Dr. Carter is absolutely wonderful! He puts his patients first! He has been treating my knee for about 4 years now. We're doing everything we can to prevent a knee replacement at this time due to my age. He is always professional and extremely knowledgeable. Total joint replacement he is tops! So glad he's there when I need him. And I don't want to leave out his wonderful secretary Lisa Sheppard. She is beyond friendly and helpful not just to me but to everyone she comes in contact with.

I've been seeing Dr. Carter off and on for the past few years with my knee problem. He always takes his time, explains my options for treatment, and doesn't make me feel like I ask stupid questions. I'm very pleased and happy with Dr. Carter, and would refer him to anyone
