I must have seen a different Dr. Carter than the other reviewers. The Dr. Carter I saw talked so fast about my condition, the information he had in my chart and how he would treat my condition in the future that I could barely follow what he was saying! He never asked me if I had any questions so I had to blurt them out when he paused long enough to take a breath. The so-called exam he gave me ( where he checked the pressure in my eyes among other things) lasted approximately 2 minutes.

Dr Carter is skilled, compassionate and although my first experience with him was for cataract surgery, he made me feel completely comfortable. I couldn’t ask for a better outcome. No question is trivial and I’m switching to him for all my eyecare.

Dr. Carter was thorough and friendly, almost a clone of Dr. Staffaroni (and I liked him very much). Dr. Carter was knowledgeable and pretty thorough.

Even though I was quite late for my appointment Dr. Carter was very accommodating and fit me into his schedule. I appreciate it very much. The exam went well. Dr. Carter was very informative in explaining the exam, the results and what they meant.

My visit began with the nurse, Janet, who was cordial and efficient. Dr. Carter was pleasant and reviewed my history with me. He explained what he was doing and why he had to do certain tests. I asked him about one of my concerns and he was supportive, giving me a script for medication if I needed it in the next year. He said that if my symptoms were worse than in the past, he would like to see me in the office. He told me that I had two cataracts and if they begin to bother me, I should let him know. Otherwise, he would see me in a year. I think that he is a great addition to the practice!

Dr. Carter is a very knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. Was very impressed. Did a great job on my cataract surgery and my vision is like it was when I was 20. Thank-you Dr. Carter. Looking forward to my second eye surgery.

My visit with Dr. Carter was excellent. He took time to answer all my questions. He has a calm demeanor. He was unhurried. I look forward to seeing him again. I wish that the eye center would provide a summary of my visits.
