Medical Records

We maintain secure digital files and extensive hardcopy medical records with notes from Dr. Carlson for all patients providing vital insight. If knowledge is power, medical knowlege means greater power to prevent, dianose and heal illnesses... something you can't get from an emergency room or commercial walk-in clinic where you enter as a stranger. There is just no subsitute for a family practice where the doctor knows you.

It's no accident D Magazine named us the "Best Doctors in Dallas" for Family Medicine. For more than 20 years, we've been healing, mending and making Texans well in a meticulously clean facility. When you come to BestCare you'll see the friendly face of a doctor you know. BestCare Family Medical Center is easy to get to and offers two choices: Our Urgent Care Center takes walk-ins—no appointment necessary. Or set an appointment online or by phone for Primary Care. Have a daytime job? We'll see you over lunch, after work or on weekends. Our in-house X-rays and lab work are less expensive, too!   Learn more...
