Verified Patient Reviews
I made a last minute appointment last night for skin irritation via ZocDoc and thank goodness I did. Initially I wanted to see a female doc (since I am female) but none were available. His ratings and reviews were right on. I was able to get in first thing this morning and be seen promptly. Dr. Carter was very friendly, as was his assistant Theresa. I will definitely be back for any derm-related needs. Great office, very friendly staff!
Dr. Carter was absolutely amazing. After discussing my medical history with the medical assistant he came in assessed my skin and talked about my plan of treatment. I love the fact that he was straight to the point and gave me a few pointers about things I could use to make my skin less oily while wearing make up. He also went over the the importance of sunscreen (something I've never used). I would recommend this professional to anyone his smile was also pleasant sometimes talking about my skin is very embarrassing but he made me feel comfortable. The staff was also very kind and the lobby looks amazing.
Dr. Stephen Carter came across as knowledgable and polite and patiently answered all my questions.
I was pretty nervous about my appointment because I'm heavily tattooed and most doctors immediately judge me when they see me. Dr. Carter saw me right away, checked out my skin issue, made recommendations and gave me an idea of the cost involved. It turns out that what I thought was an ingrown hair was actually a common form of skin cancer, so I was very grateful that he made the decision to remove the bump on my first visit.
He is an amazing doctor . Very welcoming and is as determined as I am to find effective treatments that work best for me . I would highly recommend seeing him .
Dr. Carter and his staff were excellent. Highly recommend!
Dr Carter explained everything in a way that was very easy to understand.
Office was very clean and new. Staff was nice, helpful and patient. Dr. Carter has a calm and friendly prescence, informative with his diagnosis but knows how to tell patients without being over your head with medical jargon. I was very pleased with my experience from beginning to end.
Dr Stephen is a very patient practitioner and took the time to answer my questions and alleviated my concerns. Theresa is also friendly, professional and considerate. Glad I found a reliable dermatologistI in the city.
Very through and explained everything well.
Dr. Carter and all his staff are very friendly and professional. My visits with him have been very informative because he and his assistants take time to explains things fully. My appointments have all ended with opportunities to ask any questions. Waiting room is very comfortable and front desk staff is friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this provider.
Very informative Doctor, explained all options for treatment of diagnosis
Clean professional and friendly office. Informative visit.
I'm only starting the medication today, so I can't speak for this doctor's effectiveness in the long-term. However, this was my first time to a dermatologist and it was a positive experience. Doctor, assistant, and reception were friendly and prompt. Doctor didn't make me feel rushed, but also addressed concerns and questions effectively and honestly. I appreciated that he stated why he was treating me with what and the honest expectations I can have for improvement.
Before arriving to my first appointment with Dr.Carter, I've been misdiagnosed twice at a regular doctor clinic. Both doctors had said I had a fungal infection and noting they had given me has shown any progress. So I decided to make an appointment w/ Carter.No wait. No hassles. Friendly staff! The moment he stepped into to the room to see me he was all ears. Turns out I have Guttate Psoriasis and started a treatment plan with me immediately. Since then a lot of areas has cleared up but unfortunately the battle is still raging on. 2 weeks later, I come in for the follow up and we decided to go with a new plan. I'm pretty hopeful that it'll workout this time. I definitely recommend Mr. Carter.
