Patient Testimonials

  • Drs. Brent and Carol Sue Carlson are top notch. Not many have a genuine care about their patients. All the doctors and staff I worked with at Oakleaf Medical and Chippewa Valley Orthopedics & Sports Medicine give a new meaning to patient care. They are a group of doctors who own these facilities and in my opinion are a model for all hospitals and clinics to follow. Not once did I feel like a number or another body. I was treated like part of a family. I have shared these fine physicians with many I know. They are a blessing to the medical community!

  • Thank you so much!

    Dr. Carol Sue Carlson and Sissy for all your caring and compassion that you have shown me. Your cheerfulness has set me at ease everytime I walked into your office. I could not have asked for better people to help me through this ordeal. It truly has been a pleasant experience meeting both of you. You are so wonderful! I hope our paths will cross again someday under more favorable circumstances. Thanks!

  • Dr. Carlson changed my life and never gave up on helping me.

    I fell down the stairs 5 years ago and broke my foot. My foot wouldn’t heal like a normal break did. The calcium was gone in my bone on the X-ray. My tendon was also torn and I had nerve damage. I went through over 70 physical therapy sessions, 6 cortisone injections, acupuncture, and 6 PRP injections. Nothing seemed to help. Dr. Hesse (another helpful doctor) referred me to Dr. Carlson. We tried a 6 day trial of a spinal cord stimulator. 6 days later I told her that it didn’t work and that it wasn’t for me. Here is what I am thankful for… Dr. Carlson ordered an X-ray and realized the electrodes slipped down in my back. She said we could try the spinal cord stimulator again, and we did. I normally couldn’t walk more than 10-15 min. and I was walking past that- almost an hour. My foot is not 100% awesome but it is so much better than what it was. With my spinal cord stimulator remote control I can put it on low, if it’s a good day, medium, or high if it’s a bad day. My son who was 11 at the time said the biggest difference was after the spinal cord stimulator (was implanted) I didn’t cry everyday if that doesn’t say the change made a huge difference- I don’t know what does. I still have my challenges of inflammation and bad days and nights but I thank God I had Dr. Carlson who never gave up on helping me and improved my quality of life.
