Patient Reviews

We have been with Dr. Nancy for over 18 years. She has been an amazing pediatrician for all three of our children, one of whom has special needs. She takes her time, listens, and always provides great advice and support. Don't know what we'd do without her!

Dr. Carlson has been the primary pediatrician for all 4 of our kids since our first child was born 20 years ago. She has done dozens of well child visits, and advised us during many challenges along the way. She is a great sounding board for my concerns. I always recommend Dr. Carlson to all my friends looking for a pediatrician. She's the best!

Dr. Carlson tells it like it is and is very honest with you. As first time parents, we really valued that. We appreciate her directness and sense of humor. She not only treats our daughter, the patient, but also the whole family. Stressing the importance of the whole family's health and well being. We love her and are so lucky to have her as our pediatrician.

Dr. Carlson is a gem. Since my pregnancy, she has had dozens of helpful suggestions that always resonate with me. Dr. Carlson has many years of experience under her belt and her positive, stress-free, "you-can-do-it" attitude is a balm for new parents. She is relaxed, easy to talk to, and never intrusive. We're thrilled with her care of our daughter - and of us!
