Care Philosophy

I believe that every person needs to be treated as an individual. She needs to be in charge of her care and have as much information that is needed to make an informed choice. Patients need support from family, health care providers and others in their time of need.Read more

Oceanside, CA |
Dr. Carpenter is amazing! She explained my diagnosis to me thoroughly and why certain treatments were necessary. She is knowledgeable and an excellent surgeon. She performed a lumpectomy and my breast looks great. It doesn't look like I had surgery. My scar healed quickly and no longer visible. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a surgeon without hesitation.
