Dr. Tim P. Carlson's Ratings
Sorry but this office has changed a lot in the past 10 years and it has NOT IMPROVED. The office has become a factory to make as much $ as possible. You are held hostage to get your prescriptions renewed and referral requests are hard to get...Dr. Carlson doesn't have the time for you or doesn't let you speak during the visit. If by chance you can put two words edgewise, he feels like he's being attacked and pounces back like a madman and he's a real bully. I quit, I'll go see someone that cares!!!
Myself and a family member decided to find a new doctor. My new doctor requested records, but the phone is always busy and nobody at the office returns calls. The "diagnosis" he makes up for patients are not true and primarily are just for getting paid. Hope things change for this office.
I went to this doctor because of the comments from others. I have had trouble getting through since I started in February. The phone is ALWAYS busy. They must take the phone off the hook. I am not exaggerating. They also close for lunch for 2 hours. Day of appt. recording said we are closed, then busy. Today had appt for specialist, Dr Tim never sent referral as requested last Wed. by specialist staff. Had to cancel appt because I can't get through to Dr Tim! This is unacceptable. Getting referral to specialist not my job! This is the normal, not the exception. He has a special number for "new"patients outside service, they couldn't get through either. If his staff doesn't have to do "new" patient issues, why can't they answer the phone at all. When I was at my appt with Dr Tim, I explained swelling in feet especially left one, he never even LOOKED at or addressed it. Had to address over phone 3 issues he never answered during visit. After much frustration, I'll find another doctor.
He has a wonderful bedside manner, really cares, very knowledgeable about alternatives. He takes time to listen and explain. Dr. Carlson takes very good care of me. I would never consider any other doctor. His staff and associates are tops too.
The Best Doc in Town. Dianose RIGHT the first time and saved me from ending up in Emergency surgery and even possible life threatening situation. The VERY best and is caring wonderful Doctor and Person. HIGHLY Recommend HIM.
Amazing Doctor. Listens and takes time. He does not get you in and get you out. If you are looking for bedside manner Dr. Carlson is it. Wish all Doctors were like him. He sits down in the room with you and does not hover over you like you are a number. Very compassionate. GREAT DOC!!!
Always caring, professional, while very human, for staff and the physician is THE BEST; definitely NOT a machine, but personable, sincere human being who takes time to let the patient know what he is thinking and what he expects. He diagnosed correctly the FIRST visit.
