Ladies in waiting roomPreparing For Your Appointment

Prepare for your appointment by gathering any information or documentation you feel would be of value to Dr. Carter. This can include lab or blood work, lists of vitamins, supplements, or medications, MRI or x-ray imagery, or any other paperwork that you feel is important. Wear comfortable, loose clothing that you are prepared to potentially change out of. Feel free to bring a friend or family member to listen, notate, or help you feel at ease.

When you arrive at the Ideal Health Centers office, you will be warmly greeted and provided with a tour and any necessary paperwork. Feel free to contact us for further questions regarding visit preparation!


Dr. Carter relies on a two-visit new patient process, in order to best provide you with the information and care plan you need. The first visit is essentially considered an “information gathering” appointment wherein we deep dive into your individual issues and health history.

At this appointment, Dr. Carter is determined to decipher and understand exactly what your issues are and figure out which of the many tools in his arsenal can help you address them. Dr. Carter will listen and truly try to understand exactly what is going on in your body and how that contrasts with your ultimate goals.

After your first visit, Dr. Carter will review all of the provided information and organize it into a personalized overview and care plan.

At your second visit, Dr. Carter will present you with your personalized overview and let you know whether or not he feels that he can help you and how he plans to do so. This visit explains what is going on inside that is making you feel this way and which appropriate programs are right for you. If you mutually agree on a plan of attack, therapy and adjustment can begin right away.

Finances are always discussed before care and after recommendations. Our assistants are happy to walk you through the benefits provided by your insurance company or outline the financial plans available to you.
