Dr. Shaver performed a screening colonoscopy on my 86 year old grandmother. I believe his motives were purely financial given that current recommendations are to discontinue routine screening at age 75. HE TREATED MY LOVE ONE LIKE A PAYCHECK.

Review for Dr. Carter

Tooth extraction. Ask for a break on the 500$ fee. Retired, no Dental Ins. military service. Dr. said 500$ fee was a Fair fee. After extraction I researched tooth extraction fees. 500$ fee is well on High side. Not a Fair fee. I feel his practice is run on the premises of NEXT UP!.

The only regret I have is not coming sooner. I've had very little discomfort following my surgery and I'm able to do things I haven't been able to do in a long time. Dr Moul is not only a talented surgeon but her bedside manner is amazing!

Angela D Jones Jun 08 2020

Review for Dr. Moul

Do Not Go To This Person. She performed a Completely unnecessary surgery on me. I found out later that there is NO SUCH THING as a surgery to repair plantar fasciitis. She is a terrible doctor. She has ZERO oversite from Dr. Lemak. This surgery has negatively changed my life significantly.
