  Overall Patient Rating - March 2021
I have been a patient of Dr. Carters for a long time, and I have seen and evaluated many doctors through the years. it is my opinion that Dr. Carter is hands down, the best doctor I have ever had the privilege to be associated with. in addition to his medical knowledge and professional manner,it is very obvious that he really cares for his patients sincerely. If he were ever to leave his current practice, I would follow him wherever he want. He is the best !!!

Great dr.'s visit!

Dr. Carter is by far the best general care provide I've ever had. If he ever decided to leave EFM, I would follow him for sure. He's very quick and precise, but he's still very good at helping with questions, discussing anything related to my health, and is especially good at providing new information which we can discuss together.

This particular provider is very popular. Long lead times are the only reason I would hesitate to recommend him.

these questions reflect exactly Stephen Carter is my PCP and not someone else. there is NOBODY who know my body more than i do. he takes the time to make sure i understand all major factors involved in my care and treatments.
  Overall Patient Rating - October 2020
He did seem concerned and wanted to help but he didn't know much about my condition. I did appreciate his referral option though.

Finally found a doctor that didn't have his head in the computer for the whole visit!! Dr. Carter was great. He listened and cared!
