Dr. Carlson is the worst doctor.I had the chance to see him once during the 2 years I have been in the office,he put me on to his nurse Bettina,she is stupid and does not know anything.His nurse Gina is mean and disrespectful to patients,she is rude over the phone.No one in this office knows about the Code of Conduct.

Do not recommend this office to anyone.

Dr.Carlson is the worst doctor I have ever seen.I saw once him as a cancer patient and I have been going to the office for about 2 years,he put me on to his nurse Bettina.I think she is very stupid and does not know anything, she is ugly with no real education. The nurse Gina is a real mean person when I call for a refill, she is very fat and,should not be working in a doctors office.She should be working in a mental hospital.She has no respect for patients,where did she go to school.Dr Carlson you should ask her if she know anything about the Code of Conduct or do you know what it is yourself maybe you can teach her ,because she very rude and disrespectful to patients over the phone.1

Excellent Diabetes Doctor

I have been going to Dr. Carlson for many years for my type 1 diabetes. He has helped my keep my A1C in the range it should be. He listens to me at the appointments and takes his time with me. My wife developed type 2 diabetes a few years ago and she now sees Dr. Carlson too.
