Ratings for Dr. Craig Carson
I have been a patient of Dr Carson for 7+ years. He is in my opinion one of the best Dr's in town. He takes his time, asks the right questions and is not quick to hand out prescriptions. He is exceptional in an emergency and truly cares for his patients. My boys have had a few non traditional issues and he has been nothing short of amazing in helping me understand and get the appropriate specialist/referrals.
Dr. Carson literally saved my life when he was on duty in the emergency room in Georgetown hospital. He may have a few flaws but when push comes to shove he is a no nonsense doctor that tells you how it is and is there when it counts. His staff is excellent fun loving and very personable. Sometimes they may miss a few things but don't we all. My overall experience has never been unpleasant or rude. If you need a doctor that doesn't fool around and can save your life then Carson is the guy.
Used to think Carson was competent but now you don't get to see him without going through the nurse practitioner. Maybe if you are sick you see him but if you are a repeat client due to chronic illness you spend more time with the nurse than Carson. He spends about 3 minutes reviewing information then just signs the Rx's and you are dismissed until next time. I think I will start looking for a Dr who wants to spend time with his patients
Dr. Carson is amazing especially with kids. I have never waited more than 10 minutes to see him. I am always able to get an appointment with him or one of the other doctors in his practice the same day I call. He has always exceeded my expectations as a family doctor and in the ER. Nurses and admin support always have high praise for him which I feel speaks volumes.
May be a good doctor, but am looking for a new doctor due his support staff. Staff is poor, making promises that they do not keep. Ist appointment with him was changed when he went on vacation, and nobody called me to rebook. Took time off work, only to find my appointment was cancelled. Had to rebook, taking even more time off work. 3rd,(and last) time staff promised to call and let me know if he could squeeze me in. Never called back. Could have gone to a walk in clinic instead.
