I too went to Dr. Carlson after reading Suzanne Somers book about hormone replacement. (I might add that I will no longer respect anything she says)

I spent over $6,000 with this doctor.
I had insurance, but he wouldn't accept it.
That's fine for office visits, but I never understood why he wouldn't write prescriptions out so I could at least use my insurance for that part of the treatment. Later, after reading through the lawsuits brought against him for selling illegal steroids and his affiliation with Signature Pharmacy, I see that he was all about $$$!

I can't even put into words how this Doctor used and abused me! I saw him in Best Buy one day, I don't think he saw me. My whole body started to shake. I felt like a person who was raped and seen their assailant out and about, enjoying their life. I thought I would pass out, my husband had to take me to sit down.

I would have a VERY long post here to write down all of this doctor's evils. I would strongly advise anyone considering this doctor to find someone else.
Dr. Carlson does NOT care about you, he just wants your $$$

The staff here will seem friendly at first, but don't cross them or complain. Then, you will see the true colors come out. One staff member was fired.(she didn't agree with their motives) I bumped into her at a store. She told me all about the staff and doctor and that my treatment wasn't right. Nothing I didn't know already, but it felt good to have someone finally admit it.

I am now facing a side effects stemming from the HGH injections he had me taking. I have growths on my vocal chords, a common side affect from HGH.

At 44 years old, I am dealing with insurance companies not wanting to give me a policy because of all my pre-existing issues and prescription history.

The worst thing I ever did was believe a doctor simply because they are a doctor! Do yourself a favor and read and research on your own. Don't just listen to a doctor and don't just take what they prescribe you. I wish I could turn the clock back and do this myself, but that's not possible.

I can only warn people now to stay away from Dr. Robert Carlson. If you have extra money you want to throw away, then this is your guy.

Don't take any of your loved ones to him either.
I took my daughter to him as well. She was only 20 years old, but having problems stemming from PCOS. Dr. Carlson put her on thyroid medicine and we sent her back to college. She called me with chest pains and heart palpitations. I told her to stop taking all meds and took her to our regular family doctor. I showed him her blood work. He said she was one point away from what the "normal" range was for thyroid. He said she had no problem with her thyroid and the medicine Dr. Carlson put her on, was giving her the heart palpitations because she didn't need it. I guess he just needed a little more at that Signature Pharmacy profit money.

All I can say is that judgement day comes for all and he will have to answer for his greedy ways.

As far as Sarasota goes, I've been to Dr. Daniel Watts, Dr. Vincent Stenger, and Dr. Carol Roberts. All in desperation to replace hormones that were taken from a needless hysterectomy. They all want to put you on lots of injections and prescriptions, most not covered by insurance. They will all make it sound like you will have drastic down fall if you don't follow their orders and scare you into trying to afford the meds. After many months and lots of out of pocket money lost, I never felt better. None of these treatments made me feel better. Again, if I could turn the clock back, I wouldn't have let them remove my ovaries. You just can't replace your hormones like the natural ovaries did.

Unless you have cancer, don't let them take your ovaries!
This is the only reason I posted on this website.
If only one person reads this and avoids what happened to me, then it will have been worth it to have posted here.

ALBANY, NY Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares announced today that ROBERT CARLSON, 50, of Sarasota, FL, pled guilty to (1) Count of Insurance Fraud in the 4th Degree, a Class E Felony, before the Honorable Daniel Lamont. CARLSON faces 5 years of probation and will forfeit $300,000.

On or about November 21, 2006, at 11 Corporate Woods Blvd., Albany, CARLSON did knowingly provide false information in the form of a bogus prescription which was then used to claim reimbursement from Blue Cross/Blue Shield for a prescription.

Another doctor that made a conscious choice to part ways with their oath has pled guilty today. This is another very significant plea that provides a ninth witness who will cooperate fully in the cases against both Signature Pharmacy and Palm Beach Rejuvenation, commented DA Soares.

Financial Crimes Bureau Chief Christopher Baynes handled the prosecution of this case.

