Oxnard, CA |
I'm a new patient and i couldn't ask for a better doctor. I've been seeing obgyn's for years and he helped me right away and fix the problem
Camarillo, CA |
First, Dr. Carter is an exceptional doctor. I had bad experiences with paps in the past with pain and discomfort but I only felt the pressure from the clamps with Dr. Carter. He delivered my first child and I'm now seeing him with my second pregnancy and I wouldn't have gone to anyone else. I don't need a doctor who will beat around the bush. Dr. Carter tells it to you straight and is incredibly kind. And I love his staff!
Ventura, CA |
Dr. Carter was one of the meanest doctors I've ever seen in my life, both verbally and physically. Pelvic exam was painful. He didn't listen to a word I was saying and asked the same questions over and over. The office is old, dingy and the carpet filthy. I will never go back there. I would NOT RECOMMEND Dr. Carter.
