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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Carver for 13+ years. He has always been very attentive and listens to your concerns as a patient.

from Cecil December 15, 2011 for David R. Carver, MD

Five years ago, at age 73, I suffered from back pain caused by deterioration and loss of two disks in my lower back (L3 and L4). Dr. Carver prescribed exercise and referred me to a physical therapist who custome-designed a series of stretching and flexing exercises. The routine takes 40 minutes every other day. I have followed the routine very strictly and continuously ever since then, and so… See more
