What People Say About Dr. Robert Carpenter Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I regret that I went with my OB referral on this one. Parking is an absolute disaster, most of the time self parking is impossible because lot is full. VIP is $10. Carpenter shares tiniest office with two cardiologists. You get your vitals checked in the hallway, literally. Bedside manner is mediocre. He gets very irritable if things are not done the exact way he wants them. Every Visit you have to strip your pants down to your knees which is absolutely unnecessary.

Very knowledgeable doctor! You can tell right away he has passion and loves what he does. He knows what he's talking about and backs up what he says and is direct, but not rude. I can appreciate that in a dr. He doesn't rush with my ultrasounds and answers all my questions in a thorough manner. One of the best doctors I've been to. Will be coming back to him when we are pregnant with our 2nd.
