Dr. Carter is as competent and skilled a surgeon as one could hope for. After years of back pain, with no relief, I asked for a consultation with him. He showed me the X-Rays he ordered, revealing Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, which he suspected, but he also found evidence of Cervical Stenosis. I then had an MRI, which confirmed his diagnosis. The 2nd of 2 procedures (lumbar) was 4 weeks ago. Even with some normal recovery pain, I can tell the pain in my spine is gone! I'll soon be walking pain free.

Very unconcerned about our visit. Checked his phone 3 times in 10 minutes of me being in his office. He did surgery on me in 2012 and this was a terrible visit. I also waited 4 months to get into him and he offered no treatment plan
