A few years ago, I fell and tore my Rotator Cuff just before an overseas trip. I consulted with Dr. Mccarty and he felt it would be ok to make the trip since I had someone going along with me and have surgery when I returned. It worked out well and the surgery on return was successful. There was a follow up period for rehab and my shoulder is still fine, from surgery performed over 10 years ago. I remember him as caring, competent and kind and highly recommend him.
I can't rate Dr. McCarty highly enough. He is empathetic (a must for people in pain) but he cuts to the heart of the issues and options. He and his team are top notch. Following surgery, I received follow up phone calls, appointments are easy to book. I like that he has interns and fellows, because he is sharing his knowledge but if that's a problem for you it's something you should now. Also, he does tend to run a bit behind schedule but in my opinion that means he takes the necessary time with patients, not whatever the little block that has your appointment time in it dictates. He's worth waiting for. I'm a middle aged woman and not an athlete but he made me feel that my concerns for my knee were as important as any elite athlete.
My wife is a local pain and rehab. Doctor. I requested that she ask her associates and area physical therapist who they felt was the best physician to perform surgery on my shoulder. Overwhelmingly, Dr. Mccarty was the number one Doc suggested. Within days, not weeks, I had the initial consultation, and the operation performed. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Mccarty's compassion, personal nature, and expertise. I could not give a more glowing assessment of my total experience with Dr. Mccarty and his expert staff!
I am so happy I found Dr. McCarty. He is unfailingly competent and caring in his tx and I never feel put off because I'm not a performing athlete. I'm just an everyday person in pain and I'm taken seriously and treated fairly. The "team" is great!!
