The Be Well MD medical team is comprised of clinicians who are uniquely qualified in caring for older adults, using the latest medical advancements combined with compassion and dedication to seniors.
Mark Carlson, MD
Dr. Carlson is a fellowship-trained, board-certified geriatrician, internist and oncologist with almost 30 years of healthcare experience. He received his medical doctorate from Loma Linda University in California and completed his geriatric medicine fellowship at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
Prior to his move into geriatrics, Dr. Carlson spent nearly 20 years of practice in medical oncology, where serious illness had to be managed with the latest in medical technology, compassion and a trusting patient-doctor relationship. Dr. Carlson combined this experience with his strong desire to help seniors in the aging process to create Be Well MD, an in-home medical service designed specifically for older adults.
Be Well MD incorporates the highest quality medical care and also ensures patients have consistent, convenient access to the care they need and desire. Dr. Carlson’s personal mission is to help seniors live healthier and happier lives.
