I enjoy working with Dr. Carlstone as a family physician. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and is extremely knowledgeable. However, Pella Medical Clinic overbooks patients and we have difficulty getting even regular checkups scheduled in a timely way because of this. This has been frustrating for sports physicals, and for inconvenient appointment times, that result in me having to take off more time from work than should be necessary. Again, not the doctor's fault on that note.

Carlstone is a great guy and knows his stuff with medicine. I like that he doesn't just give you medicine just because. I think we are quick to want medicine for everything. He's an intelligent man!

He listens to any concerns we may have & helps us the best way he can! Dr. Carlstone is incredible doctor! I highly recommend him! Thank you Dr. Carlstone!

That it took forever for the lab to come draw blood. I am a very hard stick so I would not mention anything about the two sticks.
