Dr. Carrr is always pleasant, explains her comments and always sees the whole picture when talking to me. Dr. Carr follows through when she is going to call my other doctors and answers questions directly when I ask. I am thankful I have had her as my oncologist. I always feel she is there for me.

Dr Carr is an exceptional physician! She explained everything in detail that was easily understood! She is the most caring and compassionate Dr I have ever known! She took great care of [a relative a few years ago]. We were blessed to have known her than and wouldn't have seen anyone else when I was diagnosed.

*Dr. Carr is a wonderful doctor. She explains everything in an understandable manner and has even written notes that I could take home.

You guys have that No. 1 rating for a very good reason. You earn it every day. I hear the same from fellow patients. But for [another provider] and Dr. Laurie Carr, I would not be alive today, much less living and working in [my home town] and getting in bike rides of 10-15 miles almost daily, year around. (I can ride on snow in winter with studded mountain bike tires to go over packed snow and icy roads.)
