Excellent care

The first time I went to the office, I was in chronic pain due to sciatica. Dr. Carls gave me a thorough exam, sent me to the X-ray room and met me right outside the X-ray room to review the X-rays with me. He took very good care of me and I decided then and there that he would be my primary doctor. He has a sense of humor, takes his time to listen to me and makes me very comfortable. If you are in need of a doctor, I highly recommend him.

One Star

I was late for 2 of my pro-time tests which I should get every month...the first was equally the DR.'s fault...the second time was my fault and I take responsibility ,,,but his nurse and then him literally attack me in the most unprofessional way . with the snarkiest display of disrespect. I had already decided to change DR's he was just odd...but his display of temper tantrum was way out there.

One problem a visit. Any more than one can be handled the next time and the next and the next. Very much a hands on the door knob type and his nursing staff is very rude and uncaring.

Scam Artist Office

The office staff forces you to make unnecessary or duplicate visits. They refused me care when I questioned this. These people are awful.

Great Doctor

He actually took the time that was needed to correctly diagnose me. He did not just hand out antibiotics, but did an actual blood test to make sure I needed them. His staff was friendly and helpful.
