Doesn't know how to communicate with patient. No response when my husband told her he had tightness in his chest. Total space cadet. Should work alone in a lab somewhere.

She is very hard to work with. She is constantly wanting return visits so she can log up more co-pays. Does not give me the level of care that the previous female partner provided,

I am not able to comment on Dr. McCarthy as I have only seen her once (after transferring my care from Dr. Paar). But, her PA is the worst I have ever come across. It took her 3 full days to respond to my pharmacy's request for refills. Plus, it took her 3 times to get the correct form/dosage for my routine medication properly submitted to the pharmacy. In the meantime, I had to go 4 full days without this ongoing medication. The office staff also needs a few pointers in professionalism.
