This content was provided by Dr. McCarthy "As a surgeon I believe that every patient is equally important and deserving of the best care I can provide. I also believe that surgery is not necessarily the best solution for every problem and that all alternatives should be investigated and discussed with the patient. The patients need to have things explained in a way that they can understand so they can make an informed decision. Bedside manner is every bit as important as high quality care and you will not find yourself waiting for hours in the offie to be seen."
