A REAL Family Doctor

Maria Carter saved my life by noticing problems that were pre- existing were NOT the cause of a quick weight gain plus other signs other doctors said were mental. I had a mitral valve damage and because she cared, I'm still alive today. During that same time period she had to argue with hospital personnel for me as I was finally (after 5 mos) diagnosed with an 8 percent working gallbladder that was basically slugde. A hospital here in Springfield told me that she needed to take care of her own people and stop sending me to them! I was appalled. They said too that I probably needed mental help as they couldn't find the cause but they never did a HIDA scan which would have found the problem quickly. She never gave up on me, not for a second. When I was put in the hospital she called me directly to see what the doctors were telling me even though she had already spoke to them. She always kept a close eye out for me even though she had a work load of her patients at her office. She also put a name to the severe tiredness and pain my body experienced and didn't just tell me I needed a phsycologist. She did a thorough lookup of this problem and has worked with me to try to have a decent quality of life. She also helped me through the care of my mother, who also was a patient, when mom went through dementia. All of Maria's nurse's and workers are such a great caring bunch of people. These people are like family to me and I'd hate to EVER lose Maria as my doctor. I will recommend this doctor to anyone who wants a caring, upfront doctor who if she doesn't know what is wrong with you, she'll find someone who can help. I truly love her and her staff.

Dr. Maria Carter is a exceptional Doctor. I come from a family of Doctors, Military Commanders, Black Ops, Engineers, etc. Maria is a Kind & Caring Dr. with more than enough Knowledge for her excellent Placement in the Medical field. I've noticed though that her Nurses etc. have gotten much "nicer" since I've read these reviews. I think they are having a positive impact on better patient/nurse relations. I'm a male patient and I have to say, Maria I Love You! Keep up the good work. I'll see you tomorrow for my appointment. Just take it a little easier on those Prostate exams! LOL! Sincerely BTL. P.S. Debbie, take it easy and go with the flow. This is a business, not the office of the German SS! Just take a Chill Pill?

Dr Carter and her staff are friendly and knowledgeable. If you want a Physician who is down to earth and listens, she is a great choice. She has performed my physicals, removed cancerous lesions from my face and diagnosed my thyroid problem.

couldn't ask for better

Dislike doctors very much, but when I didn't have a choice my wife suggested her. She has worked with me, and listened. Even though no doctors have figured out what is wrong yet, at least she always has an idea of where to go next. Many of the ideas she had off the top of her head have improved my health, not sure how useful a human I would be without her at this point. She is exceptional for the tools she has available. I'm no more important than the next guy, but she sure does her best to make it seem that way.
