Additional Information: 
PA Carnes calls Augusta Georgia his home of origin. He has chosen to reside in the Skagit Valley area since retiring from the USAF after 23 years. The highlights of his USAF career include receiving the Bronze star in 2005 and serving on the medical team that serves the President and Vice President of the United States from 2009-2012. He also received recognition as Outstanding Global Health Person of the Year for the USAF (2005) and Excellence in Deployed Preventive Medicine for the DoD (2009). He had 12 different assignments during this time and practiced medicine in over 17 countries. After all those travels he chose this as his favorite location to settle down. He enjoys all the water activities that abound in this area. If it is in, on, or around the water he will enjoy it. He has served as the department chair for the urgent care clinics since June 2016. His practice philosophy is to try and treat every patient like they are family.
