Dr. Tracy L Carter has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. After seeing her about my foot pain, she diagnosed it as being arthritis. However, after the pain persisted, I went on the internet to see what it could possibly be. All of my symptoms pointed to diabetes. I subsequently went back to her and asked for a diabetes test. The test came back positive. I should not have had to return and request this test. Dr. Carter is not a caring person. She never smiles, and made me feel as though I was imposing on her time. She rushed in the room after having waited about 45 minutes, spent about 2 to 3 minutes with me and that was it. I have since changed doctors and will tell anyone never to use her.
The Dr basically reprimanded us for not having used a PCP for the last year and a half without knowing the reason for our decision. My husband was on disability and we could not afford the over 100.00 for an office visit for things like colds and viruses. She didn't like the idea that we had done some research on our daughter's symptoms on our own. When we mentioned our concerns she said "Well it could even be Leukemia, Juvenile Arthritis...." she went on to mention several other scary diseases that the parent of a 5 year old doesn't need to hear. Especially before the Dr has even examined the child. We found Dr Carter to be rude, pompous and down right scary. She has NO bedside manner at all.
