Verified Patient Reviews
The wait was too long. Dr. Carter is friendly and seemed knowledgeable. The staff were affable. I would not hesitate to refer someone to the practice, but I would prepare them for the wait time.
She was professional and thorough!
My visit with Dr. Carter was not nearly as pleasant as I hoped it would be. She didn't take a close look at my face at all and basically advised that I had acne (obviously that was the reason for my visit in the first place) without little solution other than prescribing topicals that I was already familiar with. My co-pay seemed unwarranted by the experience.
Extremely professional and polite staff. The doctor was very knowledgeable. Staff was as well.
Professional, Informative and friendly. Very much satisfied.
Nice office and staff, but in nutshell my visit was rushed and unproductive when I had several things I actually wished to discuss with her. Sad because you can tell this MD has potential but there was absolutely no effort put into my visit knowing that I was a new patient. I waited for more than an hour to be seen and once she finally came in to see me she was in and out the room in less than 5 minutes. I had to stop her each time before she was going to end the visit to attempt to discuss additional reasons for my visit and each time she hastily answered the question. I may attempt another visit in future.
Very personable staff. Everyone was very nice and professional. Dr. Carter was extremely nice and helpful.
Very professional and pleasant.
She was great
Dr, Carter has a great staff and she is very professional. I have already recommended her to family and friends. My husband has already made an appointment and my daughter plans to make hers soon.
Dr. Carter is very knowledgeable and shows deep concern for her patients.
Staff very professional and personable. Love Dr Carter's attention to detail. Williness to find me the best options for medication
Everything went great. She asked me a lot of questions before she told me what she thought. Ready to see some results by my next visit!
I waited an hour and fifteen minutes before being seen by the doctor. While she was apologetic, I wish I would have been notified prior to my appointment time via phone that she had an extenuating circumstance and given the option to reschedule. While she appeared to be very knowledgeable and had a great bed side manner, I'm not sure I can do the wait time again.
Not offered any real solutions for issues . Didn't seem interested and seemed annoyed . Only expensive solution options. Won't be going back, hurt by treatment after recommending to so many people. The care was lost .
Very professional and knowledgeable. Took the time to really listen and explain the diagnosis along with plan of action.
Dr. Carter was nothing short of fantastic! Terrific attitude and down to earth. Couldn't be happier with her services.
Dr. Carter and her staff are great! The wait time was a bit longer than usual. However, it was worth the wait. I will be back.
Dr. Carter was very professional and honest. Highly recommend
She is amazing ... This is my first visit, but she is very professional and listens to your concerns..
very knowledgeable and patient answers all questions
Dr. Carter and her staff are AWESOME!!!!!!!
Went in for adult acne- she seemed to poo poo the problem and I didn't feel she took me seriously. I ended up having some side effects from the oral medicine she prescribed- called back to ask for something else...waited a week for a call back, and when they did they wanted to put me on BC, which had they paid any attention to my chart, they would have seen I'm already on....I was told I'd get a call back....didn't....even called back twice b/c I don't want to pay another specialty co-pay for treatment elsewhere...and I'm still waiting...months later.
This was my first visit and I felt at ease and look forward to see her again whenever needed
She had such great bedside manner. She talked to me and explained my options not just pushed me to do what she thought. Her staff was so nice and attentive. Her front staff was welcoming and helpful.
She's amazing! Attended to my issues immediately and designed a plan of action
Dr. Carter was a pleasure to speak with. She is quick and thorough, and was able to immediately assess a plan to accommodate my needs.
Dr. Carter was very professional and understood my needs and listened to me as I spoke. She talked me through everything that she was suggesting.
The doctor completely failed to properly bandage my arm after a biopsy, which ended up bleeding through my dress shirt while I was at work. She put a standard bandaid that you would use for a paper cut on a biopsy that was several layers deep and wide. Complete lack of judgement, would not recommend to anyone.
Dr. Carter was very professional and pleasant. Great bedside manner!
Very professional. Answered the questions i had and explained them
Dr. Carter was great. Her and her assistant took the time to listen to my concern and answer all my questions. Dr. Carter explained everything step by step. Totally recommend her.
Dr. Carter knows what she's doing. She really wants her patients to be successful and happy in their treatments and results & puts you 1st. She has an amazing personality and you can tell she's passionate about her field. Within minutes she knew my diagnoses so it's very easy to say she's an expert and very credible.
Very informative, expressed concern. Would definitely recommend.
She is an excellent doctor. I will see her for all of my dermatology needs. Would definitely recommend her to a friend or family member. Staff was very professional and friendly.
Dr. Carter was very nice and professional. She took the time to evaluate my daughter and answer all questions we had.
Dr. Carter is very upbeat and attentive. I really like the doctor, but the front office staff is somewhat unfriendly and never provided an itemized receipt as I requested.
Had a very pleasant experience with her.
Very nice lady! Great attitude!
The doctor was not very thorough and her office is not completely setup. It felt as if I was visiting an unestablished office.
a pleasant one
She is very profisional .
Dr. Carter is Excellent! I've been to quite a few dermatologists before, but she is overwhelmingly the best. She and her staff are very thorough. From walking in the office (which is beautiful, by the way), interacting with her friendly and knowledgeable staff, to Dr. Carter herself, it was a great and quick visit!
My visit was great! Dr. Carter really made sure I understood everything, provided all options I had, and allowed me to ask as many questions needed. I will definitely be going back and would recommend her to others!
We were visiting for the first time and we were highly impressed.
I was in and out but not rushed. She seemed knowledgeable and friendly
What an amazing physician ! Couldn't be happier with my choice.
Very professional and thoroughly explained my situation.
Amazing doctor and staff. Were very helpful and understanding . Highly recommend
Initially I had received a call about 20 min before my appt to say that I couldn't be seen. I advised that I had driven all the way out there because ZocDoc showed that my appt was scheduled. I was asked to hold & then told to come on in, they would squeeze me in. Told I might have a considerable wait though. The wait wasn't as long as I anticipated. When I got in, I actually saw the doctor. In my past experience, I've scheduled to see the doctor that I'd heard about, only to see assistants. I was truly appreciative that Dr. Carter actually saw me. She's very personable & attentive. She seem to understand and genuinely want to help me have beautiful skin again.
Dr. Carter seemed very nice and knowledgeable.
Dr Carter is down to earth and saw issues that I did not mention highly recomend
Excellent bedside manner, efficient, and knowledgeable. Thought through possible treatments instead of going for the obvious one that may not work for me. Friendly staff and nice open office.
Overall satisfied. Didn't like the wait time and that I had to fill up the paperwork even though I answered all of the questions online through zoo doc.
It was awesome! Loved her bedside manner and thoroughness to address my issues. So glad to find a good dermatologist finally!
Long wait time, but otherwise the visit was fine.

