Dr. Carter and her staff were wonderful during my visit. They were attentive and didn't rush through anything. They clearly take pride in what they do. I admire Dr. Carter for her straightforward approach about how I need to take better care of my eyes, but it came out of genuine concern instead of something she's supposed to say. Her staff are very knowledgeable and were excellent about making sure I got the most out of what my insurance covers. This is definitely my new location for eye care.
