  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Carter

Dr. Lawrence Carter in Hickory is the best doctor I have ever had or known. He is very professional. He stays up on medicines and checks for adverse reactions between them. He keeps up with my vital signs, blood work, and other tests. He is more than friendly, he truly cares about me. He spends all the time with me that I need with him. I never have to wait very long after I arrive until I am in a room. Then I may wait three or four minutes until he comes. I love my doctor!
