Specialties

Dr. Heather L Mccarthy has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Spends 45 seconds with you and calls it a virus. Both of my kids have ended up hospitalized 4 hours after seeing her due to her negligence

Changing doctors

Hello! I was excited to find a pediatric DO because I feel they are typically more thorough and caring. This was definitely NOT the case...I found Dr. McCarthy to be extremely rude and condescending. I will definitely NOT be bringing my children back there. By the way, two of my three kids did not pick up on anything amiss with the doctor's behavior. My oldest commented that she feels "ALL kid doctors should really LIKE kids...it should be a law." Too funny that 8 year old could pick up on this.

I had to talk to Dr. McCarthy and right after I hung up the phone I changed pediatricians. She is rude. She doesnt help and talks down to you. She was no help at all and acted like I was bothering her. I would not recommend her to anyone.
