Dr. David Carver is certainly the most efficient, most courteous, most effective and kind physician I have ever met/have/had. I am so grateful for the excellent healthcare that he has provided for me and my husband for the past 20 plus years. He is always willing and ready to address our medical needs whenever we call. We could not ask for anyone any better. He is lucky to have us as patients… See more

from Jean in LA October 8, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

Congratulations Dr. Carver! I am thrilled that you have been recognized as one of the Best Doctors, something I can attest to and have known for over 25 years. One of the things that I appreciate about Dr. Carver is that the last two years he has treated me without being compensated by my insurance company. Because he is a MDVIP, the insurance company refused to recognize him as my provider… See more

from Beverly R & Keith in LA October 8, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

CONGRATULATIONS, DAVID!! Keith and I know you are wonderful, but we're so glad that your peers acknowledge that as well. Thank you for your caring heart and excellent medical help these last 2 years. Blessings,

from Cherie in LA October 8, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

Our family loves the service and treatment we get from Dr. Carver and his staff. Dr. Carver has been our doctor for over 20 years and has always taken good care of us, however the changes since becoming a part of MDVIP have been remarkable. It is definitely worth the cost. Thank you for helping us live a healthier life.

from Larry in LA October 8, 2014 for David R. Carver, MD

Dr. Carver is the best doctor I have had the pleasure of seeing in my entire life, he is caring, attentive, polite, professional and just a wonderful human being and doctor. Dr. Carver listens well, processes everything he is told and comes up with suggestions and solutions that are always right on target. As long as Dr. Carver is working to provide health care, I will be his patient, I hope… See more

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.

When Dr. Carver became… See more

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.
