I definitely can recommend Dr. Carruth and his staff. During my recent visits to his office (Nov. and Dec. 2020 for skin surgery all the persons I have met were professional and polite. The surgery itself went without any issues. The technique used for treating and closing the wound is fantastic.

Office personnel and staff were very friendly and helpful. What really impressed me were 1. They took the time to explain what they were doing and why 2. They were very nice and polite to each other and it didn't seem fake. All around a very pleasant experience considering it was a cancer removal on my face.

Dr. Carruth and his staff are a rare combination that deliver total patient care. Not only was Dr. Carruth extremely proficient in performing a surgery that had aesthetic implications, but he and his staff also demonstrated a level of care that I rarely see as a patient today. He and his staff initially explained the procedure in detail, adeptly answered any questions, and most impressively followed-up by phone AND through written correspondence. I have also healed without incident much more quickly than my medical history often allows me to, likely due to the clear and explicit post-surgery instructions. I certainly hope to be able to avoid surgery of this type in the future, but if I do, Carolina Skin Surgery Center is where I would choose to go.

Dr. Carruth is one of the best doctors I’ve ever seen. I was very apprehensive about my procedure and he took great care in explaining it and listening to my concerns. His staff was also friendly and took great care of me. I’m 2 weeks post op and everything is healing nicely. I feel very fortunate that my dermatologist referred me to him for mohs surgery.

Dr. Carruth was super flexible with appointments and really cared about how I was feeling about my treatment plan. He made sure I always had a future appointment set until my healing process was done. Wonderful wonderful doctor.

Dr. Carruth and his staff were amazing. They thoroughly explained the procedure and patiently answered all of my questions. They treated me as if I was the only patient they were seeing the entire day despite a busy, packed schedule. Dr. Carruth followed up with a hand written note. In addition, I called the office post surgery to ask a question about recovery and they immediately addressed my questions and made time to see me right away to ensure my recovery was going as planned. I can not say enough about what a positive experience I had at their office.

Great doctor. Communicates well with soft and caring demeanor. Thorough explanation of how he planned to perform the surgery including options depending on what he found during the actual procedure. He even sent a personalized card after the surgery thanking me for placing my trust in he and his staff and reminding me to contact him if if any problem surface or if I have any questions…..first doctor that I’ve ever seen do such a nice gesture. Staff very friendly, accommodating and caring. Facility is clean with convenient parking. Will certainly see him again if the need arises.
