My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I am able to provide a non-typical office experience where you have time to not only talk about your current health needs, but also time to plan for your future health goals. I enjoy getting to know my patients and, as your personal physician, I am able to help you achieve an ideal quality of life by providing a thorough examination and offering a personalized plan for health improvement and disease prevention, including helping you with your nutrition and physical fitness goals. 
 
I have been fortunate to serve as a private practice physician in this valley for over ten years. As Medical Director of both Rocky Mountain Home Health and Hospice and Rocky Mountain Care Skilled Nursing Facility, I have gained extensive experience and deep fulfillment working with elderly patients and their families as they transition towards end of life care. A great benefit of my affiliations with these facilities has been my ability to stay with my patients and be able to visit and care for them at their homes or at the facility when they are no longer able to come in to the office, without having to transfer their care to another physician. I am also passionate about fitness and have spent much of my life involved in dance and fitness instruction. I currently enjoy teaching several adult fitness classes at the local recreation center after office hours. Through all my experience in family practice, hospice care, and my time teaching fitness, I have developed a great appreciation for healthy lifestyle awareness and preventive care approaches to maintaining an optimal quality of life through all life stages. I am fluent in English, Russian, and Japanese.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Carlson

from Sharon in UT April 5, 2020 for Vera Carlson, MD, PhD

Years ago, when I dragged myself into Dr.Carlson's office for the first time, I was very sick , and convinced that I would soon die. I had been to a series of doctors who seemed to do nothing. However, Dr. Carlson no only convinced me that I had years to go before death, she also undertook a regime that actually improved the way I felt. She has been there for me whenever I needed her.… See more

from Sharon February 18, 2019 for Vera Carlson, MD, PhD

I am 73 years old, and my doctor, Dr. Carlson, is the best doctor I have ever had.
Dr. Carlson genuinely cares about her patients and their well being. She constantly goes the extra mile to ensure her patients receive the best care available. I know that when I visit Dr.Carlson, I am visiting a friend, as well as receiving the best medical care.
