Dr. Carpenter is a caring and patient physician. He takes the time to make sure the patient understands the complex medical situation. He is thorough and cares enough to understand the whole patient situation.
Woodland, CA |
I have used Dr. Carpenter for my primary care doctor for over 10 years. He is always very professional and very easy to talk to. He has always found solutions and great specialists for me if need be.
in Franktown, CO |
Dr Carpenter has been our family physician for over a decade and is best described as a "doctor's doctor". His passion for ensuring the health and well being of his patients is as extraordinary as his ability to communicate with them. He is committed to patients wellness through lifestyle choices, always willing to make recommendations accordingly, and is second to none when diagnosing illness or treating injury. He is simply....the best!

I want a Dr that will listen and take time to discuss the reason I'm there, Dr Carpenter is that Dr, He found my heart condition after several others missed it. If you're looking for a great family Dr this is the office to be at.
in Elbert CO |
I misunderstood my appt/bloodwork and so they fit me in and I did not have to make a LONG drive home. They all did this cheerfully and the entire staff is so friendly and upbeat. Dr. Carpenter is a really caring physician.

Doctor Carpenter reminds me of the type of Doctor I had when I was growing up in upstate New York. He takes time to discuss my overall health issues and makes recommendations to help address all my health challenges. As an example my A1C is higher than it should be, he recommended that I read Diabetes for dummies as well more exercise and diet. There is no rush when I meet with him, just a very thorough exam. The staff is also very friendly and helpful.

Dr. Carpenter is fabulous. I followed him from his previous practice because he has always been honest with me and open to any discussion I wanted or needed to have. He has always been supportive and caring.
in Castle Rock, CO |
I liked Dr Carpenter, he spoke from the heart, he shared the facts. Just what I like from my Doctor (he was filling in for my doctor at the time).

in Denver, CO |
We have had Dr Carpenter as our primary doctor for about 15 years. Both my spouse and I really like him. He is up to date on issues and is very not rushed when talking to you! He has went as far as drawing pictures for us. Highly recommend!!
in Parker, CO |
Dr took time to get to know me a bit and asked questions before just jumping into diagnosing. I appreciated the extra time the took to really try and figure out what was going on with my sickness
in Englewood, CO |

San Jose, CA |
Dr. Carpenter is one of those Doctors that sits down and talks with you in language that you can understand which makes managing your health much easier.
in Castle Rock, CO |
This physicians office is absolutely the dirtiest, and rudest Dr office I have even imagenined. Not only do I have to wait over ten minutes each time I have ever called, I am nervous to even sit in the mangy chairs that they have in their waiting room. The main complaint that I have is their receptionist. Every time I call the office, she takes it upon herself to treat me, and others that I know that also used to go there, as nasty and rude as possible. Her attitude is disgusting.
in Castle Rock, CO |
Dr. Chris has been my doctor for years and I would trust my health and well -being to no one else. I too am following him from the demise of Plum Creek to his new organization. I cannot speak to the new organization but my review of Dr. Carpenter is the highest possible assessment.

I saw Dr Chris in June, got my medicines to carry me thru until Dec. Hopefully he will find a new home to practice so I can go back to him. I have been very happy with his professional outlook ,his listening abilities and how he explains things in laymen's terms.
in Castle Rock, CO |
Chris is a GREAT doctor - who worked at a practice owned by a self-centered goof. We never had problems with Dr. Carpenter. Practice closing 7/28 due to the owner's problems AND issues. Anyone who was a patient of record WAS NOTIFIED In May about this. We saw Chris, got records, UPDATED meds in June. Had to see the owner one day Dr. C was out, and was forced to have non-essential X-Rays (more $ to owner). Glad to be out of Plum Creek; anxious to see Dr. Carpenter in his new office.
in Castle Rock, CO |
I called today for a refill on a heart medication, they said he quit. They wouldn't let me make an appointment with any other provider or refill my medication. I called again explaining it was a critical medication and the receptionist actually hung up on me. In the past, I had an appointment with him on a Tuesday, when I called later that week for a refill I was told I needed another appointment. Always one month of meds and no refills on heart medications- all a money grab.
