Dr. Carter is, without question, the most talented cosmetic surgeon I have experienced in my life. She totally corrected a terrible facial noes scar and deformity with such perfection that it leaves me pleasantly stunned every time I look in the mirror. And she’s a delightful person as well!! I cannot recommend her highly enough. She changed my life.

We would not recommend Dr. Carter because we felt that her bedside manner was abrupt and unfriendly. I brought my 98-year-old mother to have a basil cell mole removed from her back. Dr. Carter didn’t do anything to relax my mom or to explain what to expect during the procedure. She wasn’t very sympathetic to the pain my mom endured from the needle. Only after my mom screeched from pain did she offer more numbing. She never asked how my mom was doing and even afterwards she didn’t seem to care much about her patient. Her staff was friendly but anxious to move us out to prepare for the next procedure. A 98 year old patient deserves better treatment then she received.

I needed breast reconstruction after a failed implant and infection post-radiation. Dr. Carter and her team were absolutely top notch. I was always greeted warmly for my appointments and it was clear from Day 1 that Dr. Carter takes her work very seriously and truly cares about best outcomes and her patients’ overall well-being. Best decision ever made!!

I met Dr Carter through my sister who had nasal reconstruction surgery. Not only did she do a fabulous job on my sister. I was able to get some rejuvenation on my face as well. She and her staff are amazingly talented and caring. I highly recommend Dr Carter she is the best. We are truly blessed to have found her.

Dr. Carter is a fantastic surgeon who cares deeply for her patients. Both she and her staff are friendly and caring and take their time explaining various options with their patients. I had an incredible experience with Dr. Carter. She performed surgery on me and I’m very pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Carter to family and friends. As a matter of fact I already have.

Dr. Carter and her staff are truly amazing. I came into Dr. Carter's office not only hurting from my physical facial scars, but I was emotionally drained from the toll the scars had put on me. Dr. Carter and her staff not only healed my scars to the point that they are no longer visible, but they made me feel like I was part of their family. I would highly recommend this office to anyone I met. Dr. Carter has changed my life for the better and I am so blessed to call her my doctor.

I went to see Dr. Carter for a facial scar revision, a procedure I considered for a few years. After researching many plastic surgeons, I made an appt to see Dr. Carter, turned out to be a great decision. She took time and care in explaining the procedure and the healing process and the results are great. (she also helped me with botox and fillers, no longer looking tired) Her staff is wonderful, both the front desk and Dr. Carter's assistants are polite, caring and very helpful

Dr. Carter injected fillers and Botox into my brow, nasolabial folds, and lips. The procedure was relatively quick and painless. The results are natural and truly amazing. I couldn’t be more pleased. I feel 10 years younger! I wouldn’t trust anyone but Dr. Carter to perform the procedure. She knew exactly what was needed to achieve superior results. The staff was professional and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was very relaxing and friendly. A.S.

I have several doctors treating me for different issues. I started seeing Dr. Carter in early 2017 and she tops the list for personality, care, concern, genuine compassion and especially "chair-side manner"! She orders needed medical supplies through my insurance for me so I do not have to pay out of pocket costs. Her staff is very friendly, helpful and courteous. I will recommend her without hesitation !!!
