Visit was very relaxed and informative.
I had heard very good things about Dr. Carter and it is obvious that she knows her stuff. She was able to answer my questions without hesitation. This was my initial, set up/establish appointment and I think I expected more conversational time together to get to know each other - but maybe that's a misconception on my part. I am happy to have her and trust her based on our interaction.
They were nice and professional.
I'm new to Dr. Carter's practice. I felt very comfortable with her, and she promptly took care of my medical/health needs.
I have been seeing Dr. Carter for years. She has been a good doctor for me and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
Dr. Carter is the best Dr. Ever. I wld never consider using another.

Glad to have Dr Carter quick response to the x-ray result. Also quick to make a diagnosis with addition of doing lab work to verify what's wrong with my chronic diarreah condition
Very professional, courteous and caring.
I think she was very knowledgeable in her diagnosis
Horrendous. Have found another medical practice.
Straight to the point, when it comes to your health. Looks out for her patience best interests
She was really nice but I just didn't feel like she wanted to talk to me. She started to leave the room without asking me if I had any other concerns. I actually had a list but never got to it because I didn't feel she cared. This is not good as I suffer from depression. I am new to the area and was looking for a new provider. I needed someone I could talk to and trust. She was nice but I just didn't feel that connection I need In a provider.
All aspects were very professional
Dr. Carter was very helpful and paid attention to my needs

This was a new primary Dr for me
As a new patient transferring from another show office I was very impressed that Dr Carter had studied my records before meeting with me.

Just happy with the care she provides.

Dr Carter and her whole team are absolutely wonderful.
Dr.Carter has been the Best Ever Primary Care Physician I have had. I was hurt on the job and she has been there always to help me due to memory issues and depression, along with other permanent injuries. She has referred me to the Best Specialists and is up to date with all Healthcare Specialists. She is an Amazing Physician and we have Referred quite a few of our friends to her. She is respectful, kind, considerate and professional with much caring for her patients. I feel well informed with her and trust her. She is very explanatory and also prints off material for myself and my wife to read as well. I believe SGHS should be so grateful to have a physician like her as part of your hospital organization. I am grateful for having her as my doctor.
Dr knew exactly what was wrong. Gave Rx
Dr. Carter is Excellent and a Great Caring Doctor! We need more Dr's like her.
Dr. Carter listens well, concise & explains things well. A plus that blood work can be done in her office & you don't have to go to another place & go through the wait.
Dr. Carter is a wonderful dr. She always takes the time to listen and explain everything to me.
Despite a relatively long wait time, my visit with Dr. Carter was very brief. I was there for a physical exam, which I've put off for a few years. The entire exam consisted of her looking in my ears, listening to my heart, and quickly feeling my abdomen. The total amount of time I spent with Dr. Carter during my appointment was likely no more than 5 minutes. I brought up my concerns about my mental health and explained that I am trying to determine if a physical condition is a contributing factor, but we never had a conversation about this subject- I was just handed a generic paper about anxiety disorder at the end of my appointment. While Dr. Carter did order the bloodwork I requested, I do not feel as though I received a complete physical exam. I expected the doctor to feel my lymph nodes and check my eyes, nose, throat, etc. I also would've appreciated a discussion about the concerns I brought up regarding my mental health. I believe Dr. Carter is a competent physician, but I was left disappointed by the amount of time she spent with me during my appointment. It's important for patients to feel like their doctors care, and I didn't leave the office with that impression.
It was quick - I like that because you don't have to wait forever to see the doctor. She is very professional and gets right to the issue.
Dr. Carter and her Team have always polite and respectful to me and take time to explain things thoroughly so I understand.
This was my first visit to Dr. Carter's office as I am losing my previous primary care doctor. Dr Carter's staff was extremely professional and caring. Dr Carter had reviewed my medical records and asked pertinent questions about my health. She made sure that I had the medicines I needed. I am impressed with her level of care.
I have been with Dr Carter for about 14 years she always listen and I feel like she cares.
Thank you for such great care you show to me and your patients
Dr. Carter is always attentive, knowleadgeble, understanding and helpful with her advise.
