About Dr. Carter

Having been raised in North Carolina as part of a military family, I appreciated early on the diversity of our population. I realized three distinct cultures in our State: our Coastal flatlands, the Piedmont, and the Mountains, each with their own dialects and style of foods. I did not realize until medical school that besides living in the Bible belt we were also living in the kidney stone, heart attack, stroke, and diabetic/metabolic syndrome belt.

While paying back my time in the United States Air Force, I discovered my passion for empowering my patients instead of just enabling them. I joined the ACP, AMA, ADA, Southeastern Lipid Association, National Lipid Association, COSEHC, and SMA. I learned from the experiences of experts on how to apply strategies in taking great care of my patients here in my hometown of Hickory, North Carolina. This entails educating my patients at Allora Med Spa about healthy diets and activities and helping them develop a personalized wellness plan. Whether you’re managing a chronic illness, have a family history of disease or consider yourself the picture of health, there’s always room for improvement.
