I went to see Dr. Carr due to a recent diagnosis of DCIS stage 0 breast cancer. I had been nervous and upset since finding out about this diagnosis, but Dr. Carr put me at ease and made me feel so much better about my situation. I feel very confident about my upcoming surgery and so glad I was referred to him.
