Dr. Martin F Carr Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

My Terrible symptoms started 26 months ago reflux out of the blue, put on antibiotic from Dr Parsa helped me tremendously! Felt great for 4wks then symptoms returned progressed to losing weight started at 140 pds now 127 have been diagnosed with fat malabsortion have chronic stomach bloating/distention constant reflux endoscopies revealed chronic pangastritis(entire stomach) candida in esophagus. My third endoscopy recently by Dr Yoon shows I still have chronic gastritis. Dr Carr recently talked to me about my suffering every day and night, my quality of life is gone I continue to lose weight and decline I'm 52 yrs old was active healthy I'm a mother of 3 boys and a caregiver for people with dementia I have been to several GI Dr's over the past 2 yrs Very disappointed and saddened at the lack of concern or compassion. I have done a lot of research on my symptoms and signs of my stomach(gastritis) and always comes back no.1 reason for chronic pangastritis is H pylori , fat malabsorption can be and typically caused by bacterial overgrowth SIBO I'm absolutely miserable! And scared of losing more weight, I need to take care of others and wrk. I hoped Dr Carr would look at all my tests and signs and symptoms and at least try me on low dose antibiotic to see how I respond But instead seems he's very bothered that I have research my symptoms trying to find answers and be well again. He doesn't agree with the research studies from Mayo clinic or NIH and many others. He told me it's normal to have chronic gastritis,normal to have candida of the esophagus and dismisses my progressive weight loss and horrible bloating and distention after everything I eat. I look like I'm 5 months pregnant. Dr Carr just seemed to make up something that had No basis, he was only interested on putting me on drugs instead of finding the root cause of the problem. Gastritis left untreated can lead to ulcers and stomach cancer. I told him I will pay out of my pocket for specialized DNA H pylori testing The most accurate way to know for sure. He just made me bad, laughs and says You don't t have H pylori! Well We'll see shat lab says. H pylori is very fragile bacteria outside of body most tests can give false negatives because of lab error, human error and the bacteria dies when exposed to air. I will go to a naturalpath Dr. At least they look listen and don't just throw you a dangerous drug. None of these symptoms or normal they are typically caused by bacterial overgrowth. Sadly Dr's are very bothered if you have knowledge of medical research. Dr's need to work with the patient not against them. They are Not above us who don't have M.D after our name.

Fullerton's Dr. Carr worth the inconvenience of getting in touch with him.

Dr. Carr is great; cares about patients and works hard to find out what's wrong, but getting through to him or to even leave a voice mail can be difficult. I don't know if the staff is overwhelmed or just not large enough, but I've been on hold for 10-15 minutes just to make an appointment.
