      Dr. Carpenter a life saver. When I was in severe debilitating pain with my back, was suffering from drop foot and could not find a neurosurgeon that didn't have a two month waiting list my doctor referred him to me. I went to his office on the same day I made the appointment (Thursday) and by the end of my visit I was scheduled for all my pre op testing and he did the surgery at Valley Hospital the following Tuesday. As it turned out I had severe spinal stenosis and extremely compressed nerves in my back. He answered all of my and my family's questions and visited me at the hospital everyday to check on my progress. I cannot say enough good things about him and the ladies in his office were wonderful and extremely helpful as well!
