from Angela in LA March 18, 2018 for David R. Carver, MD

Dr. Carver has been my physician for about 22 years. I started seeing him when I was only 18 years old. I happened upon him as pure luck as my parents and I were searching for a primary care doctor that I could see as an adult. He then worked at the Baton Rouge Family Medical Center only downstairs from his current office location. Dr. Carver's bedside manner was of utmost importance to… See more

from Eelyn in LA March 16, 2018 for David R. Carver, MD

My experience with Dr. Carver as my primary care physician has been very positive. He is easy to talk to.

Dr. Carver listens to me like no other doctor has before. He listens intently, with caring and concern. He not only hears the words, but also reads the expressions and emotions.
His staff is wonderful. They are efficient while still managing to be kind and pleasant.
I love feeling like I matter.

from Dianne M in LA March 6, 2018 for David R. Carver, MD

My doctor, Dr. Carver has played an important positive difference in my health and well being. To show just how much he cares for his patients, I contacted him by e-mail last year on some issues I were experiencing that had me worried with concern. Lo and behold I heard back from Dr. Carver and he informed me that he and his family were on vacation, to me that meant a lot that he stepped… See more
