Dr. McCarron is an excellent and great doctor. However, his administrative staff and nurse (Donna) are the opposite. The staff and the nurse are RUDE. They give you the feeling that they do not care. After several years, enough is enough. I am searching for another doctor now. I really hate leaving Dr. McCarron, that is why I stayed with him for several years. But I am glad and happy that I do not have to deal with his staff and nurse again.

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.

Dr McCarron is my personal family physician and has been for almost 20 years. Quite frankly, I think he is the best in Lafayette. He is very professional yet personable. I cannot imagine having another medical doctor.

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!!!

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

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. ????
