I really like Dr. Carter, whom I have only seen twice since my GP retired. I have also contacted him via the portal e-mail system. In person as well as via email, he is a very clear communicator, is always able to assist me, responds in a timely manner and has a pleasant personality.

Dr. Carter is as good as they come!!! Supreme bedside manner! Questions and examination were thorough. Diagnosis right on the money. He made treatment and preventative recommendations that were amazingly thorough. We felt an instant connection with Dr. Carter -- we were at ease and fully trusting. If we were looking for a different primary physician, Dr. Carter would be our choice!

I have been a patient of Dr. Carters for a long time, and I have seen and evaluated many doctors through the years. it is my opinion that Dr. Carter is hands down, the best doctor I have ever had the privilege to be associated with. in addition to his medical knowledge and professional manner,it is very obvious that he really cares for his patients sincerely. If he were ever to leave his current practice, I would follow him wherever he want. He is the best !!!
