I was very impressed with Dr. Carter and her interest in my health. Dr. Carter was friendly and informative; and possesses a very comforting bedside manner, which put me at ease. I look forward to having her as my primary care physician.
This was my first visit with Dr Carter and I was very impressed
I am so grateful to Dr. Carter and her staff!
Well done with everything I needed
Very good visit. Yearly Physical.
I was disappointed, It took over a week to get an appointment. Dr. Carter listened to my complaint but I felt she was not fully engaged with my concerns. Medications were prescribed and I was directed to go to the ER if I had any bad reactions to the meds. Why have a PCP if I can't get in and be taken care of?
Everything was fine
Very helpful and caring
Always professional
Always been very good
This was my first visit with Dr Carter and find her easy to talk. I found her very professional and will probably return to see her in the coming months.
All went very well Thank you
Dr. Carter was very personable and professional in her care for me.
The doctor was ok, she saw I was masked and ask if I would like her to ware one. (My wife is a transplant patient taking immune suppression meds.) We are very careful that Covid is avoided.This was my first visit, a new patient. We relocated from Illinois a couple of months ago. This was a regular check up.
Very happy with my Doctor
Dr. Carter put me at ease. She was very thorough.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Carter but it was a good first visit.
Good bed side manner
Dr.Carter is always extremely professional and courteous. I have been a patient for years and will keep her as my primary docter .
Had the same doctor for 30 years. Recently moved to Brunswick, Ga. Dr Carter was highly recommended by family and friends. I was not disappointed.
Very likable and friendly. Good sense of humor and bedside manor
This was our first visit. We relocated last year and Dr. Carter was recommended to us by several family members.
I love Dr Carter she listens.
Rushed, unfriendly , borderline condescending .
Took to long to see me I waited forty five minutes plus when I went to the back room the doctor came in briefly and said I will be back it's like she had other patients who was waiting on her also. I did not like that she was not focused on me.
Dr. Carter listens, respects, offers sound knowledge and exceeds expert professionalism. I am very happy to have found a local Dr of her caliber.
Dr. Carter is compassionate and never rushes my visit. She listens to my questions and offers solutions. She even goes out and prints up information for me to read and better understand
Very quick, efficient visit.
Dr. Carter and her staff are very professional and courteous.
Really liked this doctor and the staff. We liked them so much, my daughter made appointment with Dr. Carter .
I was very impressed with Dr. Carter s knowledge pertaining to my health conditions.
I've been going to Dr Carter for years and she does a great job
Dr was going to recommend a dermatologist for my are, I have yet to hear back from her.
While Dr. Carter was pleasant enough, I did not feel like she addressed one of my concerns by discussing possible causes, remedies; instead the response I received was more along the lines of "well, that's what happens as a woman ages".
Very helpful
We have always been very happy with Dr. Carter.
Dr. Carter was very professional, knowledgeable and pleasant personality. She made me comfortable to ask questions or share any concerns with her.

Nice visit. The doctor spent a lot of time with me and was very interested in my welfare.
I always expect to wait at least 30 or 45 minutes beyond my appointment time to be seen. She is always running late.
The atmosphere was great! Cordially! Enjoyable.
Excellent physician. Very courteous, knowledge, and professional. Always a pleasant experience with Dr. Carter and her staff.
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.

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

I have been a patient of *Dr. Carter's for many years. This recent visit was initiated by me. Following a series of tests that were run following a hip replacement. I completely trust *Dr. Carter and wanted a straightforward conversation and explanation of the tests. She was great!!
Dr. Carter is very caring and compassionate with exceptional knowledge in her field of expertise. I am only regretful I didn't stay seeing her sooner

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.
