I am pleased to have Dr. Carter a my surgeon. I saw him frequently in the hospital and my visit prior to surgery answered all my questions.
Richmond, VA |
Dr Carter is a kind, compassionate, excellent surgeon. He is a good listener and explains things in a very easy to understand professional manner. I would highly recommend Dr Carter if you are in need of a surgeon.

Dr. Carter is very professional . He does not rush his appointments and he is takes the time to listen to his patients . He is proactive and really cares! I'm fortunate to have him as my physician .

Facing surgery most often brings apprehension and anxiety. In late summer 2015, those emotions, and others, were exactly what I was experiencing. My family doctor recommended Dr. Carter and an initial appointment was quickly made. Dr. Carter and staff immediately made me feel at ease and explained the upcoming procedure, all the while giving me options to consider. Recovery from surgery was rapid. Dr. Carter and staff have continued to provide exceptional care during follow up visits.
in Glen Allen, VA |
Dr. Carter is not only a skilled surgeon but a genuinely caring, compassionate and interested physician. He would garner a "10" in every respect of care!
in Richmond, VA |
I would recommend Dr. Carter without hesitation. I will never ever again need to look for a surgeon if the need arises, because I have found the surgeon, that I can say if he doesn't operate, no one will!!!! He has a demeanor that puts you instantly at ease. He takes the time to ensure you have all the information you need to make decisions regarding your health. His office staff is a reflection of him as well. NEVER have I had a need that was not addressed in a timely fashion.
in Richmond, VA |
Dr. Carter is wonderful! My son has a very hard to figure out illness and has been suffering for two years. He's always willing to listen and never talks down to you. I recommend him 100%!
I felt very comfortable with the information he provided and his abilities.
Very knowledgable and personable!!!