I think she was very polite. She listen to my concerns and had a great bedside manner. I would definitely return to her office again.
Very enjoyable and informative
She is pleasant and listens to concerns.
I’ve found that some doctors would come in, check you over very briefly, write you a prescription and then send you on your way. Well, not Dr. Carter. I was utterly impressed with her professionalism. She is very detailed and knowledgeable about her work....which is something I can certainly appreciate. And not only that, she seems to be very warming and welcoming. I would most certainly recommend Dr. Dornechia Carter to my friends.
I thought the staff was very nice and friendly. Dr. Carter was fast but thorough which I love and had great bedside manner! I loved my experience.
Dr Carter and staff very professional and through!

Dr Carter is very pleasant and easy to talk with.. I felt a little rush when she was explaining my treatment plan. However; I feel confident in the treatment plan and she was very positive about my prognosis. She is considerate and offers samples to help you out. The staff was also very nice.
Professional office staff Dr. Carter, was personable, quick, precise, and really listened to my concerns.
She got right to the point in a timely manner

Highly satisfied!! Upon arriving through the door until I saw Dr. Carter my experience was EXCELLENT. Her staff was very personable and professional. WHAT I ENJOYED MOST IS THE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
Dr.Carter was very polite, and understood my baseline of a problem.
She prescribed the exact medication and dosae
Incredible! She took care of all my concerns without hesitation. I highly recommend Dr. Carter.
Dr. Carter was amazing!! Polite, sweet, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in my concerns. She answered ALL my questions (even though the nurse who came in prior has asked me to limit my questions to 3..CRAP!) Best of all, my skin problems are being resolved. I highly recommend her!! Only downside is the wait time was a bit too much but I guess that's the price to pay for someone that good.
I felt rushed and as if i was just a number.

