Dr. McCarty's bio

This content was provided by Dr. McCarty "Over the last 14 years, Dr. Matt McCarty has enjoyed partnering with patients to restore function and break the grip that chronic pain has held on their lives. Dr. McCarty is a Board Certified Anesthesiologist with Subspecialty Certification in Pain Medicine. He received his undergraduate degree from Baylor University and medical school degree from the University of Oklahoma. He completed his anesthesiology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and practiced successfully in Tyler, Texas for 14 years. Once he decided to pursue his growing interest in Chronic Pain Medicine, Dr. McCarty completed a one-year fellowship in interventional chronic pain management at the University of South Florida and moved his family to Austin to begin private practice. He believes that chronic pain can rob us of our time, energy and relationships ultimately leading us to isolation and despair. He is committed to a partnership for success with his patients by returning them into community through the various treatment modalities such as physical therapy, medications, advanced interventional procedures and behavioral therapies. Dr. McCarty is also committed to research and innovation in the areas of medication monitoring and prescription fulfillment. He is the CEO and founder of Genotox Labs which performs genetic testing of our individual metabolic differences in metabolizing medication but primarily specializes in proprietary methods of urine drug monitoring. He has been honored to present the labs patent pending method called ToxPROtect, which aims to help other labs improve quality assurance surrounding lab labeling errors as well as detecting the use of substitute synthetic or other human urine in medication and sobriety monitoring."

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...more
