Mr. Carpenter, Paul Carpenter done very well with me. The only thing is, is she not have my information from my other heart doctor and MD Anderson to fully evaluate me. But he's a very conscientious doctor and a very good doctor. Thank you.

Enjoyed my visit with Dr. Carpenter very much. He is intelligent respectful, and he seems to care about you when you visit with him. He's got a great reputation for knowing a lot about Cardiology and he really put my mind at ease with some questions that I had and took plenty of time answering those questions. He is absolutely a top notch doctor, and I'm glad that I was referred to him. Thank you very much. Goodbye.
