I have been going to optometrists since I moved to Tucson seven years ago. I knew I needed to find an ophthalmologist and chose Dr. Carter on the internet. What a great experience. The office is run professionally and efficiently by a very personable staff. There are little things for you to enjoy so that you are not bored out of your mind while waiting for your eyes to dilate. It's a 40-minute drive for me but well worth it.

The staff has been difficult to work with during an urgent eye issue. Over a 6 week long wait to even see Dr. Carter for an urgent eye problem, finally got an appt. and then it was pushed back another 10 days! Office staff has no empathy for patients, and zero ability to work with elderly patient care givers. If the staff is this difficult to work with and uncaring towards patients I am worried to see the care Dr. Carter gives to her elderly patients that need urgent care.

My experiences with Dr. Carter and her staff were all excellent. I just finished my second cataract surgery and couldn't be more pleased. The efficiency of the business impressed me as well.
