I usually only see Dr. Larsen once per year for a physical. He always makes the time to chat with me about my concerns.

Dr. Larson is WONDERFUL and has been for the decades he has been my regular physician (after John Kirkpatrick shifted to the Dare outfit). In person, he is always affable, interested, sensible, and entertaining. I have total confidence in his expertise. Outside of appointments, he is incredibly responsive to email requests for information or whatever, and he follows up. That includes his being online at 9 at night. He seems to love his work.

Dr. Larsen is not a spine specialist. At the time of my appointment, I was wracked with pain, and concerned there was something seriously wrong. I think he was wondering why I wasn´t seeing my spine specialist (I had an appointment with spine specialist in 2 days, but was in too much pain. Just wanted to be comforted in some way.) My bad, I guess. Perhaps he was as concerned as possible under the circumstances. Perhaps I expected too much...He´s probably a good doc if you need an internist. Like I said, my bad for seeing him at all. Can´t expect miracles
May 2017
Dr Larson has a great bedside manner. He takes time to discuss issues and has a good sense of humor!
