Dr. Carter is by far the best general care provide I've ever had. If he ever decided to leave EFM, I would follow him for sure. He's very quick and precise, but he's still very good at helping with questions, discussing anything related to my health, and is especially good at providing new information which we can discuss together.

This particular provider is very popular. Long lead times are the only reason I would hesitate to recommend him.

He did seem concerned and wanted to help but he didn't know much about my condition. I did appreciate his referral option though.
