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 until those options are scheduled, just remain in pain? He never gave me anything for pain throughout the entire process and keeps suggesting that I can take tramadol, a medication that I'm allergic to.

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 waited 7 days before calling for MRI results. I was told doc plans to review the "things" found in an appoint they FYA'd for me in 2 days. I get there & there NO appoint set up. So, I waited over 1hr for them to come out & ask me for my CD & the transcripts? And 1.5 hrs later doc rudly tells me what any blind man with hands & no doctorate could've "You need to lose weight or no surgeon will touch you." Well, What I have you can't operate on anyway it needs chemotherapy...DOC!

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 and all he suggested was taking NSAIDS. Needless to say I would not recommend this doctor or this clinic to anyone. This visit was just a waste of time and money.

Dr Carro took the time to listen and really cares about me as his patient. My insurance company will no longer cover the medicines I need and Dr. Carro worked very hard to find an alternative to help me deal with my back pain. I highly recommend this doctor if you are looking for a good doctor.

I find the negative reviews very disconcerting, as I have gone to Dr. CArro for many years and have found him such a gentleman and most caring. I write down my questions so he might see all my concerns. He has always answered every question and more. I am a devoted patient to him and his. Staff. They are breaths of fresh air in the world of hurried,uncaring doctors.

I left Dr. Carro feeling absolutely disgusted with the care, or lack there of, I received. He showed absolutely no compassion and seemed completely inconvenienced to answer any of my questions. He provided no treatment plan beyond the fact that I would likely live in pain and needed to visit a pain clinic. His nurse was FURIOUS when we requested a copy of my MRI, as we will definitely be consulting another physician.
