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!

Dr. Virginia Carter is excellent! I have been with her since 2014, and all three of my children are under her care. She is always pleasant, very informative, and okay with any concerns I may have concerning my children. She is very good with kids, she has never once been aggressive or aggravated with my children questions, statements or activeness during visits. When we see her the appointments never seem rushed or unimportant. I certainly recommended Dr Carter to anyone who is looking for a pediatrician who is approachable, polite, educated and involved with their clients.
