"I was told that I had a 95% chance that my tumors were nothing to be worried about. After surgery, was told that it looks like it is nothing. Turned out to be cancer."

"Acted like she had better places to be. Seemed to be annoyed at the fact she had to be there."

I have no positive comments about this person.

Negative Comments

Before my surgery I asked Dr. Carter if she was going to remove both of my tumors completely. She responded in a sarcistic tone "well yeah, that's what we do" as she gave her nurse a disturbing look. She failed to completely remove both of my tumors. She cut into both of my tumors, causing the cancer to spread throughout my breast. I had an additional surgery from another Dr. who removed the remainder of both tumors. I was told because of what she did I now have to have radiation in addition to my chemo to eliminate the cancer she spread in my breast. After the surgery she performed, she informed me that the tumors looked like they were of no concern. I had nothing to worry about. When she told me I had cancer she looked at me as though I would die right there on the spot, that my life was over.

General Comments

Unprofessional, non-caring, non-empathetic, not a good surgeon, bad bed-side manner. Acted like a gossipy school girl. Can't cut a straight line. My lines were jagged. She puts peoples lives at an unnecessary risk. Now I have to have radiation because of her actions. Don't let this happen to you! Find a different Dr.

DOESN'T EXPLAIN, DOESN'T ANSWER QUESTIONS, REFUSES TO HELP WITH ANY TYPE OF PAIN (EVEN 2 DAYS AFTER SURGERY), NURSE IS RUDE AND WILL TREAT YOU LIKE SHE IS DEALING WITH A CHILD, MAJOR NARCISSISTIC ATTITUDE PROBLEM!, ETC., ETC., ETC., AND IT GOES ON AND ON AND ON! I DON'T WANT TO SEEM RUDE BUT I FEEL THAT THERE SHOULD BE REVIEWS ON THIS DOCTOR SINCE I COULDN'T REALLY FIND ANYTHING BEFORE I WENT TO HER. I REALLY HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE ELSE, AND GOOD LUCK TO YOU.

General Comments

I KNOW NOTHING OF THE OTHER DOCTORS IN HER OFFICE, BUT PLEASE BE ADVISED TO AVOID THIS DOCTOR SPECIFICALLY. IF YOU DO I'M AFRAID YOU WILL BE SWITCHING BY 2ND VISIT AND NO ONE NEEDS THAT WHILE GOING THROUGH MEDICAL COMPLICATIONS!

Horrible

Negative Comments

In a life or death surgical matter, find another surgeon immediately. Horrible surgeon, my mother had a "simple" blockage in her intestines, needless to say 4 surgerys later she was very close to death. Now she must wear a illeostomy bag for the rest of her life.
