"I experienced basically the same responses as several others. The doctor was dismissive, prone to obfuscation, and shifty eyed! She wouldn't make eye contact! There was no care, concern, or feeling. She was curt, borderline rude, and seemed to be a depressive. I'm not sure why such an academically accomplished physician would allow herself to flunk the all important, bedside manner! If you don't have that? It's like the tin man! She needs a heart! I was so put off, I decided to forego a much needed couple of procedures for diagnostic information for a potentially serious situation. If it didn't fit her narrative, it wasn't accurate. If you need anything other than basic care, go somewhere else!"

"I'm surprised by the negative reviews of Dr. Carson. I've met with her 3x and each time she's been personable, patient, and thorough with both her evaluations and her explanations. I really like her and trust her. I'll see her again the next time I have any gastro issues."

"Very rude at consultation, did not listen, was defensive and dismissive. After her behavior fiasco, I said I did not want her to do my procedure. She told me to get my copay back and walked out of the room. Shocking behavior from a physician; I was referred to her by my gynecologist but will definitely be letting her know that was a HUGE mistake. "

"She worked well with what she believes in such as colitis but when it came to IBD/IBS she said I was depressed. I would question that diagnosis since she based that on looking at my eyes. I had on a mask and that is all she could see. I particularly asked when I made the appointment that morning if she treated IBD/IBS and I was told she did. Big disappointment on that issue. "

"She is the best of the best in her chosen field. I am older and have had many colonoscopies. Some have been uncomfortable during the exam. Her exam was entirely painless. She discovered a very small polyp that could have easily been missed by a hurried practitioner who was not paying close attention. She also performed another procedure where she was thorough and took the time to both put me at ease and also explained everything she was doing and why, plus steps I needed to follow to keep my condition under control. I am forever greatly appreciative of her excellent care."

"Dr. Carson is exemplary. I went through two other Gastroenterology doctors in the Atlanta area who were just okay and following a recommendation from my primary care physician, another super star, I went with Dr. Carson and it was the best move for my gastro health I could have made. When I go to a doctor, I expect, no DEMAND time and attention to respond to my issues and questions. And I typically ask a lot of questions. I am a CDC alumnae and make it my business to familiarize myself with the current literature available to me and Dr. Carson is always spot on with what I need to know, often even before I pose the questions. Also, she has conducted colonoscopies and endoscopies and provided me with minute details about these procedures. AND she got me through an attack of diverticulitis with speedy diagnostics and therapeutics and followed up with me until I was recovered. You cant ask for better. What I want from a health provider: high degree competence; full attention; answers ...
to my questions; AND answers/information that I need to have that she initiates. Dr. Carson is FIVE STARS in all my key requirements. "

"Awful!!!! Not interested in the person only the disease and her opinion. Saw her for over 10 years. All I got were tests and no helpful advice or medicine. I have IBD."

"She is a straight shooter and answered all my questions. She was thorough and explained everything well"

Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.
