AFTER EYE EXAM DR. CARPENTER CAME IN THE ROOM STATING I NEEDED SURGERY AND WAS ONLY WASTING MY TIME AND MONEY IF I CHOSE TO GET GLASSES.HE THEN LEFT THE ROOM,I TOLD THE GIRL I NEEDED MORE TIME TO THINK ABOUT THIS AND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE GLASSES FIRST.THE GLASSES WERE ALL WRONG,WHY WOULD I WANT SOMEONE TO OPERATE ON MY EYES WHEN HE COULDN'T EVEN MAKE SURE MY EYE PERSCRIPTION WAS CORRECT..
It's easy to get an appointment with Dr. Carpenter. I have been to his Lake Mead office. What I did not like was that he only spends less than 3-5 minutes with you. Also, he has awful bedside manners. He seems like a child who is about to throw a temper tantrum. He snaps his fingers at his employees. In one case he did not understand my parent, and he got impatient and snapped at his assistant to interpret for him. I think this is a true lack of professionalism. Dr Carpenter does not know how to patient with people. I would not return to this doctor again.
