Ratings for Dr. Donald G. Carson
Dr. Carson is a smarty pants. It's just who he is. You have to take it with a grain of salt. He knows exactly what he's doing and he tells the truth. When I was pregnant he was concerned that I was having some issues, he put me in his car and drove me to the hospital to have a more extensive sonogram done. He didn't want to waste any time. Sometimes I want to punch him in his mouth but I wouldn't trade him for anything.
I left the appointment crying... I feel terrible. My PCP suggested I visit my OB/GYN and rule out anything. I took the Health Survey and he actually said "With all the stuff you circled, you should be on your deathbed!" I circled all the symptoms I have! He was rude and condescending. I took a copy of my blood work because my PCP told me to have another set of eyes review it and Dr. Carson actually said "These numbers don't mean anything to me. I don't need them. PCPs just like to run all this blood work, not sure why!" He All he said when I left is "See you next year and I hope you feel better." I felt like he didn't believe my symptoms and that I was just wasting his time!
I just have to say, despite his bad bedside manner, when push comes to shove this is the doctor you want if you end up having to have an emercency c-section. An excellent surgeon. And when it comes down to it, that's what counts. When I went for follow-up I expected him to be the jerk that I hear he is, but nope, he was not. I guess I got him on a good day! But even the nurse said to me that I was in good hands with him when it came to the surgery. So keep that in mind if you get him at the hospital during delivery. A nice doctor doesn't always make a good surgeon..and vice versa ;)
