Dr Carson was amazing, I’m sad he doesn’t see patients anymore

I’ve seen Dr carson for 11 years. When i started, he was the most caring and kind doctor i had ever met. His office was so prompt and on top of things. In the last 3 years, things have started to slip. Maybe because it’s gotten so big? I haven’t been able to see dr carson in over a year, just his pa. Even though my disease process has been getting worse, and I’ve asked. At this point, I’m not comfortable with a pa handeling my care. I need a doctor. I’m sad to move on, because i truly believe he’s one in a million. His new pain managment comsult is awful. I have never even met that doctor and she took me off a pain medication while my pain was higher than it had been in years. I understand doctors are under a lot of pressure with the ‘opioid crisis’ but a patient you’ve had for over 10 years, with no evidence of abuse or drug seeking behavior??? At what cost are you doing this? It’s honestly cruel and sad. I hope dr carson can retire in peace. It seems like with the pa’s running the show, it’s going downhill fast.

Disappointed

I only saw Dr Carson once in 4 years, my first appointment. After that, I only saw his PA. On my last visit the PA recommended that I have my Plaquenil Eye Test done there rather than my Ophthalmologist. (they had much better testing, she said) I did, and their results found problems and signs of macular degeneration. They referred me to Dean McGee Eye Institute for further tests and sent their results to them. In a panic, I went for what I was told would be further testing. They performed the "exact same tests" and said they had no idea how OK Arthritis Clinic come to their diagnosis and further testing wasn't needed. They sent me a large bill and I called because insurance always pays covers that testing. She told they would check to make sure it was coded correctly and call me back. I didn't hear back & assumed it was paid by insurance. A year later they sent me a letter demanding payment and stating they have attempted numerous times to contact me with no response. I called & was told they sent me a bill a year ago! (the one I called about) No contact from them for a year... is NOT numerous attempts with no response! Why do they do Plaquenil Eye Testing if they are going to refer you when they find something? Insurance only covers 1 test per year! I thought I was going for "further testing" not the exact same testing. Insurance only pays for the same test once per year, not twice in 3 weeks! FYI: Don't have Plaquenil Eye Tests there! Don't expect them to follow up or make any attempts to contact you before waiting a year to send a nasty letter giving 10 days to pay it or they will send you to collections & drop you as a patient. I don't want to go back!!

Dr. Carson is the most compassionate physician I've ever had!

I've seen many physicians in my life, but I've never had one like Dr. Carson. I never feel rushed, or hurried. He listens to what I have to say and then takes each thing and comments. I never feel like anything I have to say is too small. I truly feel cared for!

Four Stars

Dr. Carson is a life saver. I had been to numerous doctors and could not get a diagnosis. Dr. Carson figured out my symptoms in my first visit. I can't tell you how much he has helped me. I have peace of mind again.

Gave me back a quality of life.

I've been seeing Dr. Carson for over 15 years. He was the first doctor who sat down and listened to me. I have Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibro. Those are very difficult diseases to diagnose but also treat. It is often a very delicate balancing act. His office staff and nurse staff are always professional and kind.

A very caring Doctor

If you are a patient needing a rheumatologist I could reccomend no better doctor than Dr. Carson. He has years of experience and is very kind and caring to all of his patients.

Finally found out what was wrong with me.

I have had some strange illnesses and symptoms for more than 25 years. Went to many many doctors, finally was referred to Dr. Carson. His tests were very through and he finally gave a diagnosis after many years of suffering and started treatment. I would be an invalid today if not for Dr Carson's help. He is very caring and listens to me, does not try to hurry me out like so many Doctors do. On a scale of 1-10 he is an 11!!!!!
