found a herniated disk. He told me about the results in less than a minute and scheduled me for a epidural injection that didn't work. Then he pushed to have surgery done asap after the injection didn't work. Had the surgery and ended up with a 4 inch scar. Now over a year later I have chronic pain to the point I cannot work or do the necessary things in every day life. I was told that I have an excessive amount of scar tissue build up from a surgery that was supposed to be minimal invasive. The staff was amazing and extremely polite.

Dr. Carlson was very nice and a very skilled surgeon. His staff was very efficient and well trained. I would recommend him to everyone!

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.
