I've heard great things about Dr. McCarron so I was excited to get an appointment as a new patient. My insurance card was given to his administrative staff a week ahead of time. I show up for my appointment and I am met with his rude nurse telling me my insurance card doesn't look familiar and they cannot accept it. I then say ok," well then I will pay out of pocket for today's visit". She says "I'm sorry, but the doctor won't see you at all"...........all I can say is WOW! #sad

Dr McCarron is an excellent exceptional doctor. He is kind, friendly,& talented. Poor rating does not reflect on his ability or professionalism. Low rating is directly contributed to his administrative practice and staff. No pre-authorization over phone, delayed and/or failing to process authorizations sent from insurance providers timely. Patients must argue with both his staff and insurance provides to get required medications processed. Staff simply does not want to be bothered. Not worth it.

One of the best diagnosticians I have ever seen. He truly cares for his patients. Sometimes being a terrific professional isn't enough. Sometimes a patient needs a cheerleader. He is not afraid to do that, and frankly it is great. Highly recommended.

The most caring,thorough, patient doctor I have ever had in 83 years.
