First doctor we ever met that knows our son's syndrome, Dup15q. Dr Carson was so very helpful in answering our questions!

Dr. Carson is such an amazing doctor. He take the time to listen and address any concerns we had. It says a lot about a doctor when you have fun at your visit.

Dr. Carson truly seems to care for his patients. He also listens well to me (the parent). This is very encouraging that he realized I spend much more time with my daughter and see symptoms on a daily basis. He also is great about explaining things and offering options.
