Professional staff and Dr. Carey seemed confident and relaxed. I had a minor problem a few days after the procedure and contacted his office and they gave me an appointment at 8:00 am the next day. He looked at the surgery site and fixed the problem. You can't beat that type of customer service.

I have a HUGE fear of going to any doctor for anything and unfortunately I had a rare and complicated surgical need, something that Dr. Carey nor his staff had encountered before. I must say him, his wife and staff made me feel comfortable and secure that they could help me and sure enough I trusted them and they were AMAZING! I can't say enough thank you's to them for all they did to help me! I'm so grateful he was recommended to me and I will definitely recommend him to others. Thank you again Dr. Carey, Mrs. Carey and your staff!

I can not recommend Dr. Chris Carey. Following routine surgery I developed a serious infection that required almost two weeks of hospitalization during which I had massive antibiotics, blood transfusions, oxygen, drains and a great deal of pain for many months. He disregarded early signs of infection which allowed it to progress to life threatening proportions. He has yet to admit the surgery he performed was the obvious cause of my illness.
