Judgmental & rude. Saw her a few times before I switched doctors because every appointment I had with her was a smug lecture with no solution offered.

Dr. Carter has no personality. She is obsessed with weight and BMI and borderline body shames her patients. She orders unnecessary blood work quite frequently -- I actually said to her at one point that I feel that she has me come in for "check-ups" just so insurance will be billed.

I recently transferred to Lahey Amesbury from Lahey Burlington and was connected with Dr. Carter. I was initially hesitant to see her based on some negative reviews online, but I've found this to be unfounded as all of my interactions with her have been great. Dr. Carter is thorough, professional, and pleasant. I am overweight and while risks of obesity were certainly discussed, it was covered in a fact-based, research-oriented manner and Dr. Carter outlined various weight loss resources.
