She is apparently "too good" to get in

I tried for over two months to make an appointment for my daughter whom was referred by another doctor. It first took them a month to receive the referrals I had to keep calling them about it ,then they needed all her tests which I had to fax. finally, after all those weeks, she said that doctor won't see her because we need more testing done. I don't understand when one doctor determined that she has to be seen, why are they not willing to take a look at her? I was so disappointed with their service and unprofessionalism.

Best Endo in 20+ years of living with T1D

I have been seeing Dr. Carlson for more than 7 years and the only other endocrinologist I've seen that comes close to Molly in displaying compassion and empathy for the challenges of living with T1D, balanced with firmness to "get or stay on track" was an Endo who was living with T1D. I have found her to be open, responsive (both during appointments and outside of visits via email/phone) and encouraging. When our insurance changed a few years back, before we knew if Molly was a PP, my husband and I agreed that continuing to be in her care was a priority, one we would pay out of pocket or fly (if she ever leaves the area) to ensure continuity. Luckily we don't have to. In the time I have been seeing her I have gotten my A1c's back in range, navigated the waters of training for my first half marathon and begun the discussions/planning for care that is necessary to start our family. I highly recommend Molly to any T1D new or otherwise, who are looking for a partner in their care.

Apparently she is God and too good to see you

I was referred by 5 different doctors - all specialists - to Dr. Carlson. All of them agreed my problems are endocrine related, and that she would be the best person to help me. I have been suffering for a year, have NO quality of life, unable to perform my job to my satisfaction, and MISERABLE. EVERY medical record, chart for the last 3 years, lab test was sent to her in addition to the 5 referrals. SHe will NOT see me. Apparently, she won't diagnose people - doesn't want to get bothered with the tough cases that aren't easy to determine in absence of positive bloodwork. I am so disappointed, and have considered hiring an attorney now for her refusal of medical care. Apparently, my 2 top insurance plans are not good enough for them? I'm one of the rare ones that has the best insurance in the world, and even they say i should see her and will pay for it. I do NOt recommend dealing with this office and am disappointed by her patient reviews.

Terrible doctor

This doctor is incredibly rude. She is more interested in numbers than actually listening to what I had to say. I did not feel any compassion during my visit from her. Her goal was to get me out of their faster than it took me to get this appt (which was weeks). And Her staff was more concerned about their schedule than patients. I would not recommend her.
