"Since Dr. Mark Carlson became my Doctor (as I like to say My Personal Physician), I have become very convinced that concierge medicine is best for me. I do have more medical problems than the average bear, but seem to be healthier than I was. Dr. Carlson hears everything and basically forgets next to nothing. I find the relationship and the care to be worth every penny..."
Concierge Medicine Philosophy & Approach
We believe that medicine today should focus on prevention, early detection, wellness, direct patient care and spending dedicated time with patients. These are the tenets of concierge medicine. After years of private practice, physicians who transition to concierge medicine get to return to giving patients the type of care they envisioned when entering medical school. Learn More
