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.

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 myvisit 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.

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 putinto 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.

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 optionto 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 .

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 aweek 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.

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 biopsythat was several layers deep and wide. Complete lack of judgement, would not recommend to anyone.

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 andknowledgeable staff, to Dr. Carter herself, it was a great and quick visit!
