from John in NC February 20, 2014 for Lawrence S. Carter Jr., MD

I never feel rushed during an office visit with Dr. Carter; he gives me as much time as I need. That is enormously important to me, because I have confidence that any issues get the attention they deserve. I like the fact that he stays on top of new developments in medicine, and I always learn something when we are together. I genuinely enjoy the time that I spend with him.
