I did not have to sit in waiting room forever, I was out of his office by the time my appt was. The nurses were great and polite and then I waited maybe 5 minutes and then Dr. Carey came in, we talked about my situation, he explained the procedure and asked if I had any questions, which I did not. He never made me feel rushed to get out like some Dr.'s do. I was very impressed with Dr,. Carey and thank you to all that work at the office for being so great to me.

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.
