How likely are you to recommend Dr. Carter?

Dr. Carter completed my second hip replacement on August 10; 2020. It was another out of the park bases loaded home run. I was relieved of the pain I had been dealing with for over a year and was walking without a walker or cane within two weeks. Shelby is incredibly careful, accurate and knowledgeable. He always answers my questions, knows the research on the reliability of the prosthesis and has years of experience. He has a wonderful team as well from his PA to his surgery coordinator. He gave me my life back and I am back to gardening, dog agility and all of the activities I love. ,
