Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Carpenter was amazing he did my daughters tubes, my other daughters tonsils and most recently my sons tubes. He was so personable and caring- he even carried my son back to surgery which is almost unheard of as the nurse usually does this. We had absolutely no complications and it has been over a year and he has not had an infection since! Highly recommend.

Our consult with Dr. Carpenter was so encouraging. Our 7-year-old is not a good patient: she has a lot of anxiety and fidgeting with any doctor appointment. Dr. Carpenter handled her like a pro--she was laughing the whole time he talked with us. His explanation of her condition and what would happen after surgery was excellent. I would highly recommend him to anyone who suffers from anxiety because he alleviates it from the moment he comes to the waiting area to call you in--personally!

He was waiting in the room for me. I also saw him call upon his own patients. He was thorough and spoke clearly so I could understood. He's absolutely wonderful!

Dr Carpenter has done surgeries on all 3 of our children and he is simply the best. We waited to get in to see him because with the previous experiences we wouldn't see anyone else. He is amazing with children. Thanks doc
