What People Say About Dr. L McCarty III, MD
Reply
After a bad experience at Tria, I ended up with Dr. McCarty so he could fix my previous botched surgery. He is the most compassionate surgeon, and isn't an arrogant jerk like so many others. He is exceptional not only with the surgical procedures, but also for continuing care and making sure you're taken care of to the best of his abilities. He has an extensive network of specialist and will refer you to the best if you need something further. I can emphasize enough how highly I recommend him!
