Dr Carlsson is very thorough with her examinations. She takes the extra time to listen to you and answer any questions. I was recently diagnosed with Uterine cancer and still pretty upset and emotional at times trying to cope with everything. She took the extra time to listen to what has transpired over the past 6 weeks with me and answered some of my many questions about what to expect with my pending radiation treatments.

Today I had a cosmetic procedure. It involved me applying a topical anesthetic prior to the appointment and then the procedure involved some burning of the skin. I may not have applied enough of the anesthetic everywhere. She took her time and always was checking in with me on my pain tolerance. It was almost as if she had the same compassion as my mom, but with the medical training. I’m so grateful for Dr. Carlson-Thorn.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care.
