He is a blessing!

Dr. Carter was an experience I wasn't prepared for; a doctor who actually cared and didn't rush me. I had breast cancer and he could not have been more understanding and sympathetic to my concerns. He explained my options thoroughly and patiently. He has a positive attitude which is helpful at a time like that. My calls were returned in a timely manner and his staff is wonderful. They do not make you feel like a nuisance or a fool. I feel blessed to have had Dr. Carter as my surgeon and highly recommend him.

Excellent & caring

Very few doctors still have that personal touch in their bed side manner. Dr. Carter is excellent. He came back often as did his nurse to check on me. He called me himself with my results, how many doctors still do that!
