I found Dr. Jeffrey Carlson through a referral from a family member. I knew I needed back surgery but I wasn’t happy with my current doctor.
With my MRI in hand, I met Dr. Carlson in March of 2020. I was impressed with his thorough explanation of what was happening in my lower back, he showed me on the MRI that I had 3 discs gone and one on the way.
He scheduled me for a four-level fusion procedure, then four days before my surgery, the hospital canceled all elective surgery due to the COVID-19 PPE shortage. Dr. Carlson tried to push the surgery through since I was in a lot of pain, but we had no choice but to wait. The wait was almost 6 weeks, Dr Carlson’s staff did all they could to keep me as comfortable as possible during the wait.
Finally, my surgery date was rescheduled and all went well. In a matter of weeks, most of the pain was gone. Now after 4 months, I am pain free and enjoying retirement! Thank you, Dr. Carlson and staff!
