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.
in Germantown, TN |
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.
Thank you very much for sharing these comments, Susan Thompsin. We appreciate the positive feedback for Dr. Carro.
Memphis, TN |
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.

Was an excellent visit.
Melvin Uzzell, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback.
in Bartlett, TN |
The Practice he works for Ive been involved with since I was a child for my issue, as an adult I had to see Dr. Carro as my original physician only dealt with minors. He is very dismissive, hardly listened to me with my aggravated issues. He saw the new MRI and since there was a major progression and I dont need surgery again he didnt need to see me. Had major flare ups and had to take off work and he would only approve the 2 days I saw him not wanting to consider my past history. NOTRECOMMENDE

Totally incompetent. He has been treating me for 7 months for the wrong thing.
