Patient Reviews

Dr. Carreira met with my daughter for some of her irritable bowel and stomach problems. I found him to be patient, kind, thorough and so attentive. He took his time with us, and was never rushed. In this day and age when doctors have less time than ever, he took his time and answered every question we had and then some. He is a gem and I highly recommend him!

I meet Dr Carreria on April 12,2016, I enjoy his presence. He was very personal and attentive to my questions and concerns. As a new patience and a breast cancer survivor I look for physicians that are personable and attentive to my questions and concerns as well as doing what is best for my health and well being. I look forward to knowing I am going to be properly taken care of.
