I know that doctor's can run behind schedule, especially if they spend the necessary time with each patient. I was very satisfied with our office visit and my daughter's new doctor, even if we had to wait a bit.

Dr Carson and his team were wonderful! We recently moved to this area and had tried a different doctor in another town. We were not pleased with this first doctor at all. We picked Dr Carson online because reviews stated that he was positive, involved his patients in their care, and was obviously well educated about recent therapies. Dr Carson lived up to all of these reviews. I could not be more pleased!
