What People Say About Dr. Colleen McCarthy, MD

Dr. McCarthy did my reconstruction after a double mastectomy. The results came out beautifully. Had seen another surgeon earlier but that unnamed surgeon had their own ideas about what was best .Dr McCarthy on the other hand listened to what I wanted and showed me how what I wanted would look on me . Her staff has always been kind, thoughtful and professional. When my world was tilted because of cancer and I needed to know that things would be okay . She delivered that assurance. My breast are so beautiful and perky now I call them my 18 year old new sisters, hahaha . That's the best compliment I can possibly give her .

I highly recommend Dr. Colleen McCarthy. I was referred to Dr. McCarthy and cannot speak more highly of her knowledge and expertise. Dr. McCarthy explained all of my options and her recommendations, conducted my surgery, and follow up visits. She is a highly skilled surgeon along with her kind and caring nature and wonderful staff. I highly recommend and trust Dr. McCarthy.
