Office Visit

"Great Doctor - He is a great doctor I have been with him for years and he goes to the wall for a patient .With all my health problems with my back and has helped me the whole way. I would not see anyone else but him. he is the best"



"Excellent Doctor and Team - I am into week one of my 360 back surgery and already walking around well. Him and his personal staff are very attentive and caring. I felt I made the right choice since he had already been highly recommended. I would definitely recommend him for anyone dealing with surgical spine treatments. His staff alone are excellent I must say again from his PA down to the office personnel.The only criticism I could think of was the hospital I was admitted to. They were very friendly but felt like they could handled some situations better but this is still not his staff. All in all this is someone you can trust and what people reading reviews want to make sure of. If you need a skilled surgerion Dr. Kendall Carll was excellent!"



"Very Impressed - I actually tried to get into see one of his partners but he could not see me for 3 weeks. I was able to see Dr. Carl the same week I called. He went over my whole history with me. I was especially impressed at how long he spent describing my xrays to me. He perscribed physical therapy for me and then wants to see me back. I am going to send all of my friends to him."



"GREAT - Dr. Carll and his staff were excellent. They always ran on time and I did not feel rushed at all during my visit. His assistant Will was very compassionate and showed a true interest in my condition. Dr. Carll was very intelligent and always tried conservative methods before doing surgery that went great!"
