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.
