About Me

Care Philosophy

As an otolaryngologist, I try to treat everyone like I would treat my mother. She would be disappointed in me if I did anything else. I try to be caring, kind, and compassionate, but most of all I want the patient to know I care and want them to have the best experience possible.

Dr Carpenter was amazing he did my daughters tubes, my other daughters tonsils and most recently my sons tubes.

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
