I have been with Dr. John Z. Carter since I moved from Tempe to Tucson 1981. He has treated me for many health problems and surgeries. He has always sent me to other good doctors for my health problems. I am now 78 years of age and I feel very confidant that he will over see my health problems if they arise.
