Dr. Carpenter's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Carpenter "I welcome the opportunity to serve the Southwest Washington community. I have treated patients from all walks of life, including everyone from physicians to dock workers, from lawyers to loggers, from employed to unemployed, youth to the most elderly.

I have been in the same practice for 17 years and have been involved with scientific clinical research. I am also an inventor with a patent for a new, more anatomic artificial disk."
