Patient Comments (2)
in Reno, NV |
Dr. McCarthy has been my physician for many years. She is always pleasant, has a great sense of humor, and most importantly takes the time to listen. I have always believed that I receive the best medical care possible. She is always up to date on the latest medical research and treatments. When booked she has seen me after hours if I felt I needed to see her that day. Cant beat that!!!!!
Dr. McCarhy is rude, insensitive, and smug. I saw her the day before having a hysterectomy for debilitating endometriosis and lifelong trauma associated with it. I was 32 and without children. I lost the chance to have a normal life because of this disease. She, an attending physician, heard of my upcoming procedure from my PCP and rudely told me to convince her why I thought I got to have a hysterectomy. I can't even explain how offensive this was, on the cusp of relief. Horrible person.
Dr McCarthy is a PCP herself and does not get referrals from other PCPs. A hysterectomy is the correct treatment of choice for disabling endometriosis, regardless of prior pregnancies. This surgery should be offered to this patient at any age; age is not a determining factor. Dr McCarthy agrees with the treatment listed for this patient.
