Seeing a new doctor for a long term issue is never easy, Dr. Carter took the couple of minutes to talk and really listened and asked questions, by the time the appt. was over I felt like I has been seeing him for awhile about the issue. Other doctors can learn from his bedside manner to save time and treatment!!!!!
