Rockford, IL |
Dr Carter is a good listener and I know she cares about me and my family. I was in a car accident years ago and broke a bone in my back. The ER doctor and neurosurgeon told me all my pain was from my back but I knew something else was wrong. So I went to see my doctor She was very thorough, and after an x ray, found out that I broke my pelvis bone, too. That neurosurgeon kept apologizing after that! Dr Carter is getting too busy lately, but I don't want to see anyone else.

Dr. Carter's bedside manner is essentially nonexistent. I found her to be unfriendly, showing no empathy & unwilling to find alternatives for treatment! My overall feeling while in her care is one of laziness & that she was a C student in med school. (She's often absent, making it difficult to schedule an appt!) After 5+ yrs of being stuck with her, (thanks to insurance issues) I was finally able to see a new PCP. The new PCP was baffled by the lack of testing I'd undergone for my conditions.
