    Dr. Carpenter is a fantastic doctor. She is very friendly and a great listener. She spent a lot of time with me and understood my concerns. I ended up having surgery and my results and recovery were much better than I expected. I would not hesitate to have her care for myself or any member of my family. Our community is lucky to have her and I am very appreciative of the outstanding medical care that I received.
