Dr. Carter is a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia. He completed his residency at Palmetto Health Richland in Columbia, and fellowship at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC. He practices in a residency-teaching program and cares for mostly underserved patients. He has interests in diabetes, cardiovascular health, and headache disorders. He believes the most important trend in cardiovascular disease right now is population-based primary prevention. This is relevant to family medicine as we confront the challenge of remaining the core facet of our patients’ health care. Dr. Carter also believes that preventive cardiology is something we should focus on in patient care.