Dr. Carlson Okay

AUTHOR: Jeff - (U.S.A.)

Dr. Carlson is a great doctor and I would disregard the person making a complaint. They tell you upfront that you can't use your insurance for these type of treatments. I am client and feel better than ever since seeing Dr. Carlson. The person making the complaint doesn't know what they are talking about.

DR CARLSON SAVED MY LIFE

AUTHOR: Nita - (U.S.A.)

Dr Robert Carlson saved my life.
My experience with Dr Carlson started at a point in my life when I was suffering with severe post menopausal symptoms. I experienced premature ovarian failure at age fourteen. I'm now fifty years old. Who lives almost forty years after menopause? I've suffered for years with insomnia, weight gain, vaginal dryness, fatigue and depression but was always able to manage through it by working hard at maintaining a positive attitude. For years, I was treated conventionally with oral estrogen and provera. I had been placed on sleeping meds and even had a trail run of anti-depressents with none to minimal relief. I finally gave up, took myself off all meds deciding these were the cards dealt to me and tried to move forward. However, over the past year, I suddenly found myself suffering with severe levels of insomnia, extreme levels of fatigue resulting with complete and utter exhaustion on a daily basis which worsened with any form of stress. I had minimal to no sex drive. Weight gain continued, no matter how I tried to exercise or diet my food intake. I was absolutely miserable!! I felt the walls closing in on me and began developing a real sense of impending doom. This seemed so unfair to me. All of my symptoms suddenly worsened and I could not work through them anymore.
I'm a young woman with a wonderful husband and family. I have fantastic friends and I have a very successful career. I have a job with some of the best employers and co-workers in the world but, I felt like I was dying inside. I went to Dr Carlson for help with weight loss at the recommendation of a friend who had been seeing him for several months and was very pleased. She was tranformed before my eyes. She began looking healthier, lost a ton of weight and looked younger. It was an amazing transformation.
The first thing Dr Carlson did was sincerely listen. He sat down with me and listened to my story. He showed great patience and compassion. Through out the visit he explained the physiological origin of my symptoms using diagrams and other documented material. To see documentation explaining why I was feeling the way I did alone was a great relief. My symptoms were real and there was a deeper reason for them. If Dr Carson were only money hungry he could have strung me along forever treating the weight gain. Instead, he asked me to be patient while he investigated the root cause for the weight gain and other symptoms. I left his office that day with a real sense of hope for the first time in years. Bloodwork was done and results proved hormones and hypothyroidism were the root problem for all my symptoms. He immediately placed me on a few simple oral meds half of them, over-the-counter dietary supplements. The results? I feel fantastic!! I feel young again. I'm losing weight. I'm happier and positive about my future. I feel physically healthier and stronger and I'm sleeping everynight. As for the sex life? Greatly improved! Just ask my husband.
Dr Carlson is a wonderful doctor. He sincerely cares about his patients. I'm living proof. I recommend him to any male or female of any age wanting to get healthier. He and his office staff have always been kind and I appreciate them too. I have recieved several rewards in my career, the most recent was presented to me for providing the best customer service at a hospital in Sarasota Florida. I think that quantifies my ability to recognize good customer service when I see it. Vicki, I'm sorry you 're reporting a different experience and I wish you the best and hope you find what you're looking for. However, I beg to differ when it comes to Dr Robert Carlson. I'll not sit quiet and allow these accusations to stand alone. There is no price tag to be placed on what he has done for me. Thanks Dr Carlson for serving your community in such a wonderful way.

A satisfied customer of Dr Robert Carlson

AUTHOR: Shannon - (U.S.A.)

I have been a patient of Dr Robert Carlson of Sarasota, FL for almost a year. Dr Carlson is one of the best physicians I have ever met. He is patient, skilled and kind, and takes as much time as the patients needs. Not only have I been very happy with the care Dr Carlson has given me, but more than 6 of the friends I have referred to see Dr Carlson have all been happy with their treatment. The problems he has helped us with range from hormonal imbalance, weight loss, and combatting aging prolems. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Carlson and his wonderful staff.
