Accepting New Patients?


​​​​​​Professional Backg​round 

In 1994, Dr. Carlson, or "Dr. C" as many of her patients fondly call her, received her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine. She completed her residency in pediatrics in 1998 shortly before coming to Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. In 1992, she received her Ph.D. from Baylor College of Medicine.
“I love working with babies and children, and enjoy watching them develop and flourish into young adults. ​​​​It has been a great honor to have my former patients select me to be the pediatrician for their own children."​

Professional Associ​​ations

Dr. Carlson is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Texas Medical Association, Harris County Medical Society and Houston Pediatric Society.

Hobbies and Int​​erests

Dr. Carlson enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, visiting the zoo, frequenting museums, and watching crime dramas. ​​In addition to pediatrics, she loves animals, insects, and fossils. She enjoys arts and crafts, singing in the choir, reading, and completing word and number puzzles.

​I work hard to be thorough and up-to-date and at the same time, I educate my patients and their parents so we can work together as a team. So when my patients visit, we not only learn together, we have fun together!
