My wife and I have had this care provider for many years (probably 30 or more). Though we continue to see this provider, both my wife and myself have had some significant problematic events in past years. This is why, despite my overall good score, I am giving a Poor rating for the question regarding recommending this care provider to others.

Dr. Carper is amazing and I'm lucky to have him as my OB!
