Patient Comments (3)

I went to Dr. Carter for 4 years and he was a great doc. 2 months ago he recommended I go to a pain specialist. I went, and then 2 weeks later he sent me a registered letter, discharging me from his practice for going to another PCP! I only did what he recommended, and was discharged for absolutely no reason. I had sent many people to him because I thought he really cares about my healthcare. Since I would only be going twice a year , he let me go completely. A money thing for sure!!

I would not recommend this doctor to my worst enemy. I will no longer take anyone of my family members to this entire practice because of him. Accusing someone who has suffered from chronic pain and can prove he has been in pain management for 11 years of being a pill seeker and telling him to find a new doctor is, in my opinion, unprofessional. He cared more about himself and his license then the care of who was supposed to be his patient.

Dr. Carter is an excellent physician....not only for his knowledge about health issues that his patients have but their total state of condition. He is caring and his staff is wonderful. My husband and I have been patients of his since his arriving in the area and setting up his practice and I have recommended him to my own Mother and my husband's parents were also patients of his. In short, he is excellent!!!
