Dr. McCarthy is a great Dr. But his staff is extremely rude and does not have it together. Then when you need something or have a question they treat you bad like you are bothering them and it is their job . He would do alot better to have new staff .

Dr. McCarty is a wonderful doctor but his office staff are some of the rudest people I’ve ever been around. You no longer get to see him, he is always doing procedures so you will see his PA or NP.

Dr. McCarthy went above and beyond to care for my dad. He admitted him after dad went in to the ER for blood in the stool and lower abdominal pain. Knowing my dad’s medical history of a heart attack a little over a year earlier, Dr. McCarthy didn’t do just a GI work-up; he did a complete cardiac work up and other labs to check his total well being before doing any procedures. His bedside manner is friendly, showed concern, listened, and created great rapport with my dad. He made him feel comfort

Dr McCarthy cut the tendon in the back of ear by scraping real hard and now that I smoked it penetrated the face and head and neck leaving the real possibility of cancer since the out surrounding muscle attaching the ear to the head ripped wouldn't recommend that any tobacco users ever seek services from dr McCarthy only went to him once because of distance to dr kayo office wasn't fusible suggest make sure you know the dr really well even if referred from er at Clearfield not to be trusted ever
