Dr. Carter was first recommended to me when I needed an urgent operation. Since then, I've requested him for two subsequent elective procedures. He's professional, kind, caring, easy to talk with and explains everything so you know just what to expect. When my husband needed surgery, I knew Dr. Carter would take good care of him. I would highly recommend him!!

He's excellent but I really don't want surgery. I have polyps in my gallbladder. However, I trust his opinion.
