    The staff was courteous and efficient. The doctors were caring and listened to my concerns which made me feel good. Even put in a request for specially made insoles for my arches.
    Enjoyed having my toenails trimmed.
    Thank you to everyone.

    Thank you Dr. Carter for your kindness and professionalism. I felt like running with the orthotics (and ran in place) but I think running was not so good for me, better to stick with walking for now!

    Thank you so much, and I am so glad Kevin recommended you to me! I will recommend your office to my teacher friends, lawyer friends, and church folks!
    How do I get 2nd pair of orthotics for my heeled/dress shoes?

    So this was a follow up visit on three years. Dr Carter heard me and made some suggestions that made life a lot better. I think you should stress the importance of proper insoles as I went three years without realizing that arch support is 100% important. Now I wish I had gotten custom insoles at the time of my surgery when my insurance would have covered it. Also I just want to say that you should bring in a dietician of sorts to go over how to properly eat when you are injured and recovering. I gained a lot of weight pre op and post opp and took three years to find a diet that works with limited mobility and emphasizes your muscles rather than gaining fat. Just an idea though. Anyways thank you again. Hope I don’t have to visit soon ;)
