I give Dr. Carr an A+. I feel very fortunate that she is managing my condition, especially since [it] is rare and few physicians have treated this. She is a top notch physician who listened patiently to all of my concerns, answered all of my questions with very thorough explanations, and worked with me to come up with a treatment plan. She is very concerned about her patients and I have complete trust and confidence in her recommendations and approach. I would highly recommend her without hesitation.
