In the last 30 years, Dr. McCarron has been there to diagnose all medical conditions I have experienced. He keeps looking for the origin of the problem, makes proper referrals, listens and really does care.

Both my husband and I have been patients of Dr. McCarron's since 1989. His knowledge of medicine and attention to our specific needs has kept us both healthy and active. He always answers all of our questions and takes a sincere interest in managing our healthcare. I can't say enough good things about my doctor and even when I'm not feeling well, both him and his staff make me feel so much better just by walking in his office!!!

Great Doctor??
Lafayette, LA |
Dr. McCarron is the best doctor that Lafayette has to offer. He is local born and raised and takes care of his patients like the southern gentleman he is. Last time i was in the office people kept bringing food and deserts to the office. I asked a few of the people what they were doing and they told me how this great man saved their life or their loved ones life. They bake sweets or food for him in gratitude. This is very comforting to hear when i was very sick.I only recommend Dr. McCarron

Dr. McCarron is the most empathetic and competent doctor I've ever dealt with. Always takes time to get best understanding of what I'm dealing with, which saves me a lot of greif.
in Lafayette, LA |
I have been, and continue to be, very fortunate to be under Dr. McCarron's care. The is a man who cares very deeply for his patients; I can attest to this because of some of the cardiovascular complexities that I present with and the indepth care/diagnostics as well as treatment that Dr. McCarron and his wonderful staff have provided to me. In fact, I trust Dr. McCarron so much that he will also treating my 19-year old son who will be getting established with him in the very near future. ????

I've been seeing Dr. McCarron for about 20 years. He has taken incredible care of me through the years and I would highly recommend him. His staff Donna, Becky and Capri are all very friendly and efficient.

Such an incredible staff! Nurse Donna is always warm and friendly! Dr. McCarron is the best in the area. He is personable, professional, and patient. Our whole family has benefited from the staff and service at this office.
Lafayette, LA |
My experience has been superb ever since I started as a patient. From the front desk, nurses and doctor everything is 5 stars all the way! I would definitely recommend this doctor and his wonderful nurses any day.
Lafayette, LA |
I love how I can get an appointment quickly when I feel I need to see a doctor. I appreciate that when I need medicine called out it is done the same day. Very friendly and helpful staff!
in Dallas, TX |
Very thorough evaluation and conversation with Dr. McCarron. I highly recommend him. However, to get to Dr. McCarron you have to go to the window to sign in and deal with Preslyn, who is very rude and rather antipersonnel. Next step is to get with the nurse named Donna. At this point things aren't any better. Whatever she needs to do with you appears to be taking her away from doing something else (something personal?). It would be nice to be greeted by staff members with a personality.
Houston, TX |
He is no doubt a great doctor and very pleasant. As to staff from front desk to nurse DONNA, I wouldn't take my son there even if it was an emergency.. RUDE, RUDE & RUDE.. don't know frankly how he keeps then... No manners whatsoever and they could care less about you.
in Lafayette, LA |
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
in Broussard, LA |
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.
in Lafayette, LA |
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.
Lafayette, LA |
The most caring,thorough, patient doctor I have ever had in 83 years.
