This doctor is too old to be practicing. He dismissed my sumptoms saying yep, yep, not wanting to listen. He said he had no answers and that I might have to accept things as they are!

He doesn't know what's wrong with me but he is trying his hardest to give me a diagnosis. I was happy with my visit. It's not an easy illness to diagnose nobody has been able to so far.

Dr. Carter seems great Very pleasant and relaxed. For the most part, he has a very nice team. They all seem to like him and his assistant sang his praises, which seemed genuine. The scheduling coordinator/ practice supervisor was a little dry and seemed like she had better things to do than help me. I just got the feeling she had made up her mind about not liking me immediately, though I hadn't said a word to her until we sat down to schedule. She was dismissive of my questions and didn't even make eye contact. I've been a practice manager and scheduling coordinator for nearly 20 yrs, if I treated patients with as little regard and courtesy as she did I would not expect them to return. I don't need to be coddled, but being pleasant is nothing more than a professional courtesy. Other than that complaint, it's a nice office. I'm going to keep my appointments for my surgery despite her, because every other person I encountered was kind and professional and made me feel like I was in good hands.

His bedside manner was quite horrible. He was very agrressive with the scopes. Hurt my ear when he was looking in it. Even if he did cure my illness I am not sure I would go back unless last resort.

This was my first visit to Dr. Carter and I was very satisfied. The front desk staff was very nice and polite. The three medical assistants in the back waiting room were also very nice and very comforting. Dr. Carter was very personable and asked several probing questions to get a history of my chronic cough. He examined me and after the diagnosis recommended very quickly the medications I needed to get well. After just one day I'm starting to feel a lot better. l have a follow up appointment with him in a couple of weeks to review my progress. When I got home I told my wife about my experience and she will be making an appointment for herself for a condition she has been dealing with for years. Thank you Dr. Carter and your staff for providing such wonderful service. Leroy W

Dr. Carter was the first ENT who actually agreed with me when it came to taking out my tonsils. I had an abscessed throat, and huge infected tonsils as well as turbinates. He took one look, grabbed my hand and said let's go. He checked on me constantly and here I am 4 weeks later being able to breathe and swallow without pain. I love this man without a doubt because he changed my life by just listening and agreeing that they were time to go! Thanks Dr. Carter!
