Patient Comments (4)
in West Roxbury MA |
I've been going to Dr. Carr for a couple of years. I find her very genuine, competent, efficient and caring. When my results from my blood tests came back, I received 2 letters of the results on the MGH Patient gateway and a vm from Dr. Carr sharing the results. I like her and will continue going to her because I trust her.

Worst experience, I would never recommend anybody to her if i do that means i am sending someone to harm's way. She is disoriented and forgetful. No co-ordination with the team/nurses. She hardly sits with the patient, most of the time she will be out looking for God knows what? And when she comes back she forgets what she discussed earlier. You cannot ask anything to her, she never answers. She may be suffering from something, she is not fit to practice.
Mattapan, MA |
I was looking for a new primary and decided I would try Dr. Carr. I've been so unhappy with her office that I decided to leave. The front desk is rude. I called a few times and got hung up on. I also got letters about missing appointments that I didn't even schedule. The office is unorganized and the staff is so rude. Don't bother!
