My appt was originally scheduled for next week. When the nurse found openings in the Dr's schedule and saw that I was experiencing pain she called to see if I could come earlier. That was above and beyond caring!

Sometimes, it seems like the doctor I see doesn't remember me or my health at all, even though I've been going to him for over 5 years.

Appt times need to add an additional 3 to 5 minutes. While they provide great care they are asked to see a lot of patients. Time is important to the Dr's and patients.

The wait time between when the nurse was done and when the doctor came in was long. With reimbursement from the insurance companies being what they are, doctors are on a time schedule and they hurry in and hurry out. Yes, I have a lot going on since it has been awhile since I seen a doctor. I finally asked if he was ordering labs to be drawn since I had fasted for 12 hours. I worked in the medical field doing medical billing for 45 years so I have been around this environment. These young doctors need to listen to everything their patient is telling them.

The Dr and nurse I saw were great! The front desk staff I dealt with were not as helpful as I felt they should be.

I feel like that there's never enough time to talk to my doctor because he's always in a hurry. And he tries to squeeze me always. So its, never listens to what I have to say.

It was quick and efficient as a well check should be, especially when this isn't your first rodeo with this age.

I was very pleased with Dr. Carlstone and wull have him as primary care doctor in the future.

I was greeted very well off the elevator, the nurse was new, but asked questions to get to know me, and then Dr. Carlstone had clearly prepared for my visit, and was quickly able to compare answers from last year and this year. I felt very cared for.

Hi, yes. We had a wonderful first visit with Dr. Carlstone, and he treated us very nicely, and we will be happy to go back. Thank you.

Dr. Carlstone treats us so well all the time. He cares for his patience like they are family. He explains things so we are able to understand as well as our child to understand.
