Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Carter enjoys cooking, as well as playing the guitar, basketball and golf. 
​​I try to have an open, friendly relationship with my patients so that they can feel comfortable asking and telling me anything. I enjoy seeing patients over long periods of time, because I feel a long-term doctor-patient relationship is the best way to give and receive medical care. I also like to laugh and have fun with my patients; I think it often does more good than medications.
