4.9 out of 5 (79 Ratings, 14 Comments)

Why do some of our providers not have a star rating? This can be for several reasons, including:

  1. The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display.
  2. The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.

i wanted guidance help for getting tested for [condition]. she talked to me in ways that had a cut off tone to where i couldnt ask more questions or anything. i left still silent about what is bothering me

Dr Carpenter appears to be the best doctor I have had in my last [...] years. She's smart, knowledgeable, efficient, patient, sincerely interested in proactive, preventive health care; she remembers her patient's health history, gives reasons for recommendations/advice, explains relationships and consequences of health behaviors and medications, provides invites, encourages patient's accountability, and respects patient's values. I especially appreciate her accessibility and desire to be available for follow-up; her personal commitment to an individual patient's care is rare. I have recommended her again and again to educated women who are seeking smart, personal care and who know quatlity health care. Dr Carpenter is exceptional.
