I wanted a 2nd opinion for my knee pain. At the appt only the xray report was forwarded. The PA came in & did a brief exam. Dr. McCarty came in and without an exam said i should have injections for arthritis, lose weight, and get exercise. I tried to explain that my mother and daughter's have a genetic disorder and not just arthritis. I tried to express to Dr. McCarty that I just wanted further testing before treating with injections and come back in 2 weeks. He refused & walked out of the room.

Dr. McCarty operated on my shoulder after other doctors could not diagnose the issue. He was able to diagnose and cure the issue through surgery. I can throw without pain again. My son had an ankle procedure done by Dr. McCarty, and has fully recovered and is playing U19 Select-level soccer with no issues. I have recommended Dr. McCarty to several people I know.

Dr. McCarty fixed my frozen shoulder with a labral tear. He was thorough in the exam and diagnostics, didn't rush to surgical option but was decisive when it was time. The surgery and physical therapy time went as expected and I've made a great recovery. He has a couple of VERY sharp PA's that are very knowledgeable, professional and make him more efficient and a better doctor in the process. While unfortunate to have seen many doctors, I think these two may be the best PA's I've seen.

My daughter tore her ACL and meniscus during basketball her senior year of high school 3 years ago. We had another surgeon do the first surgery but she was still in a lot of pain. We switched to Dr. McCarty who had to do a complete repair from the first surgery. We are now 7 weeks out and my daughter's knee feels the best it has ever felt in 3 years. Her Physical Therapists at Lacrosse are impressed with her recovery; she is well ahead of schedule. We highly recommend Dr. McCarty!
