Dr. Carlisle looks good on paper (Baylor, UCLA, valedictorian, etc) and he presents confidence in himself as a professional (which is reassuring), but I found him to be unfriendly, arrogant, defensive, and without bedside manner. In person he always asks if you have any questions (which is great), but if you ask more than two, he acts put out, appears impatient, and starts looking away. Over email his answers to questions were OK, but he did not respond to all of my questions. Scheduling at his current office (Kaiser) was a very upsetting experience (cancellation after cancellation on their end).

I also spoke to another patient who met with him. Dr. Carlisle told the gentleman he couldn't help him with his pain and structural back problems, but this same gentleman saw one of his colleagues, Dr. Matan, and was found to be treatable and underwent surgery. This patient also shared my displeasure with his bedside manner.

I wish I could comment on his medical/technical competence with confidence but I cannot. I tried to get an honest opinion from a nurse or CNA about him, but they stayed professional and said "he's good." He scribbled the surgery pen on my incision spot very quickly and imprecisely, but perhaps that's because he is very good and my procedure was quite simple (but is it ever appropriate to be casual when it comes to back surgery?). He probably is a good technician, but the human interaction was greatly lacking in compassion, listening, friendliness, and top-notch professionalism. I would not recommend him to others.
