DR. CARLIN HAS BEEN GREAT TO WORK WTIH
  Overall Patient Rating - September 2019
Dr. Carlin continues to provide the best possible care. I'm amazed when I hear about others issues with their docs because Dr. Carlin has always been top notch. I appreciate him so much. He takes time to listen and talk with me, thoroughly giving explanations and information, always showing concern about any issues I may be dealing with and has always been supportive of paths I may want to try, like diet. Dr. Carlin is the best.

I appreciate Dr. Carlin's knowledge and expertise, and that he always takes time to answer my questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Dr Carlin is outstanding. He remembers all of our conversations, and I know he genuinely cares about my full health, not just the condition he sees me for. In an age, where I am generally seeing declining service across all industries; Dr. Carlin continues to provide outstanding care that shines above everyone else. I consider Dr. Carlin to be more of my primary care physician than my actual physician. I recommend him to any of my friends and coworkers who need to see a rheumatologist. I will be genuinely sad when he eventually retires.

I've already recommended Dr. Carlin to others and they have been to see him.

I am so fortunate to be working with Dr. Carlin! With multiple complex autoimmune diseases, Dr. Carlin has provided care, early treatment, and guidance that I pray will keep me around for decades to come. I am hoping for a smooth transition with his retirement and am thankful for the time I have with him.
