Patient Comments (11)

I wouldn’t recommend Dr. Carro to anyone if he was the last doctor on earth! He is insensitive and does not care about the well-being of his patients. He only gives do or die treatment options and nothing in between. Either have a nerve block or surgery, which is fine but what does a patient do...more

I have been a patient of Dr Carro for over 15 years. He has always been kind, considerate and caring. I honestly don’t know how I could have managed work and day to day activities without his help and the treatments he has ordered for me. He always has time for questions and listens.

I did not get to see the doctor until 1 1/2 hours after my appointment. The doctor had not even reviewed my MRI before he came in. After less than 15 minutes, I was dismissed with no new information or treatment for my condition. I had been referred to this doctor to discuss treatment alternatives...more
