Columbia, SC |
This person can't think beyond what is directly in front of him. He is too old and not aware of treatment research or medical conditions for our current time. His attitude and bedside manners towards patients he treats is horrible. I don't recommend him or anyone else in his practice.

I felt it was necessary to leave a review of this practice, the staff and the facility. The office is located in the hospital, however the patient rooms and office areas are antiquated. Paper charts are stacked everywhere, exam rooms are musty and dingy. They do not accept credit cards and this is an inconvenience nowadays for most people. They also do not state their accept methods of payment anywhere on their outdated website. The office staff who work at the checkout and patient paymen

Dr Carnes is very knowledgeable when it comes to Alzheimer's disease.

This fella might understand how the brain works physically, but it stops there. He doesn't seem to understand emotions and appears to think pain is not real. He will spend plenty of time talking but really only gives you about thirty seconds to talk. The whole appointment experience with the doctor was pretty ridiculous. He needs to work on focusing on patient needs. The staff is nice but the whole office beyond the waiting room is extremely outdated in a scary way. Do not bother.

He doesn't listen at all when you tell him a particular medication does NOT work for you. His bed side manners are horrible. His staff doesn't treat you any better!

Poor listening skills . . all kf Dr. Carnes answers to my concerns made me feel like an imbecile. He didn't address my problems, only pushed them to the side! He was God Almighty, I was just a lady with a brain tumor.

He did not listen to my concerns or acknowledge my severe pain. He stated 'pain is just pain. It won't kill you when referring to debilitating headaches ongoing over 4 months without relief. He spoke over me repeatedly, told me to 'take some advil. It's just a headache'. I had been referred to him by my surgeon (I had Chiari decompression surgery), who had already determined that I did not need surgery again, but that I needed pain mngmnt. Dr Carnes did NOTHING to help me. I can't fit it here!
