I have been a patient of Dr. Carlyle's for over 10 years. He has taken great care of me (and of my wife, who is also his patient). One outstanding characteristic of Dr. Carlyle's is that he listens carefully to what we say about how we are feeling when we come for an appointment.

Dr. Carlyle always takes time with me. He is always polite and understanding. He makes me feel like he truly listens to me. He is excited when i reach goals and make progress with my health issues. His office staff is organized and very professional. I have had several family members go to him with their health care needs and they have all been impressed with his care and instructions.

Dr. Carlisle was a pleasure to meet and he was open to first of all my questions, and then he asked his own and on various subjects. We agreed to disagree. But I appreciate his honesty and openness and I look forward to meeting with him in the future.

Dr. Carlyle is outstanding. Very knowledgeable. Excellent patient interaction. Takes time to explain things. Interested in the "whole" patient.

Dr. Carlyle is a very good physician. He takes time to answer my questions, encourages me to take necessary steps on how I can improve my health, but he also tells me what I am doing right. I find him to be kind, courteous and respectful. I would recommend Dr. Carlyle to family and friends.

Dr. Carlyle made me feel like he truly cares about my health and well-being. He was very thorough and professional in his approach to determining the root cause of my problem. He took time to explain in detail some of the potential causes. I am very thankful that he continues to be my primary care physician.

I tested positive for Covid-19 11/13/20. I was hospitalized two days later; I am still being treated for Post Covid Syndrome. Dr Carlyle and his nursing staff, Tonya, Emily, Haven, have been with me every step of the way. Dr C. has been my biggest cheerleader in supporting me these many months of treating my various symptoms and ongoing issues. Thank you, Dr Carlyle, for caring for both my parents, my husband, and children. You are the benchmark for what Family Medicine in our community is meant to be.
