Five Stars

I dislocated my knee cap and tore my meniscus. I was originally treated by three different MJH doctors and it never was right. The last doctor referred me to Health South where I was then referred to Dr. Carson and I'm so glad they did. Dr. Carson was extremely professional and knowledgeable when I saw him. He recommended going back in to make the necessary repairs to my knee and Ivan say finally after three surgeries my knee felt great. I always recommend Dr. Carson to anyone that I know that is in need of an orthopedic surgeon and will continue to do so. Now I think I have torn my rotator cuff and Dr. Carson is going to be the first and only doctor I will see.

Med Student

Very good doctor. I was seen by Dr. Yang, his resident. Both of them were wonderful. Performed the needed tests on my knee, read my MRI quickly and I was scheduled for surgery within 2 weeks.

broken ankle patient

Three years later, my ankle is in great shape. My physical therapists were very impressed with the range of movement I was able to achieve after a complicated injury. Dr. Carson explained everything to me and I now have only a scar to show for my injury. He isn't Mr. Rogers, but he was certainly never rude and he did everything that needed to be done. I honestly don't understand the complaints about rudeness and arrogance, I thought he was polite and very easy to talk to.

Terrible communicator

This doctor is not a good communicator. He is rude and his exams are a joke. He does not tell you things, and you have to read your medical reports to know what your diagnosis is and what treatment he is recommending. His main nurse is rude, too. Dont trust your future with this group.

One Star

Dr. Carson was rude and very disrespectful. I really wanted to continue being his patient but felt like a I was an interruption in his day. Because of his rude behavior and nasty attitude I wouldn't recommend him

Worst experience ever with a doctor

Not only was this doctor over an hour late, he didn't even apologize or explain. He obviously had no idea who I was or why I was there even though the referring physician sent over all my records/x-rays/MRIs. He was rude and dismissive and his cursory 2 minute exam was a joke. Much to his arrogant surprise, I "walked out on him" after his bad attitude and condescending remarks finally brought me to tears.

Certified Nursing Assisstant

My experience with Dr. Carson and his team was wonderful. The staff treats you like family. I felt so at ease with being Dr. carsons patient. He always greets you with a smile.....His explanation of my problem was told to me so that I could understand exactly what he was talking about. he is very thorough. Thank you Dr.Carson for fixing my shoulder. I feel so much better now and I owe it all to you and your team.....
