from Catherine in LA October 7, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

Dr. Carver was my doctor before MDVIP. I'm a single parent teacher, so money is tight. However, this is the best money I spend for peace of mind. It gives me instant access when I need it the most. For instance, my son slipped and pierced his hand with a shard from a plate. I called Dr. Carver on his cell afterhours. He sent us to the emergency room, and they knew who we were… See more

from Larry in LA March 1, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

Dr. Carver is the best, he cares, he is smart and he is compassionate. The standard Dr. Carver has set as my physician has made it diffucult for me to be satisfied when I have to see another doctor for any reason. I look for the type service I get from Dr. Carver when I have to see a specalist of some sort, I have yet to find that level of satisfaction.

from Claudia in LA February 22, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

My story began about noon in early Nov. 2013 when I began to experience strange sensations on my left side. It progressed to to the point where I could not stand up and the pain came in waves that brought me to my knees and literally became unbearable. I made a call to Dr. Carver and his nurse connected me to him immediately. I described my symptoms while having extreme pain and he… See more

Dr. Carver not only treats my illnesses, but he also educates me and keeps me on the straight and narrow regarding preventive health. He takes the time to answer all my questions, no matter how long-winded. His staff is welcoming and his office is always a pleasure to visit. With his help I look forward to staying on the water and fishing for years to come.

I truly appreciate Dr. Carver and the care I receive as a result of our doctor/patient relationship. I am extremely comfortable sharing my concerns with Dr. Carver and am confident that he has my best interest at heart.

from Jean in LA February 9, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

Dr. Carver has been my physician for close to 25 years. Since he became an MDVIP I have had more personal time with him and have gotten to know him better as he gets to know me better. I have always held Dr. Carver in high esteem, but now I am even more grateful that he is my doctor. He emails me, prays for me, and spends more time explaining my health issues and ways to over come them. I… See more

from Lea in LA February 7, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

Dr Carver is the most kind, caring physician I've ever seen. I am privileged to be a part of his practice. His tireless efforts & advice have helped me to improve my life. I take less medication and live more actively and fully. He always listens to my concerns and addresses them fully. He was always this way, even before becoming an MDVIP physician. But with the MDVIP service he… See more
