An absolute great doctor!! Dr. Carr worked with me after I was in a motor cycle crash back in 2012. They placed a muscle graph on my lower leg and it took perfectly!! I've been walking very well since recovering thanks to that great team of doctors!! Thank you again doc, Larry Rock
Thank you for making us aware of this information, Larry! At Banner Health, we know that great doctors are the key to helping patients have a positive experience in our facilities and we will be happy to share your comment with them. Thank you, Annamaria

Dr. Carr was professional and yet personal. He did excellent surgical work and a beautiful job on the stitches. My right hand thumb was 80% destroyed with multiple fractures and complex tendon and nerve exposure. I had complete confidence in his surgical skill and capacity. My thumb currently has feeling and mobility as it continues to heal for which I am thrilled. I have no reservation recommending Dr. Carr as an exceptional hand surgeon and doctor.
What an incredible story to hear! Thank you for sharing this with us. At Banner Health, we know that great people make the experience a positive one for patients and we will be happy to share this with them. Sincerely, Annamaria

Dr. Carr is awesome. He is fast but very thorough. This is not saying he is rushing you, he just gets to the point and is very willing to answer all your questions. Very professional, friendly n courteous. He explained to me the entire procedure n made sure I understood. I highly recommend him! I know I will go back to see him if something else happens. The staff are very helpful and pleasant. They work with you on scheduling and with my case a co pay. All around was an excellent experience!
in Mesa, AZ |
Thank you, Dr. Carr for a successful journey to a recovery on my wrist. I had a very pleasant experience through the entire process. Glad I opted for surgery. At 82 years and my soft bones, it was the best option. Wrist is healing and I am in therapy now. I am back to my journey and yard work. I know, yes I am listening to my body.
in Tempe, AZ |
I highly recommend Dr. Karston Carr to anyone looking for a professional, friendly, and caring Dr. Four months ago I broke a bone in my wrist. I found Dr. Carr. He greeted me with a smile, assessed the injury and took x-rays. He kept me informed of what he was going to do and the procedure he used to evaluate my wrist. He took into consideration my needs and let me have a say in the choice of action. During the appointment he made sure I was comfortable and in the least amount of pain.

I visited Dr. Carr due to having trigger finger. The entire experience, staff, nurses, technical staff and the doctor were fantastic. They all treat the patient with respect, listen to what you have to say, and explain the condition and recommended treatment in terms a non medical person can understand. Great outcomes.
Queen Creek, AZ |
I saw Dr Carr to determine if I had a broken finger from an injury 7 months earlier because it was not healing properly. Dr Carr not only confirmed the finger had been broken, which the hospital did not catch, but he thoroughly went over what my options were and let me decide which route I wanted to take. He was personable and pleasant and I would definitely go to him again if I have need of his specialty.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Talk about "bedside manner"! Dr Carr walked into the room for our first appointment almost exactly to the time set with a smile and firm handshake. From there, he quickly provided the diagnosis and set a plan in action. My questions were all answered thoroughly and I left feeling he was both extremely confident in himself and had great respect for his patients. Three appointments later (all on time, maybe even a few minutes early), surgery was scheduled.
New York, NY |
Dr Carr was very friendly and informative. He suggested several possible solutions before we elected to have surgery. I was very happy with everything that he did and would and have recommended him to others
Mesa, AZ |
I was very impressed with how patient Dr. Carr was with me and my husband when we first met with him in his office. He explained everything to us in great detail and answered all of our questions. He didn't make us feel like we were a number, or a dollar. He is genuine, caring, thorough, knowledgeable and personable with a great deal of common sense. His surgery report reflected how meticulous and precise he was during the procedure. My healing time was fast and post op visits excellent!
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Carr was very nice and treated me with respect. I didn't feel like just another patient!
