"He repeatedly tells me that this is what he plans to do, and he's not going to do it for anyone else but himself. But Aaron also has a lot of things and reasons - I'm not going to use the word 'excuses' because that's not what I want to use - but concerts, some legal things."
"The mentality is once I can get these taken care of, then I will go ... Every day I hope that I hear from Aaron that he's going. Only Aaron knows now what will happen with his future," Stork continued.
"Aaron is committed to working on his wellness and being the best person and performer possible," Carter's rep said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.
"Whatever path he chooses to go down to better himself, he will do so privately and quietly. More than anything else, he is grateful for the constant support and love from his fans and he looks forward to a bright future."
Carter's apperance on "The Doctors" Thursday also included the 29-year-old being tested for HIV, which came back negative. He also tested negative for chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis.
"I felt like I was putting people at risk with my body," Carter told Stork. "And that was scary and what else scared me is that I didn't have the courage to go face the music."
Other tests included Carter testing negative for cocaine and meth but testing positive for other drugs.
"Benzodiazepines, Xanax for instance, positive. It was also positive for opiates, hydrocodone," Stork said while reading the results.
