Dr. Carter operated on my esophageal hernia last Spring. I found him to be skilled & knowledgeable about my condition and very understanding of the pain I was feeling. The surgery went exactly as he said it would; the recuperation went well. I followed his instructions to the letter and healed rapidly. I would recommend Dr. Carter as he took the time to answer my questions and explain the surgery to me so that I could understand. I felt as though we were a "team" helping me get better
