He's been my Dr. starting in 1973. I only wish him the best. The effects of his retirement are watching 2 sepcialist refuse to collaborate while I watched my wife's kiddneys fail! Had my good friend and Dr. been there I know he would have taken action. You are greatly missed my brother in Christ! My God bless you and yours. Bob McIntosh

Thank you so much for the kind words, Mrs. Funk.
My relationship with Lamar Carden stretches over 40 years. An Excellent Family Physician, unfortunately he does not have the staff needed to support him. A very smart man, however I have been sent 50 miles to a hospital prepare for the wrong test, had staff send a referral to a specialist for my wife but I was the patient, multiple calls are required to contact the office and forget about call backs, prescriptions will not be confirmed through Optum RX, on and on. Horrible office support.
