Dr. Carter is absolutely AMAZING!
Dr. Carter remembers every detail about her patients. We are so thankful that our grandchildren have her as their doctor. She is kind, extremely knowledgeable, observant and approachable. It is evident that she cares and I wish there were more doctors like her.

My daughters (13 and 9) have been seeing Dr. Carter for 2.5 years. My son has been seeing her since he was born in January. Dr. Carter is a wonderful doctor. She cares so much about her patients, and it shows! She listens, asks questions, and always makes sure to answer any questions that the parent has before she leaves the room (even when the waiting room is full!) Dr. Carter realized that my oldest daughter had severe scoliosis before we did and she ended up having surgery a year and a half ago. If it weren’t for Dr. Carter’s discoveries, my daughters back problems could have ended up so much worse!! I highly recommend her!! We moved recently, about 35 minutes away, and I refuse to change pediatricians!

We love Dr. Carter, but we’re not a fan of her staff! Front desk is rude and unorganized! Over all super unprofessional. Not prompt on returning calls! Dr. Carter is the only reason we continue using them and only for checkups!
