I was most impressed with Dr Carriere's professionalism. I was able to see him without a terribly long wait, both for an appointment and the day of the appointment. His staff was cordial and very well organized. After we met, I was able to schedule the recommended procedure and they handled all the details. Everything went as expected and treatment is going well.

I found Dr. Carriere very informative and explained every step of the process I am scheduled to have. He asked questions to become more familiar with my background and I felt comfortable discussing my history with him. I would recommend Dr. Carriere to anyone that needs his services.

I first saw Dr Carriere in Summer of 2016 and he was awesome in my diagnosis and care. He took very good care of me and listened to my questions. And I am back again, 2018 and he is just as great. He listens and wants to help you in any way to get to the GI issues that you are having and correct them. I do and still will recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr Carriere provided me with excellent care the one time I saw him. I was referred to him for severe abdominal pain and he ordered a CT Scan which I got and his office called me to schedule a follow-up. When I arrived for the follow-up, his office staff told me they no longer accept my insurance and basically 'tough luck'. They did not offer me the chance to pay for the visit personally so I could find out if I have a serious medical issue. They didn't alert me ahead of time or offer any alt

Great doctor. Very efficient. I went for a colonoscopy screening. Only two short visits needed. One day was a preop, the second day was the procedure. He got in and out in no time... He gave me the results immediately after I woke up. I’ll plan to see him for my next colonoscopy.

I felt comforted after seeing him. He assured me he could help and I believed him. As we were talking about my symptoms, he mentioned some I left off my list so he knew exactly what I was experiencing. That was such a comfort....he knew....and understood. Apparently he has had a lot of experience with my problem, and that's what I need...someone who knows what to do to help me.
