Overdue but came in today with church friend. Doctor Kat is a sports team podiatrist but should be our church podiatrist as well. She has treated over eight of us for ankle fracture surgery, ankle sprains, ingrown nails, dislocated foot in car accident and many other things I cant remember. She also diagnosed a friend with rheumatoid saving her from multiple surgeries. She is so skilled, nice and straightforward.

Very long wait times in office. Very long recovery time. More foot surgery was done than discussed causing 8 month recovery time and still have some pain. No rehab was given even though it was requested by me. Pain meds and creme were prescribed only after several months out of cast(s). They were also sent to my home without my consent and attempted to bill me after being refused. Time mentioned to be off my foot was not correct and went into several months no weight bearing. Ancient Xray.

Coming from a medical and athletic family, I sought 3 opinions on my issue. She was the most decisive and thorough. I can't thank her enough for changing my life for the better (although I had to have major surgery and 4 months to recover). I'm active and even back to running now after nothing for years. Rare to find a great surgeon with great bedside manner.

My son was originally referred to another podiatrist, who was eager to conduct surgery. Doing some research we found Dr McCarty and she provided a more realistic to his condition and how to balance/fix with his highly active soccer schedule! So glad we found her!

Dr. McCarty was not particularly punctual, however, the care and attention I received was absolutely worth waiting for. It's been my experience these past years it is normal to have to wait in a Doctor's office. Nevertheless, she was very professional, took care of my foot problems, recommended ortho inserts that were less expensive, but the most important thing is she fixed my feet issues and I have no more pain! I highly recommend Dr. McCarty.

Since my accident in 2015, I had foot pain and sought treatment. It didn't work so I listened to my wife to come to McCarty. First time-I waited 10 minutes and then they did my Xrays. I then waited another 10 minutes before Dr. McCarty came in and spent 30 minutes with me explaining my leg and ankle issues, my Xrays, and why my pain hadn't resolved (basically what the other 2 doctors missed). I have one more visit but after 2 months, I think I'm healed. Really excited to start training agai

Had a 9:45 appt. At 10:15, I asked the receptionist if it would be much longer. She replied she was just waiting for a room. Another 15 min go by. I asked if it was normal to wait this long (45 min now) to see the doctor. She said, it depends. She's a specialist, she may have procedures to do. I said I also have things to do, I cannot wait for 45 minutes with no end in sight. I left. I don't care how good she is, ifshe has 45+min of wait time, she cannot manage her patients.

Two different surgeons told me my prognosis was poor and they couldn't (or wouldn't) help me. After years of failed treatments, Dr. McCarty listened to me. Although it required a major, reconstructive surgery, I am back to jogging and my life. I cant thank her enough. She's so kind and talented. Even my scars have almost faded.

Had excellent results from foot surgery. Dr. McCurty removed a bunion and straightened toes that were being pushed sideways by that bunion. She guided me thru the recovery period giving me instructions on how to care for my foot. I can't believe how good my foot looks now. I'm very pleased with the outcome and highly recommend Dr. McCarty.

Dr. McCarty was very committed and diligent to cure my feet issues. We tried different types of treatments and she was very determined to find a solution. We were successful in the end and I'm grateful for her determination and breath of knowledge which ultimately led better quality of life for me.

I felt like she was being dismissive and she couldn't decide if one of my toes had a fungus or not, I did schedule a procedure but canceled it because I found a different Doctor the next day.

Dr. McCarty is one of the few physicians who actually spends time with her patients and listens to what they have to say.

Dr. McCarty is very knowledgable. She cares about her patients as if they were her own family. I have sent a few of my friends and family to her because I know they are in good hands.

Dr. McCarty was an excellent physician when I needed advice on ankle issues. She was knowledgable, personable and very caring. She recommended a great physical therapist group to help with rehabilitation. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

Doctor McCarty is great. However, the billing staff and office manager are rude and do not bill correctly which results in over charges. It takes forever to get a refund.

Even with appointments at 8:30 in the morning, you can plan to wait more than an hour to actually see her.
