  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Two Stars

Dr. Carlson is not the best choice for a young adult. She is judgmental and makes you feel like you are lying to her when you provide truly honest answers. If you are seeking a warm, open experience, she is not the doc for you. Her medical assistant is extremely nice and helpful.

very rude doctor

This M D needs to retire since she obviously does not enjoy taking care of anyone. Very rude and sarcastic when I asked questions. She acted as though I was bothering her. If you have a choice, do not choose her.
