22/10/13 5 5 5 5 This physician and her staff take the terror out of breast cancer. Dr. Carpenter is rare because she is a superbly skilled surgeon but still has a gentle and comforting bedside manner. The first thing she did when she walked into the exam room during my first appointment was give me a hug. And that was even before I started crying. I would be surprised if there was a better breast surgeon in the region. She provided me with personal attention, always provided honest, direct, and complete recommendations, called me when I needed advice and to give me path results, and is just a gift to the profession and anyone facing down the beast that is breast cancer. Oh, and the important part. She successfully removed all of my cancer.  Respond

23/05/11 5 5 5 5 She is very kind and thorough. She explained everything and layed out a plan for treatment which is very helpful after got home and recovered from the shock of the breast cancer news, one can start to proceed with what's lying ahead. She also refered me to the best medical oncologist, Dr. Tetef.

21/12/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Carpenter is wonderful!! I highly recommend her to anyone. She performed an excisional biopsy surgery on me and then later a double mast. At 27, it's a scary thing finding out you've got breast cancer, but when your doctor is comforting, knowledgeable and VERY good at what she does, the process goes a little bit smoother.

22/06/09 2 5 5 5 Dr. Carpenter is one of the nicest most caring Doctors I've come across. Very good bedside manner. The only negative was her staff seems a little cluleless. Made an appt for 3 mos out and when i called to confirm they said she wasn't in the office that day. Also had some scheduling issues which delayed my surgery a bit.
