Dr. Carlson answered all our questions and also gave us great suggestions to support our son's health. We felt heard and supported, and as brand new parents, we appreciated that a lot.

Both Dr Carlson and the student working with him have always been amazing. They're attentive and listen. They answer all my questions and make sure that I'm understanding what they answerI feel that they respect myself and my daughter. I was hesitant at first to see a Dr that had students but the students are just as informative and knowledgeable. And we love Dr Carlson. We've never had a better doctor!!

Dr Carlson is very thorough and counsels a lot! There is so much good information, I wish it could be written down or he had handouts. Or even a verbal summary
