Dr McCarty could care less about his patients and more about the money he makes. Very poor bedside manner, and makes you feel like a drug seeker if you're not in a certain class of people. He upcharges for just about everything, including Prior Authorizations. He does not care about you or your pain, your simply just a number to him. I strongly advise against seeing him.

I am totally impressed with Dr. McCarty and unfortunately I know pain Drs. Without question he is the best I have seen. From a human perspective(no ego problem- just self confidence), knowledge (He knows the subject matter), and most importantly he has the ability to put those two attributes together and discuss in layman’s terms a tentative diagnosis; the testing needed to figure out the correct diagnosis, and what to do that should/could correct the diagnosed problem(s). Quite clearly a breath of fresh air.

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about a year ago and have unsuccessfully seen countless specialists since then in an attempt to get back to "normal" as much as possible. Today for the first time, I finally felt heard and understood. Dr. McCarty asked great probing questions, didn't interrupt me at all while I was speaking and was very empathetic. I look forward to following his treatment plan and improving my quality of life!
