Dr. Carpenter is an amazing doctor. When I tore up my ankle in a bicycle accident, she put it back together so that I got better faster than anyone expected. I believe she is the best orthopedic surgeon in Kansas City. Ray Pritchard Shawnee, Kansas

Dr Carpenter is very thorough and caring. She saw me through 2 fractured hips in 2018 She errs on the side of caution and is meticulous in her care. She explains treatment in an easy to understand way and always has time to answer my questions and address my concerns.

I fractured and dislocated my ankle in the winter of 2019. I was so glad to have Dr. Carpenter in my corner. She and her staff were not only amazing care providers, but dedicated advocates while I went through the healing process. I couldn't imagine a better healthcare experience.

I do not think I could have found a better or more professional surgeon if I tried. Dr Carpenters pride in her work, and her expectations from her patients are as high as the bar is set. Great PA with Katlin, and all of the staff who assist her. I have made several recommendations already. Thank you Dr Carpenter. Roger and Connie Fleckal

I trusted Dr. Carpenter with my life and my livelihood and would not hesitate for a second to do it again. The care and treatment I received from both her and her P.A. Katie was as professional as it was personable. She is a no nonsense doctor that doesn't sugar coat things and tells you exactly what to expect while still maintaining a great deal of empathy for her patients that is often lacking in surgeons of her caliber. Thanks for the second chance.

Dr. Carpenter is the best. She operated on my shoulder for a rotator cuff tear and did a brilliant job of repairing my injury. Is kind and caring but very honest and frank about what challenges to expect, with such a major procedure. Would not hesitate to highly recommend her to anyone, as an outstanding orthopedic surgeon.
