What People Say About Dr. Michael Carter, MD

I have seen Dr. Carter for many years. He is always kind and caring, and I have very high confidence in his diagnoses. I very much like how he makes himself and his staff available even if I only have a question to ask. Also, not only did he find my husband's cancer, but he found it early enough that effective treatment could be had before major bodily harm had occurred. I highly recommend Dr. Carter to anyone seeking a family physician.

Incredibly pleased. Dr. Carter is thorough, takes a lot of time to talk and LISTEN to me, and is easy to schedule for appointments. I had seen more than 10 doctors/specialists in an effort to identify what turned out to be a rare condition. He took the time to study my records and ultimately sent me to THE specialist I needed to see. I still see Dr. Carter for "normal" needs and highly recommend his practice.

I have only seen Dr. Carter a handful of times. Usually I see Marie. Hands down this is the best office I have ever visited. They are always on time and friendly.

I had a new patient appointment and won't go back. I never saw the doctor because he was "too busy to come in" and meet me but maybe he would be able to on my next appointment. I had absolutely no confidence in the PA I saw who assumed to know everything about me in the first 2 minutes we met. No one in medicine should have a God-complex. Being new to Huntsville, I now know this office is Not the right one for our family.

I have found Dr. Carter to be a thoughtful, competent, and caring physician. He gives careful consideration to my symptoms and asks specific questions before making a diagnosis of the potential cause, or causes, of my illness. His diagnoses have been generally correct and his prescribed treatments effective.
