Dr. McCarty happened to be at St. Tammany Hospital when I was wheeled in to the ER for an emergency operation on my hand after a terrible accident. At the time of the accident, I thought I wouldn’t be able to work much with my hands going forward. It has been a few years since the operation and I have been able to continue working in my craft. I am grateful and thankful for Dr. McCarty’s care in making a terrible situation work out and for his follow through during the occupational rehab with the fantastic specialists at St. Tammany Health Rehab.
