He is very personable and very caring. He spends a lot of time with his patients. If he can't fix your problem he will refer you to a dr he thinks is fitting for your condition. I would refer him to anyone.

I have used Dr. Carnel for years. He put a shot in my neck and it for better. I was down all last spring with my back. Dr. Carnel gave me 2 shots in my back a month ago part and I was so grateful. I'll be 86 my birthday and I've got fishing to do. Thank you to everybody there.

I have been a patient of Dr. Carnel's for over a year. I can honestly say I could not walk or stand without excruciating pain. He performed two blocks and I am doing great. He also gave me a shot in my knee when I hurt it and fixed that problem as well. Everyone was courteous and efficient. Thank you Dr. Carnel and staff!

I coach basketball at Hoover High School and after a back injury during practice I was desperate for relief as we were headed to state. We refer players to Dr.Carnel and given his solid reputation as a leader in his field I scheduled an appointment with him. During our first meeting he tailored a personal treatment plan that he explained thoroughly. He followed up periodically monitoring my progress. After re-injuring my back he scheduled me for a block the next day. He exceeded my expectations.
Birmingham, AL |
Did not administer one of the 2 injections requested by the referring physician. Did not communicate to patient, patient's spouse, or referring physician that he was not going to do the injection. Did not document this in the medical record. Lied to the patient about why the 2nd injection was not performed.

I had lived with pain in my back for years, Dr Carnel gave me a shot in my back and it has lasted years. So I would recommend him in a heart beat.
Birmingham, AL |
Poorly explained my condition and treatment options. Didn't even bother to follow up with me after diagnostic injections. I also was not told what to expect and treated rudely by another doctor at this practice as well.

Dr. Carnel is a very caring doctor. I saw him for the first time yesterday. He has a very impressive bedside manor. He took a lot of time with answering my questions as well as showing me my MRI pictures and explaining to me what is causing my problems. I am not easily impressed on first visits, but I was very impressed.
