Dr Carreira is bright caring competent and diligent. My son was diagnosed with IBD indeterminate. I truly appreciate Dr Carreira’s efforts to look at root causes of inflammation, think outside the box, educate us, consider all treatments and best help him. I am very fortunate my son is being treated by Dr. Carriera. I highly recommend him.

I have had four visits with Dr Carreira and have total confidence in his medical ability. His bedside manner is exceptional. Dr Carreira is a good listener and will spend the necessary time needed to help resolve your issue. He will place you at ease making you comfortable within uncomfortable situations.

I have been seeing Dr. Carreira for 7 or 8 years for IBS and possible inflammatory bowel disease. He is, by far, one of the three best doctors I've ever had in my life (and I've had quite a few). He is patient and kind, listens without interrupting, is never EVER dismissive of my symptoms, and most importantly, knows what he's doing and always has an action plan that doesn't necessarily involve meds. Most other doctors could take a page out of his book!