I was very impressed with Dr. Carter. She listened to the concerns I had during my visit. Most of all I didn't feel rushed once I saw the doctor.
A great,competent and professional person.
Very nice visit wanted to know about me and my problems.
Dr. Carter was very professional and knowledgable! She didn't waste any uneccessary time or money on "creams or lotions" to make me feel better about my condition. She suggested we get a definite diagnosis through test confirmation, then treat the problem. I am a nurse and have been in the medical field for 12 years and more doctors need to do this on the first visit instead of giving out perscriptions that may or may not work. I highly recommend Dr. Carter for any dermatology needs.
She was very comphensive and friendly. I didn't even have to ask any questions because she was so thorough. All concerns were addressed.
she is young, bright and knowledgeable. my first impression was good.
Dr.Dornechia was AWWWEMAZING(awesome and amazing). I thoroughly enjoyed her getting straight to the reason for my visit(I suffer from dark spots and bad acne). She came with a game plan to get me clear skin by the summertime. The nurses(or med assistant) was very nice as well. However, there is the front desk lady, that was very dry, and rude. They did not want to acknowledge my Zoc Doc appointment, and that posed a SERIOUS PROBLEM. Fortunately, someone that had been there longer and knew better straightened the kinks out, and got me going along smoothly. I can't WAIT for my second visit in 2 months, that way I can see how much I've progressed. Also...from what she prescibed I haven't gotten a single pimple. YAY!!!!
Excellent dermatologist! I highly recommend her. Wait time was a little long, but other than that the visit went well.
Small waiting room, a little warm, but friendly staff and assistant. I would recommend her to anyone.
This was my sons first visit for eczema and she was so nice and professional..
No wait to see the doctor. She listened to all my concerns, and answered my questions.

Dr. Carter Is a very beautiful and elegant woman. I have seen many dermatologist throughout the years but she seems to be the most knowledgeable of all I have seen. She was very gentle with the very painful procedure in which I had to endure. I have had this procedure performed in the past and no one has been able to accomplish this pain free but she did! Thank you doctor Carter for taking such good care of me. Sincerely, Daniel Harris.

Dr. Carter was very patient and helpful. She took time and effort to help me understand my condition and what I needed to do to get better and also what to look our for that might be problematic. She did not mind repeating herself until I fully comprehended what she was saying. Such patience is rare, especially in a person as busy as is a doctor, but Dr. Carter did what she had to to ensure that I left the hospital best prepared for the future. Thank you so much,
Dr. Carter is warm, friendly, and professional. Her knowledge is evident. And she demonstrates genuine concern for making sure all of your issues are addressed. I highly recommend her.

She basically told me in so many words she couldn't do anything about my problem, along with all my other issues. So I feel like I wasted my co-pay.
For an annual skin exam it wasn't very thorough
Great doctor and great visit!

First visit with Dr. Carter, extremely impressed.
Dr Dornechia Carter was wonderful, definitely will see her again! Highly recommended! :)
Very impressed by the way she handled me. I felt loved and she took the time to address all my issues and examine my skin thoroughly. If you are looking for a dermatalogist who cares and knows what she is doing I recommend Dr Carter.
Dr. Carter was very nice and professional. She explained my diagnosis thoroughly and she was very attentive to all my questions.
Excellent. I brought my daughter to Dr. Carter after seeing a couple of dermatologists in the area. My daughter has been suffering from hairloss and we hadn't gotten any definate answers yet. Dr. Carter was very good with her and did a biopsy to prove the diagnosis. I'm very satisfied with her and recommend her to everyone, even young children. Definately a satisfying experience.
It was my son first visit and I was late I did call ahead to inform them I was behind schedule, they still seen my son and the wait was less then 30 min.the workers were pleasant and polite and the Dr. and her assistant were wonderful. My son thought Dr. Carter was nice. Keep up the good work.
She is the best doctor I have seem in 25 years. I have suffered with acne since my teenage years and for the first time I think the doctor has given me an effective treatment. I felt very confident in her care.
I really like her. She's patient, funny, kind and most of all thorough
Dr. Carter has a great, easy manner. She listened and was receptive to my questions and requests. My husband, who sees another clinician in the practice, said he wants to switch to Dr. Carter.
