I visited Dr. Carter for a 6month follow up after knee surgery. As always he entered with a smile and his no nonsense sense of humor. He is an awesome Dr.. great bedside manner with a witty personality. He doesn't hold back telling me exactly what I should be doing post op for the maximum flexibility of my new knee. he begins and ends his appointments with a handshake and smile I absolutely adore this Doc

Dr Carter knows his stuff, and I look forward to finishing up my p t, and finishing up another chapter in my recovery. By the time he gets done with me, I'll be almost as good as the $6 Million Dollar Man. :-)

My latest visit to Dr. Carter was for a continual stiff shoulder. Luckily, I do not need doctor visits too often, but years ago, Dr. Carter was recommended to me. His thoroughness, his plain and simple explanations, and his ability to make you feel like a deserving patient are huge qualities to me. He finds the problem quickly. He gets me on the road to recovery just as quickly. Dr. Carter and his staff are quick to respond to any question or request. I could not ask for more.

I felt very comfortable and at ease when I met Dr Carter Very caring and very good at explaining what my best options were. With me Being under 50yrs old Carter recommended we hold off on a knee replacement as long as we could but it got so bad the replacement had to be done. Sept 2017 knee was replaced, April 2018 pain was worsening. X-rays always looked fine but after 7mos & then a bone scan...the Knee Hardware has loosened from my bone and I now have to have a total revision. Very Sad
