About Dr. Carlson

Philosophy of care

To me, medicine is combining faith and evidence-based knowledge to prevent and treat illness, while encouraging an atmosphere of shared clinical decision-making. Involving you in your care allows you to engage and play an active role in your health.

Why I entered medicine

I grew up watching my dad, a physician, make such a difference in each of his patient's lives. Since I was a child, I knew how fulfilling and exciting a job in medicine can be. Every day I get to wake up, meet new people, and help each patient be the best and healthiest version of themselves.

Community involvement

My husband and I started a non-profit organization called "Mission on Fire," which focuses on the core tenets of medicine, mission work and marriage. We hope to use our faith and skills in medicine to bring hope and healing all around the world though mission work.

Personal interests

I love cooking, playing tennis, traveling and spending time with my husband and family.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
