How was your experience with the doctor?The whole experience was outstanding. Dr Carter is deeply knowledgable, efficient and approachable, and treated me with extreme professionalism, clearly explaining each step and looking for solutions. She took the time needed to look into every possibility and I felt very much part of the process. She referred me to an on-site physical therapist who was able to see me immediately, and was AMAZING! Dr. Carter's receptionist also provided truly exceptional service, checking in by phone before the appointment and going above and beyond to help me change the address registered with my insurer and giving me a clean copy of my insurance card. The whole process was the most professional, efficient and confidence-inspiring I have ever experienced in the US.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Carter's practice is very well run and her front desk staff are courteous and efficient. There isn't much wait time at all and Dr. Carter is very thorough and knowledgable. She doesn't rush and explains things in detail. I was very impressed by her and the practice, and I went there for a few months for treating an injury.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Carter and Afriqiyah (as well as the entire support staff) have been amazing in their treatment of me. I feel like I am in very capable hands with her and her group. I love that Dr Carter is interested in many different kinds of therapy, from meditation, to trigger point injections, to supplements. I love that she really listens to me and my symptoms, and is willing to try different therapies. And I most especially love how she convinced me to keep on trying, even through the depression I'd developed from so many years of misdiagnosis dead-ends, increasingly poor health, and decreased mobility. She's given me more back than I can say. Highly recommended, if you're looking for a doctor who will really work with you to help you get better.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Carter is very professional and caring. She spent a whole hour with me discussing the pain from my herniated disk as well as reviewing all aspects of an MRI when other doctors wouldn't take the time. She gave me a full critique of my bad habits and how to break them before things get worse. After seeing Dr Carter, I am more hopeful that my pain will go away. Her staff is also incredibly helpful and friendly. I had booked my appointment over the weekend for 9:30am and received a confirmation phone call that morning at 7:30 along with paperwork to fill out before arriving to expedite the wait time. I was able to see the doctor 15 minutes before I was scheduled, even! They even took care of calling my health insurance provider before I arrived to make sure everything was all set. I couldn't recommend this team more!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Carter is great! Very down to earth, and personable, she took the time to go over every detail of my injury, and put together the full picture of my condition and how to handle it. She immediately set me up with x-rays, as well as a physical therapist (who shares the office with her, and consults with her regularly - such a great setup!), and gave me other general advice on some things to do/change in the meantime. It was such a pleasant difference from many doctor's offices where you feel rushed in and out - I left feeling very attended to, and cared for!

How was your experience with the doctor?Let me start by saying that I really liked Dr. Carter personally. My negative review is regarding some of her office personnel and the office "procedures" from which they refuse to deviate for any reason. I injured my knee and could not get in to see my regular sports medicine doctor, so booked an appointment with Dr. Carter because her office is close to mine. The appointment was on 2/11, and everything went smoothly. I scheduled an MRI and an X-Ray with the facility she recommended for 2/17. On 2/16, I noticed that the insurance claim for my 2/11 appointment had not yet been processed. Because of my insurance deductible, I wanted the claim processed prior to my 2/17 MRI. I called the office and they said that because of "procedure" they could not process the claim until they got the go ahead from the doctor, which would not be until 2/17. In the afternoon of 2/17 (today) I got a call back, during which I was told that they would process the claim only if I handed over the entire deductible amount up front (another "procedure"). I asked my insurance company about the upfront deductible requirement, and they advised that although it is technically legal for doctors to do this, they (the insurance company) kindly ask doctors to submit claims FIRST, then bill. Furthermore, because Dr. Carter's office processed the claim so extraordinarily late, I may have to dole out double deductibles because the MRI center will not see that it has already been met. This means I will be worrying about tracking down two separate refund amounts over the next 15 days it takes the insurance company to process the claims. Overall, completely unacceptable level of service. It's a shame because Dr. Carter seems like a smart, nice, very knowledgeable doctor, but the office is a total joke.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Carter is professional, friendly, and gives pragmatic advice. Dr Carter's office staff are equally friendly and willing to help. The office has called me on several occasions after hours in order to give me immediate information and to confirm appointments. Dr Carter does not keep you waiting. She once called me during the evening of a work night to inform me of my MRI results. Instead of waiting to tell me the following morning, Dr Carter spoke to me as soon as she could. You can tell that Dr Carter and her staff treat patients like customers. Thumbs up all around.
