Birmingham, AL |
Not good. Never saw doctor in less than one hour past appt time; usually hour and a half. Hurried, forgetful, scattered. Poor decision; please, Dr. Carr, your patients deserve better.
Mulga, AL |
I have been experiencing awful knee and shoulder pains. When one of my friends recommended I go to Dr. Carr, I tried it out and sure enough, he did surgery on me and my shoulder and knees feel brand new.
in Mobile, AL |
I had horrible shoulder pain for a long time that was keeping me from getting good sleep. A friend referred me to Dr. Carr. He diagnosed it as bone spurs. He tried shot therapy for a few times, which is standard protocol because that works for some people, but the pain always returned. So he recommended surgery and I agreed. It took a good while to totally recover to 100%, probably about 6 months, but my shoulder is now as if nothing ever happened and I never have any pain anymore. Great Doctor!
