Dr. Carlyle is the best. He is a caring, professional, and knowledgeable doctor. He is always willing to answer questions and he treats me with respect and dignity in all matters. He has never "talked down" to me or belittled my opinions, concerns, or questions. He truly listens. Dr. Carlyle has several times demonstrated dedication that goes beyond normal expectations. Even when he says things I don't like to hear, I know he has my best health interests in mind; making it is easy to respect him and give careful consideration to his words.

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.
