How likely are you to recommend Dr. Carlson?

(Select your rating)
I was hospitalized with an collapsed lung. After a botched effort to insert a chest tube by emergency doctor and a successful 2ed attempt Dr Carlson was called in to collaborate. He took over my care and healing. Upon examining the tube insertion he immediately striped all the excess tape and gauze while shaking his head. When he finally getting to the tube he repositioned it much to my relief. The outcome was what he explained it would be. With out him I'm not sure I would have recovered.
