What To Expect

Dr. Carter offers an integrative approach to natural medicine, using the most appropriate combination of therapies for your well being. She rarely employs a single therapy, so her primary service offered is individualized, natural health care. This may include acupuncture, craniosacral therapy and other bodywork, lifestyle and nutritional counseling from an Eastern and Western perspective, botanical medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, supplements, compassion, unconditional positive regard, and laughter.

Dr. Carter spends approximately 90 minutes with her patients. The first visit usually entails a detailed health history, a focused physical exam, and an acupuncture treatment or other hands-on therapies. Over time, the interview portion of the visit becomes less and the treatment time becomes longer. At the end of every visit, Dr. Carter provides her patients with a treatment plan, or a written description of recommendations made for improving her patient’s health. This plan may include dietary guidelines, lifestyle suggestions, supplement prescriptions, and/or lab work.

  • I have been seeing Dr Liz for about 4 months now for a number of issues.  Before, I met her, I was so miserable with no health insurance and no doctor worth paying.  I love that Dr Liz doesn’t use insurance, but a sliding scale pay instead.  The appointments are 90 minutes long, so no rush and plenty of time to talk.  The acupuncture is great and I always leave feeling so relaxed and hopeful that I will get better.  I can tell slowly, I am feeling better.  She is incredibly knowledgeable.  I won’t see anyone else!
