- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

This doctor listened to my odd constellation of symptoms, asked questions, ordered a few tests and made an accurate diagnosis in record time. No games and no wasting time. Dr. McCarrick saved my life and diagnosed a rare lung cancer, one normally seen in industrial production jobs or in Vietnam vets - neither of which I am. Note that my initial visit, diagnosis, and almost immediate treatment started exactly one year ago today. I'm alive and feeling great. Thanks to an unusually intelligent doctor.
I was scared my lung cancer came back after 3 years. This doc found the cancer first time when it was early and got me fixed up. Went back to see him and he took my concerns very seriously and set me up for tests. Everything came back fine and all i had was a viral lung infrction and not cancer. This is a very kind man who knew how scared I was and had everuthing done fast to make sure no cancer. Wish rest of my doctors were half as smart and caring.
I am so grateful to this physician for diagnosing me with several long-term and chronic conditions. Someone finally listened to me and went forward to test and treat these complicated problems. I think having a pulminologist who is also a great internist is key to dealing with patients and their many overlapping diseases and problems. This doctor is a very calm, warm, easy going doctor who doesn't dismiss a patient because the pieces don't fit. This is one amazing doctor. I have given Dr. Mccarrick's name and telephone number to my family, friends and even people i don't know but have chatted with when say waiting in line or sitting on an airplane. I am grateful.
