Over the years being a patient of Dr. Carver's, I have found him to be honest regarding prognosis, caring regarding the end results of the surgeries which he performs, patient and attentive during the evaluation process, jovial/happy as he sees your recovery, and very sympathetic regarding his patients conditions. There is no better surgeon I know, that I would trust when it comes to my diagnosis! Period!
This is the most amazing Doctor I have ever been to. I had a 14 hour surgery in 1991 if an acoustic neuroma. Then another in 1996. He did both surgeries and he made me feel that he cared. At that time I needed emotional support and he was wonderful. I have had no problems since 1996. He saved my life!
